Only just arrived but here is what we have seen.
Binelikia has closed and the building up for rent. (Katerina has converted the ground floor of her house in the mountain village of Petalia into a kafeneon with a summer menu of what ever she decides to do, just like the old days)
Alegria is closing for two weeks from this weekend of Paska.
The blue grill is closing for one week from Paska also.
The Central Bar is now being operated by our friend Vasili, who used to be up in Ano Perithia, he is also serving food lunch and dinner. At the moment no menu, he just tells you what he has.
Contrary to rumours I have heard during the winter, there are no shortages of supplies in the supermarkets, everything just seems to be about the same.
Oh! The dress shop at the Roda end of town that was closing down last year, has opened as a coffee and cake shop,

Cheers for the update.

Where is Petalia in relation to Acharavi please?
Also, surprised the Central Bar has changed hands as thought it was doing well.
Anyway, if you hear of any Greek nights being held in Acharavi then please let us know. It was great at Binelikia last year. Such a shame it has closed.
Cheers againThumbs Up

Petalia is on the road up to Pantocrator, it is one of the highest villages on Corfu.
About 20minutes up from Acharavi.

Sorry no idea, we just drive up through the one way system that way, it never seems very busy.
Even the two Easter parades didn't go through that way this year.

We used to go that way when Steve and Anne had The Zanzibar, but when that closed some years ago, we stopped going that way.
If we need a bar, we use Tete a Tete, or Central Bar. We can people watch from there, most of our circle of friends meet up there.

The taxi rank has moved up from the old location by the roundabout, is now on the other side of the road opposite Lemon Garden.

Were is Tete a Tete please?
I tend to use Adonis, Hovoli or the Orpheus for our pre/post meal tipples, but we have decided
to try a few more bars this year. Might even re-visit when we first started going to Acharavi and give Harry's bar a try. Used to have some fun nights in there!

Central Bar and Tete a Tete are diagonally opposite the Pumphouse Taverna.
Near the roundabout.
Had our coffee there this morning before shopping.

Cheers Bob.
Been in the Central many times but not in the bar next door and never noticed the name!
Might have to give it a try now. Roll on July!
