Just booked flights for 1 week from 28 April so I'm hoping some of the restaurants are open!

It is earlier than we would usually go but I have other commitments so it's go early or not at all.

Hi Deedee, We usually go for Easter which can be as early as the end of March and several are open including Petrinos, Tavernaki, Castello and Little Italy, I know Melina Bay will be also open this year for Easter and there will probably more by the time you go, Cheers Sue

Easter in Greece and the UK is the same this year, Easter Sunday being 16th April. Most places open 1st May, but many do stay open after Easter. Sure that we can point you in the right direction Deedee. x

Tabernaki in Kassiopi was open for last Easter. You could call them to double check.
We are in town for this Easter and most places will be open there so that is always an option.
Have a lovely time.

Thank you all so much.

In another departure from our norm we have booked an apartment without a sea view.  We had two very lazy holidays last year and thought we needed to do something different to encourage us to be a little more active.  This time, if I want to see the sea, I'll have to walk a little further than to our balcony. It might also encourage us to try some of the tavernas we have never been in.

We always do that too at at Easter Deedee, its the only time we stay right in the village and I love it when its quieter and you can just stroll to the bakery, supermarket or down to the harbour for a coffee and you do not feel so much like a holiday maker, and if its tipping down at night its easy to run home !

We got home in the early hours of this morning after a week of bliss.  Thoroughly enjoyed a week off real life.  No TV, no newspapers and only on the inernet twice - to check arrangements for meeting up with resident friends and to check for any changes to our return flight.  
Nikos-Cassiopeia was very comfortable and a great base for our holiday.  We had advised that we would be arriving in the early hours and they advised us of the access arrangements.  We walked in to find ourselves in a spacious, two bedroomed apartment rather than the studio we had booked.  When we met our hosts on Saturday afternoon we asked whether we were in the right unit and Natasha responded that, as they were not full, they thought we would benefit from the full kitchen facilities of the larger apartment.  It was good to have a full size fridge freezer & cooker.
Somewhat to my surprise, I didn't miss having a sea view.
About two thirds of Kassiopi was open at the beginning of our stay and more eateries, bars & shops opened during our week.  Almost everywhere is open from today.  When we were in Kassiopi during the day we lunched at Virginia's enjoying the food, wine and view.  We also had an early dinner there last night  before leaving for the airport - tried their delicious burgers for the first time.  We dined at Melina Bay three times - different style and price point to Virginia's but we find at both venues the food, wine, staff and view combine into a very positive experience.  We tried breakfast at Bolero - good bacon & good coffee.  If we had been there for longer than week we would probably have tried an evening meal there  - maybe next time.  
Outside of Kassiopi we had a leisurely Sunday lunch with MCH & Elliemay at Taverna Yialos (off the main road across the North) and a great evening with them at Taverna Bikolis at Peroulades.  
It was a joy to be there so early in the season with all the plant life in abundance and spring fresh. During a walk round Roda en route to meet our friends for that Sunday lunch we came cross a beautiful rose garden and watched the beach being prepared for the season.
The only problem we had with this holiday was that a week just wasn't enough, even though it was our 17th visit to Corfu.
