I can't help you with specific places but I do not think I have ever been to any taverna which does not have at least half a dozen or more items on the menu for vegetarians  ranging from salads to pastas and from Pizza to omelettes. There are also such goodies as baked veggies (greek ratatouille) lentil patties, fried courgettes and aubergines, giant bean in sauce, green beans, wild greens, fried cheeses, the list is endless

I am not a vegetarian but eat very little meat so I often have all sorts of vegetarian dishes

The Greek ratatouille, mentioned above is called Briam or Briami, now to the end of the season is the best time to try it, as Autumn vegetables like pumpkin and squashes start to come into season. Its like a vegetable cassarole, and varies from kitchen to kitchen.

I will never forget the first time I tasted Briam.  It was a few years ago in Kalami Beach Taverna, we had ordered it as a side dish.  Just a plate of vegetables but the explosion of flavour in the mouth was amazing.
Another memorable vegetarian dish (not vegan though) was a starter we had a George's on Almyros beach - a slice of aubergine wrapped round a chunk of cheese and baked in the oven in a tomato sauce.  It was heavenly.
Like SusieH, we are not vegetarians, we just often find ourselves choosing meatless options whilst we are on Corfu, sometimes because we want to eat light and mostly because they are just so good.
I cannot recommend specific establishments in Corfu town Boymick as we are not familiar with them.  I agree again with SusieH that you will find a range of vegetarian options & 'Italian' dishes on menus at most tavernas & restaurants.  Corfu, along with the other Ionian islands, was once colonized by the Venetians so pasta & pizza are almost as normal as moussaka.

We've been and come back but we're going again.

Think the first time we had briam was about 20years ago on Kos. In those days you got briam and some skordarlia (cold mashed spuds with olive oil and garlic) with every hot meal.

For many years briam seemed to vanish off tourist type menus all over Greece but then started making a comeback. Mind you you could see it slow cooking in almost every Greek home every day!!

We were in our favourite greek restaurant in Manchester, Rozafa, yesterday and I had an absolutely delicious Yemista (stuffed pepper & tomato).
