Didn't find it!! I don't know, it is past the junction for Lacones, up the hill then there is a junction on the right for Liapades, go past that and a few more yards on the right is the butcher, set back with a large car park, you just can't miss it. But it looks like you did, better luck next year.
If you like BBQs Saturday night at Faros is the best, great food and Yannis does a bit of Greek dancing for you.

BBQs are not bonfires (depending how you cook!). Yep bonfires not allowed until 01.11. Please remember most (not all!) fires are deliberately started. Try starting one in a metal bucket with a cigarette butt if you want. It can be done - but very very difficult.

In my view the sale of portable BBQ's should be banned in Corfu during the high risk times...even with all this destruction to our lovely island you can bet some smartie will want a BBQ in the mountains.
Please Mr Mayor if you are reading this...

Cannot reiterate enough that in the present circumstances I don't think anyone should be having BBQ's because of the fire risk. Open fires are banned in Greece from 1/5 to 31/10 and in a lot of cases I would class a BBQ as an open fire - even the ones with chimneys I have seen sparks flying out of the top. In the past I have had to put out a fire because of someone using lighter fluid to light the BBQ which set fire to the adjacent olive tree. People don't seem to realise that just one spark is enough to set the hillside alight. I don't want to be a killjoy but please take care.

Completely agree and I have just got rid of my BBQ for that very reason. If my neighbour saw smoke coming from my garden, guaranteed within 5 minutes I would have a fire-engine turning into my driveway. I quite agree that BBQs should not be used at this time of year, especially in view of the current circumstances.
Of course it is. That's why there's no precedent. (as long as you're sensible).
We all know how the fires start. It's not BBQs and it's not cigarette ends.
But no, living in the middle of a pine forest, I would never be complacent with a BBQ at any time of the year.

I cant believe anyone in their right mind would want to stand over a BBQ in this heat. Spring, autumn and winter but not in the height of the summer.
You are so wrong to think fires havent started with BBQs and cigarette ends. Obviously not these fires that are raging if they are arson but it only takes one tiny spark in this tinder dry summer! Wouldnt it be better not to even take the risk?
