As it's my first time to Corfu, I am really looking forward to visiting this taverna as there are so many wonderful reports. Staying at Kalami, not sure of the geography yet, did someone say that it is possible to walk to Agni or do I need to find out about the water taxi ? Also is there Greek background music or just water lapping the shore and happy people noise ?

You can walk, but the boat taxi is much more fun!
As for music, can't remember!!!!

You can only walk round to the taverna during daylight hours (perfect for a long lunch). The walk will only take you about 15-20 minutes and is a combination of minor road, footpath, track and rocks. Not overly difficult but not recommended for those with walking difficulties.
As Anna points out, we have the lapping of the sea to listen to! I will only put on music (gentle Greek pop music) at certain times - and at a low volume. You may be suprised to note though that this year I have added soft piped music into the toilets!!!

It gets more exciting by the minute - piped music in the toillets- sounds a bit posh and Becks !
I shall remember to take a torch, that's a good one especially as I believe we're up a track and get left with our cases at the beginning of the holiday, (in the dark) to scramble about and fumble for a pink apartment.
Sorry, about the typing - wine kicks in at this time of night.
Thanks for all the information, can't wait.

You don't need music there. Just the sound of the waves lapping along the shore, the sunshine, watching the boats go in and out, laughter, wonderful food and wonderful company. Ahh bliss.

More often than not I agree with the "no music" angle, although there would be times when the atmosphere lends itself well to a few tunes (think that depends on the company and how much wine had been quaffed)
Music in the loos, whatever next..............

I agree, if you have a good crowd at your table, and the conversation is good, and the natural sounds are abound around you, then music should be very low key, just something to fill in the background if need be.
I have heard of Garage Music, but Loo Music. Its for ever changing the music world isnt it.
Anyway Nathan, I hope it is flushed with success for you, .

No Chris(seaangler) it is not you getting older.Even though my music taste is not your cup of tea,and vice verse,when on holiday i enjoy listening to the greek music.When in the party mood,i love the dance music.
Chris (sailor).You wouldn't be able to hear any music with our bunch anyway. Way tooooooooo much chatting and laughing going on.
On the Agni walk - what exactly to you mean by rocks? Is this a long stretch of rocks or a few rocks. What sort of rocks are we talking about, big bolders or little clumps? It would be the rocks that would determine for me if I could do the walk or not. I have done walks with a few low lying rocks but did these by using my hands and shuffling on my bottom. Would this method be possible. If so, do sea urchins come into the equation!

Don't panic it's just a bit rocky in places but there's no rock climbing involved, you can do it all on two feet, depending of course on how much alcohol has been consumed! There's no point where you need to be in the water so sea urchins are not a problem. It's rocky in the sense that there are rocks around but you are following a path of sorts, uneven and up and down at times but perfectly accessible and very enjoyable especially on the way there, knowing what's ahead.

Wow the taverna is getting very fancy, piped in music in the loos? Whatever next?! lol I just hope you don't have a tape recorder in there also Nathan, what with people sitting on the loo singing away to themselves to the piped in music! lol
Ryan - I think Chris is talking about the Greek Night at Nicholas' Taverna, I haven't been to it personally but it does look fun and MAD! I think the Cocktails and Dreams one is mad enough for me! lol
