“Perfect evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2016

We were staying in a villa just outside Kalami for the last week for June, and walked down to this restaurant for our first evening meal out. Having watched The Durrells on TV, it was lovely to see the property. We had pre-booked by calling in earlier in the day and were invited to choose our preferred table, so opted for the 6 of us to be right against the water. It was idyllic, with views across the bay and the water lapping so close. Perhaps not so good if you have young children, or an accident-prone grown-up sister like me, who we put on the “land” side!!
We enjoyed carafes of local white and rose wine which we all deemed very drinkable. We had a variety of starters and mains plus some desserts to share and were very happy with everything. The meal was rounded off with complementary limoncello in a carafe for us to help ourselves. In fact we said we’d all be happy to come back here to end our holiday as it was the perfect evening. However with so many great tavernas in this area, we were spoilt for choice and decided we should go by boat to Nikolas Taverna in Agni (will review separately) – but to be honest the food at The White House was better.
Another day we hired a motorboat from the White House (they have an office on the other side of the road from the restaurant for this) and spent a lovely day out on the water, exploring the coves along this lovely stretch of coastline.

“Terrible Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2016

Who serves Octopus with a grilled tomato? Cold saganaki ..... with a grilled tomato on top? the list goes on. If you want pizza, hamburgers and brownies, this is the place for you by the sea. If you want greek food, go somewhere else.

“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2016 via mobile

Went to visit the Durrell's White House residence in Kalami, there is a restaurant attached to the house so stopped for a drink. Great view over the bay with some fantastic yachts moored up, there is a stony beach with plenty of sun beds for hire and places to eat.

“High hopes, not disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2016

We came (as many (especially English) people probably do) because of the Durrell connection, and we were not disappointed. Slightly upmarket from your standard taverna, the White House is also slightly more expensive, but worth the extra. Our table, right by the water's edge, offered a superb view of the harbour and gave us an evening we will long remember. So don't hesitate to book if you have a special occasion. The service was efficient and the food as good as we have come to expect in Corfu.

“Fab food in a stunning location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2016

This is the famous Gerald Durrell Whitehouse and was one of our favourite places to eat in Kalami. It's best to book in high season to ensure the best table. We had biggest prawns ever and all the food was delicious. Price 25 to 35 Euros per person depending on food choice. We found the house wine very palatable so no need to pay higher cost for bottled wine.
