Had a fabulous evening at the Orchard. Visited for a lunchtime drink and booked for evening meal- was really impressed. Ginger Ale so refreshing, Meatball starter the best, kleftiko and souvlaki were excellent and probably the best coffee and baklava on the island. This along with fantastic hosts and very different surroundings in the garden made for a lovely family evening. Well worth the little walk -thank you.

Having read the reviews we had to see the "biggest waterfall in Corfu" and the food was worth it too.
Starters of meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce were melting and the sauce was spiced with cinnamon, not chilli, and reduced to a sticky perfection, it is easy to burn so shows a good hand in the kitchen.
Equally the taramasalata was just the right side of fishy and the garlic bread, light, crispy and not greasy. As good start.
On to the mains and the chips are made on the premises by hand. I had the chicken in a similar sauce to my starter and again the meat was cooked perfectly.
However it was eclipsed by the Kleftico. Now you really must go hungry or share! A parcel of tin foil arrived the size of a small washing up bowl, opening this released a fragrant steam, potatoes, onions and carrots cooked with herbs, wine? (I would) the broth the lamb makes is sublime and a substantial soup in itself. We should have asked for a bowl to have for supper but didn't as we had other things to do before we got back and it was hot.
Final course of lemon drizzle cake, made with their own lemons was another hit, I know having stuffed my self silly how did I force another dollop down? Quite easily actually but as I write this I can see I have consumed mightily.
Last mention is for the local beer. The Corfu Beer is on a par with anywhere and the local wine sold by the carafe easily drinkable.
Try it.

We have been to Sidari three times over the years and tried many places to eat. Quite frankly, The Orchard is the best restaurant in the area. The food is freshly made and authentic. The setting is fantastic in a lovely garden. The service is wonderful and the best in Sidari. We really enjoy eating here, relaxing and then having a nice chat with the owner. We wish this lovely family all the best!

Made to feel very welcome, food was lovely and we ate outside in the garden, prompt service, more up market than the cheaper places in sidari but would highly recommend. Lovely local beers too, the ginger beer was lovely.

We liked this place from a first sight, so when we eventually went to there, we end up only with drinks.

This restaurant looks amazing, so green, nice lighting.

The service was horrible, there was a few of us, we were thinking what to order, etc, wanted to try some local beers. Ended up on trying super expensive beers and leaving. It is astonishing how waiters can be off putting... and treat you unwelcome etc..

So we do not recomment this place.
