The way a customer says “goodnight” shows everything…Mr. Karydis give us some information about Olympia Mare.
Olympia Mare, established in 2006, is a beachfront restaurant located in the gifted area of Gouvia Marina, and is a branch of Olympia Restaurant located in Kanalia.
To whom does Olympia Mare address?
The menu of Olympia Mare is based on Corfiot and Mediterranean cuisine. Our customers are locals who want to degust authentic flavors, or to carry out various social events such as baptisms, weddings etc, but also tourists who are in Corfu for holidays and are staying in the Marina, by their private or rented boat.
What is the feedback from your clients?
Everything is posted on the restaurant’s profile on Internet. I believe that the way a customer says “goodnight” shows everything… I've obtained the best smiles from my customers and the most important is that Olympia Mare has a loyal clientele! The reviews for the restaurant are excellent as you can verify by searching on Internet.
What about your own favorite dishes?
My favourite dishes ours are coming from the local cuisine, but this is not obliging as you know every person has its own eating preferences…For example the ideal dish for someone might be a steak about 600 grams but for someone else can be lobster spagetti or pastitsada.. Everything has to do with preferences!
You offer a wide range of wines, tell us about that, we would like to see a little bit in it, what are the wines you suggest and what are those preferred by your customers?
We recommend local Corfiot wines that are descent and products of local vine varieties. In Olympia Mare one can find a large number of selected labels. The wine preferences of our clientele are oriented to Corfiot wines since the visitor of Corfu wants to try something local...
Closing the interview I would like to ask you if Olympia Mare, is close to Corfu town.
The Gouvia Marina is about 7km far from Corfu town and that is an advantage for those who want to visit us.
