Since 1936, Mr Tripa – Spyros Anyfantis – has been presiding over his taverna in the picturesque village of Kinopiastes seven kilometers south-west of Corfu Town.
During those years, the taverna’s reputation as a spot for genuine Corfiot fare has grown, so that everyone of any note singles out TRIPA for a visit during a stay on the island.
Among those who have enjoyed Tripa’s famous hospitality are Greek President Constantine Karamanlis, French President Francois Mitterand, actress Jane Fonda, Aristotle Onassis and the original Zorbas Anthony Quinn.
But the patronage of the famous does not mean that TRIPA taverna is formal. The atmosphere is friendly and the service fast and attentive.
