Kaminaki beach is an oasis of tranquillity, considered to be one of the most picturesque locations on the island. Easily missed by those unaware of its existence, Kaminaki is a traditional Corfiot village with idyllic narrow lanes and cottages boasting a breathtaking seaside vista. A hidden treasure, the village has an informal unspoilt atmosphere and is a favourite amongst couples and families alike.
The beach is clean, the water crystal clear and is ideal for families and keen snorkellers alike. Familiar faces come to our wonderful retreat year after year, confirming its enduring allure to those who have discovered Kaminaki’s secret charms.
The Taverna opens early May and closes early October.

Delicious, traditional, fresh food and value for money. A handful of this and a pinch of that. These are the secrets to Spiro's success. Even the locals say (with hushed voices) that his moussaka is better than their mothers'. High praise indeed...
The baker calls every morning with freshly baked bread, the fisherman brings his catch just in time for lunch. A variety of grilled fish and meat, plus specialities such as our tender chicken kebabs, lamb kleftico that will melt in your mouth, tas kebab (tender cubes of beef in a rich tomato sauce served with rice and yoghurt - always a sell out). Fresh and delicious salads and traditional homemade dips, generous enough to feed two. All prepared with care and pride.
Ingredients of the highest quality, time-honoured experience and a wonderfully tranquil setting makes for a wonderful eating experience. Our customers come back year after year to savour Spiros' traditional delights.
Kati Thavres...“you will find something”.
The Taverna was converted from a working olive press in 1975 by the Mavronas family. Costa ran the business, his wife Elpida preparing traditional Greek recipes in their kitchen. Their son, Spiros, joined them after National Service and worked with his parents - waiting, cooking.
Both tourists and locals return year after year, tempted by the wonderful fresh food and tranquil location.
Although named 'Kati Thavres' (meaning “you will find something”) from the early days, the Taverna is known by one and all as 'Spiro's Taverna on the Beach'.
Spiros met his wife, Sue, in 1983. They married and have three children Elisabeth, Lucy and Mark. Spiros' parents have now retired and he has now taken over his mothers role in the kitchen. However, Elpida's ever-popular greek recipes are still cooked to this day.
