“Amazing rudeness of staff! ”
Review of Grec Espresso Bar

Grec Espresso Bar
Ranked #17 of 28 Coffee & Tea in Corfu Town
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 September 2017 via mobile

This is my first ever Trip Adviser review, and I felt compelled to write this as a result of truly dreadful service we received at this bar.

As regular visitors to Corfu, we'd been on the receiving end of bad service in this bar before, but the way the waitress treated us last night was almost comical, so ignorant was her behaviour.

We stopped by Bar Grec for a quick beer before heading back to our hotel after a lovely meal elsewhere in Corfu town. There was no 'hello ' or greeting from any staff, we had to make them aware we'd arrived. She literally threw our (over priced for Greece) Heineken at us, grabbed the money off table and threw the change back at us. She was more interested in hanging with her mates than looking after paying customers.

The guy behind the bar begrudgingly gave us the WiFi password like it was him personally paying the broadband bill!

Maybe they think they don't have to try hard due to the central location ... but there are lots of nicer bars around where the staff are genuinely friendly and kind (I.e. like most Greek people). Avoid this place!

We were a party of 7, and each ordered something completely different. We shared 'bites' of what we were eating (don't worry, we were family) and every person thought their own - and others - was/were delicious. A wonderful, park-front location with the business of the whole city passing by.

My sister and I stopped here for an iced coffee and were amazed at how creamy the foam is. We asked for just a little sugar and it was just right. Free, fast WiFi made the visit even more perfect.

I'll never know why but the waitress was the most angry and aggressive person I dealt with in corfu. She was shouting and slammed our change on the table. She treated others as badly so it wasn't a mistake we made.

The drinks and atmosphere were standard but the service makes this one a place to avoid.

The coffee comes from a filter holder and so the Espresso is tasting great. The tables outside on the shopping street is wonderfull to relax and enjoy the busy life in Corfu. Also the fresh orange juice looked delicious and invites to stay. Moderate prices for good quality.
