Atmospheric location with charming decor, on-street tables and friendly service. Food is tasty, drawing on classic Corsican ingredients and is a higher quality than your average tourist fare. However, some dishes are overpriced, especially the starters (e.g. €19 for 2.5 scallops in a bowl of pea purée). Some dishes are also "filled-in" with generic salads.

A very nice fish restaurant with a great sea theme. Relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Enjoyed our night there, didn't get a chance to return and try something different though. Will do when we return!

Excellent food, great atmosphere, good wines and very friendly owner. I didn't go to dinner here the next day just because it was too packed! I will go back for sure if I ever go back to Calvi.

My wife with Trip Advisor help found the cozy local family owned place! The food is fantastic ! We had a great John Dory fish topped with pesto and the best eggplant my wife has ever had(this says a lot as she loves eggplant). I had the risotto saffron, topped with local prawns! Service by the owner. It simply does... More

We went back here for 2 nights as it was so good! We had the most delicious fish couscous, cod in sauce, lobster pasta and we are absolutely fish mad! Couldn't recommend this more!

Excellent meal enjoyed 3 courses & our plates were clean after each one. Service was very welcoming & nice atmosphere. Plenty of good food. The best meal we've eaten in Calvi. Would go back again, very highly recommended. Both Gambas risotto & lamb dish were very tasty main courses.

We visited the restaurant last night and had and excellent meal. The staff were friendly and courteous. When I asked to change tables due to the close proximity of chain smokers the manager obliged and we ended up wit the best table in the restaurant! Food was excellent, not the cheapest restaurant but well worth it!

Don't miss this restaurant. We went twice and had a lovely meal both times. They must have a really good chef. Lots of fish on the menu and 7 hour cooked lamb which we will try on our next visit. Service was good but you are not rushed.
