A great place to eat, with a marvelous outside patio and an ocean view is Restaurant L’Escale in ILe Rousse. The black olives are to die for—dusted with those fabulous local herbs. Lunch here is not cheap, but worth every Euro. We had oysters, mussels, a local fish, pasta with prawns, plus a bottle of wine for a little over... More

We ate here twice during our stay. The food is great. It gets busy but the service doesn't seem to be affected in any way.

Food was so good we ate there twice. It's a bit more expensive than other restaurants. Staff was very nice. Make a reservation for a table next to the window.

We were booked to hear a concert in the Church and didn't fancy the idea of eating and then facing the long climb up to the citadel. This is just behind the church and although in a pretty spot looked just run of the mill. However we booked and what a surprise... Amazing and varied menu served with style. Weren't... More

We specifically wanted some corsican moules before leaving, found just the ticket in this place. It wasn't our first choice as it looked touristy and pretentious but the food was great and really big portions too (surprising in a place like this). The service was very snobby and aloof so I wouldn't go there to be dazzled by welcoming smiles,... More

Fantastic food, seafood in a great ambiance. Nice restaurant well decorated - modern style. Great service ! We enjoyed the sea food pasta, linguinis full of mussells, gambas, (shrimps) and langoustines. Good selection of wine. Plates are full and they offer great choice of deserts. Certainly one of the best restaurant we have tested on our tour of Corsica.
