We had an amazing meal and experience here. The food was superb and the service the same. From the time we walked in the front door, taking in the cozy ambiance to the time we were served our meal, we were in awe. Best of the best! Don't miss out when in Corsica. Try the house special with EVERYTHING on... More

Fun restaurant with woodfired grill, serving grilled beef, pork, veal, chicken, kebabs, sausage... Superb value, generous portions. Pavé du boeuf cooked to perfection. Great charcuterie plates. If you like meat, this is the place to be. Nice buzzy terrasse, but would recommend sitting indoors to witness the open fire grill in operation!

We ate here twice. Most of the restaurants in Corte have italian food, but here you can get something else. The first time we sat on the covered heated part, but it was cold so 2 days later we mailes to reserve a table inside. We got a confirmation, but when we came, there was no free table inside, it's...

I had the same experience described by PAREMO. Cigarette smoke fills this restaurant. The out door verandah was fully enclosed and thick with smoke which permeated throughout the "non-smoking" indoor parts of the restaurant including bathroom and apparently the kitchen. I did not enjoy my dining experience for this reason and will not be back unless management changes its policy... More

Food here might have been of reasonable quality, but who could taste or enjoy it constantly shrouded by cigarette smoke? Nowhere to escape it. If you value your health and quality of dining experience then I'm afraid this place cannot be recommended. Totally unenlightened... Menu was satisfactory, service perfunctory.

This restaurant was the highlight of our rainy stay in Corte. The place is charming, the food is excellent, and the service is perfect. A must do when visiting Corsica!

Dined here last night with a group . Food and service were both good . Servings are huge - especially salads and desserts . We had the mixed grilled meat skewers , veal with mushrooms and house special hamburger - all I would recommend except perhaps the veal which was a bit grisly but the mushroom sauce was delicious ....

We originally decided on this restaurant as we fancied trying the plateau gourmande. Despite visiting twice the other dishes on the menu were so tempting we didn't actually get round to trying this! On both nights the service was excellent. The two waiters worked non-stop but never stopped smiling. On our second visit we could see into the restaurant and... More

Sorry to say this but this restaurant does not deserve it's high rating. The setting is quite plain and the tables crowded, exposing the customers to cigarette smoke from neighbouring tables. As for the food it was OK for the brochette de canard but the lamb was just two big bones with lots of fat and tiny amount of meat... More
