Well located in the heart of the old city. Very popular as it was quite busy for the month of may. The french fries were super, the meat was good but not great. The fish would gave been a better option.

La Vieille Cave is a nice restaurant with a lovely terrace. The interior is really cosy, but since it was such a beautiful summer evening when we visited, we preferred sitting outside. We started our meal with the cocktail of the day: a cucumber cooler....More

This a good restaurant and very popular. It is well worth a visit. The prix-fixe menu offers particularly good value. The Corsican dishes are excellent and so are the fish dishes. The tiramisu may be the best in the world.
