My fiancé and I had the opportunity to visit this restaurant and I cannot describe with words how marvelous this experience was. Before going forward with this review, I just want to warn you that the restaurant is located far from the city, don't let the location and rustic look scare you....believe me you will not regret it! As soon as we parked, we got welcomed by this sweet and beautiful Labrador. We are big dog lovers so this was the first sign that the night was going to be wonderful. Once we entered into the restaurant, we were given a charming and romantic corner overlooking the mountains. Our waiter, who is the owner's son explained to us the menu and showed up with two refreshing cups of rose and appetizer ( on the house by the way). We ordered the Corsican charcutery, the lamb, and the Corsican cheese for dessert. Every meal we ordered was full of flavor. To make this night even more special, the Corsican singers were performing and I could not believe how talented these individuals were. The music, the food, the service were top notch. When we asked for the bill, our waiter told us " you cannot leave until you finished this Corsican liquor"( on the house too!!!). He brought us the two little glasses of liquor and we stayed another 20 minutes. Once we finished our drinks, he brought the bill. We left the place feeling so happy and satisfied that I promised myself to take the time to write a review. Believe me, you won't regret it and maybe you will end up thanking me for writing this review.
Go and enjoy the beautiful Corsica!

This is a restaurant that not only has great great traditional food with a creative twist, made well, served with big smile, but a place where you go to spend the eveninng. The setting is very unusual and very rustic and so so beautiful for that. My table was under a fig tree and I could see the sun setting behind the mountain. The feeling of the place is very cozy and almost as if you were visiting a family that has a farm.... FINALLY in corsica I got a proper vegan meal. There was live music the whole night --- I had other plans for that night but just could not leave. What a place -- truly truly special... for people with good taste that is

We had anticipated a standard restaurant but we were in for a very pleasant surprise. The location is truly rural and very authentic providing you don't mind a few flies. The welcoming and ambiance is great and matched by the quality of the corsican cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

Thank you

We didn't know what to expect. We found this trough tripadv. and went just to see if it would be so nice that everyone says.

The road was small, no good signs. Even the place looked closed. Really small dirty little "cowhouse".

But we went in and im so happy that we did!! OMG what a place, atmosphere and especially the food was incredible!! ❤ We just fell in love with the place, food and stuff. One the best culinaristic-experiences ever!! Thank you

We spent a great evening at U Cantonu. The view as well as the food were outstanding. It was truly a very high quality restaurant. A bit difficult to find and a poor street but absolutely worth it. One small negative taste was that we had the feeling of pressure that it is a "must" to take entree, main course and desert. We did not like this feeling as a guest but it could also have been only one waiter that tried to push. Anyway it is too big portions to take all three courses. Prices are relatively high but the quality of food are justifying them.
