“Pretty venue but the food is nothing special”

We made a reservation by phone. On arrival, however, they had lost the reservation. Nevertheless; we were seated downstairs in a vaulted cellar which was quite charming. The menu was limited which is not always a problem, but the main course was the choice of one roast meat and one vegetable dish... read more

Chez Edgard came highly recommended from the locals and they had filled the place chock-a-block on the evening we visited. Reserve! Very early in the season so we were the only tourists. The Ferme-Auberge is picturesque in this one-street town and the location (perched above the valley in Lavatoggio) alone is worth a visit. If farm-to-table is charming in highly-industrial... More

Great food, service and ambience. Fantastic view across to an ancient hilltop village. A great restaurant in such a tiny village

Our neighbours in Sain Abbroggio told us about this place so we reserved (a must) and went the next night. Sorry to say but the concept is nice but the food dosn't follow. The meat is only ready to eat around 9p.m and before that time they cut off the outside layer to serve you. The soup which everyone raves... More

Fixed menu with your choice of meat and you better be a meat eater and you better be hungry. 35 euro prix fix. Five courses, soup is marrow and ham rich, fabulous but go slow. Second course is probably the best quiche you will ever have in your life fresh from the oven. Third is choice of meats, best were... More

Chez Edgard is the place to go if you want a taste of a full, 5 course Corsican Dinner. The restaurant is nested on the outside of the small Balagne village of Lavatoggio and dinner is on the patio of an old farmhouse. This is a SET MENU restaurant, with a hearty Corsican soup, followed by a 'tourte', then you... More
