A very fine meal

Despite the huge number of people having dinner there, the quality of food and service were very good. We ate in the small alley outside the restaurant and were positively impressed by the menu, which offers traditional Corsican dishes with a refined touch. Not cheap, but worth it!

Great little find. Fantastic atmosphere and nice place for lunch. Stumbled upon this place while walking around, far enough off the track to be relaxing while watching the world go by .

was a little wary of going to this as it was up an alley, but it was well worth it. Good menu, and good food.

I had little choice about where to eat as I arrived in Ajaccio on a Sunday when the majority of the restaurants are closed. Luckily da Mamma (recommended in my guide book) was only a hundred metres from my hotel. I opted for the Menu Corse - ham, cannelloni made with local cheese, roast goat and a choice of (possibly...

Traditional restaurant located in a small lane. Staff friendly and helpful. Raw ham and melon as a starter is very good. The restaurant has its own wine too. Dishes are good on the whole.

We used this restaurant 5 of the 6 days we were there. It has great atmosphere and the food is excellent. In July we dined alfresco because the temperature was just right at 7.30 p.m. and the outdoor is an enclosed space with no draughts from anywhere. The staff are delightful. Highly recommended.

We discovered this restaurant on our last night in Ajaccio, and wished that we'd found it sooner. We had an excellent meal with very friendly service.

Recommendation from one of the GR20 guides. Was spot on... Fresh fish, great service and a location that was amazing. Don't be put off by the entry or signs. Great al fresco dining and the restaurant is also cool inside!
