Excellent food and service

One of the best restaurant we had in corsica; excellent food, refined for an amazing quality price ratio. I would recommend the 3 course menu.

This restaurant was near the villa we rented which diverted us from walking into Calvi a couple of evenings. It was definitely worth it. Very busy & charming service. The €21.90 set menu was the business. Very tasty tuna & aubergine salad starter followed by poisson du marché & a pudding to finish. The slightly more expensive set menu's St... More

Fabulous restaurant with romantic views. Be certain to make a reservation! After discovering U Fanale we ate there every single day: tasting a variety of different dishes. Delicious uniquely prepared cuisine.

Tasty food. Good service. Waiter spoke great English. Try and book a table outside as it's warm inside.

We walked about 20 minutes to reach this place in early evening. The food is great and we enjoyed the night there.

We decided to have a dinner here during our stay in Calvi - because of the ratings we saw on Tripadvisor. Did not regret it for a second! Everything was perfect - they have two menus (one cheaper, one more expensive, but both worth the money) to chose from. The waitress was very helpful and even chose wine for us... More

This is a pleasant restaurant outside downtown Calvi. Reservation for dinner is recommended. I really liked beautifully presented food. Starters were quite good. Main course were good, but not exceptional. My shrimp were overcooked and my sons fish tasted a little off. We had the same fish elsewhere and it tasted fine. Deserts were just OK, fruit didn't taste fresh.... More

The food was beautiful, one of the best meals we have enjoyed as a family in a long time and certainly the loveliest meal in Corsica. Service was friendly and long suffering of our poor French. OK, not the best views, but a cool location on a hot day and you can't eat views! There are plenty of restaurants with... More

A gentle stroll from town, although there is ample parking. The menu is interesting and the dishes we tasted were delicious. All plates are presented beautifully so it was a treat for our eyes too as the restaurant was busy - albeit with many like us without reservations. It helps to be pre-season!
