Worth the walk

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!

The restaurant, location, owners, service, the creative set menu (I avoid set menus) and the wines surprised us all very positively. Even so the bill. All where performed with extra finess. Although we were there in the low season the restaurant where full of guests (we might have been the only tourists). So if you are in Calvi do not... More

We were hoping to see the sunset but the setting on the terrace is not pretty - the view is blocked by a building site and some houses and only a small bit of sea is visible. The menu is interesting and the food good, beautifully presented. Our waitress was lacking a personality or any charm (or waitressing ability), but... More

We were searching for something special to take our chef and crew to dinner and this proved to be just that. We were not expecting the professionalism and expertise! Not only did we 'eat with our eyes' but the food was flavoursome and amazing to eat. I would recommend this restaurant to one and all!

We went here once for an evening meal as we had read great reviews. We chose from the 25 Euro menu and the food was very nice, I had foam on my fish, which I have never been too keen on, but it tasted very good and the service was very friendly. Each meal had really great flavours. It is... More
