Average food, bad location, unreasonably prices

We have been "drafted" by a very persuasive lady that was "recruiting" customers" from the small commercial alley nearby. The restaurant has the tables placed on some of the alleys that form a maze in the old quarter of Calvi (see photos). Tables and chairs are adapted to the number of customers... read more

The little tables spread around a quaint courtyard make this place quite charming. The food was served courteously and promptly,and was quite tasty. A good choice in the pasta category, in a town with many choices...

Very friendly to begin with, once seated ordering/getting food took ages. One nice waiter seemed to be doing all the work. Lady very rude once we'd finished; stood over us whilst we finished our wine. Very intimidating and pushed our table out of the way to fit more diners in!

The restaurant is in a beautiful setting but DON'T be tempted to eat here. There is a lady who stands on the street outside the restaurant encouraging people to eat there. We felt completely conned by her - she was very friendly and attentive until she got is sat down and then went back to the street. We waited for... More

We had Dinner in this "Bistro" on our first night of our two weeks in Calvi and were pleasantly surprised; we decided to have the fix price menu with it's Corsican theme and although the choice was limited, it turned out to be very good value with every dish being nicely cooked, presented and extremely tasty. The strong Corsican cheeses... More

We were so disappointed with our experience here. Basic menu of pizza, pasta and steaks (which we knew when we chose the restaurant) - however the waiter waited until we had chosen our food and tried to place an order for steak before he told us that there was no steak at all available. The food we eventually settled on... More

Really cosy, we were sat under the arch which really added to the atmosphere. The waiter was very helpful and the food was so tasty we went back again before the end of our holiday. Prices reasonable and a good variety of choice on the menu.

Situated off the small main shopping street (in a discreet little 'courtyard') in this delightful coastal town is a smashing little restaurant. The cook delivered a very pleasing and more than adequate lunch. We asked for the 'plat du jour' option but could only finish two courses. Fresh salads, pasta and french bread, washed down with a refreshing bottle of... More
