A small restaurant where we ate lunch and found it hard to fault the cooking and often difficult task of filleting a delicious lemon sole! The shared lobster as entree was delicious. My mother had a very delicately cooked lemon sole, and I ate one of the best fish tagine I've tasted. Not too spicy, masses of well cooked fish--a... More

My husband and I ate at Aux Bons Amis at 7:30PM on a weekday, which is early for dinner. However, the two entree specials listed on the menu that my husband ordered were already sold out. We each ordered main courses of fish and both were slightly overcooked and nothing special. We would not return to this restaurant.

I found all little restaurants in Calvi not accepting any credit/debit cards; only cash; and even more expensive than the restaurants around the harbour. Not welcoming at all; so waht if the food is good!

We went to this restaurant three times in the week we were in Calvi. The staff were welcoming; the food and wine was delicious. And it was very good value.

There are very many restaurants in Calvi. The problem is that there are not enough chefs to staff them all. The restaurants around the harbour are universally awful (and expensive). Aux Bons Amis is the exception. Great food and service at a reasonable price. Don't even think about going anywhere else

Cheap food, 19euro for 3 course meal. Real french food! We went to this resturant twice, when we visit Corsica.

when the waiter does not know anything about (very small wineglasses and a wine to recommend. with the meal we should have left but we stayed. Food is not but nothing to write home about but price /performance is not correct. They are not worth their Michelin listing.
