On the corner of a building on the main pedestrian street in Calvi town, this restaurant has outside tables in a side alley that isolate you form the street, but still provide the ambiance. Downside is that conversation can be difficult because of noise from extract fans above head level. We ate a la carte on this occasion, not from... More

An unassuming restaurant with an excellent choice of menu fixe or a la carte. Skate with all the trimmings including the elusive "foam" finish was outstanding as was my wife's cannelloni . Service was excellent as was the on street ambience and at a price of 63 euros including wine it is hard to beat. Definitely worth another visit.

Great fish soup and gambas. The service from our waiter was excellent, and the prices were reasonable. The place has a nice authentic ambiance, and we were able to get a table outside in the narrow street, where we could experience the atmosphere of Calvi

We went there for a good dinner and we had it! Very nice little side terrace. The food was fantastic. My boyfriend took the menu with Fish Carpaccio, Lamb and Pain Perdu. I took a Fresh Fish that the owner showed me on a plate. Everything was good. I really warmly recommend this place!!

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.
