Romantic dinner

We got a table with sea view and the view was very peaceful and great. Very tasty food.we got the fix menu with a starter, main dish and a dessert and it is very worthy for how much it costs. Enjoy!

A word of warning, this restaurant is in the old citadel and is quite a pull for elderly or people with a mobility issue. The views are good over Calvi bay, but the restaurant is sat between two buildings and if you are sat towards the back, then this restricts the vision. The food was wholesome Corsican fare and quite... More

The views from the lower terrace are fabulous! Try to get a table in front. It's the kind of restaurant where you would want to linger for hours, and I don't get the feeling that they'd mind. We felt lucky to have stumbled across this restaurant while we were trying to find Christopher Columbus' birthplace and asked to reserve for... More

Booked for 10 persons for a 50th celebration. Lovely location in Citadel views over bay. Unfortunately could not book terrace as appeared to be reserved for VIPs. Many of us had the beef course which was cooked perfectly however the cuts were full of gristle and difficult to cut and eat the meat. The accompanying sauces were good. Wine was... More

This restaurant is in an absolutely perfect location. All of the tables are set among the cobbled streets in a beautiful location but I suggest that you make a reservation for a sea view - the view is truly magical. Despite being rushed off their feet, the staff are very professional and friendly with a good knowledge of the menu.... More

We nearly didn't make it to the Citadel in Calvi but so glad we did. It took us a while to find the restaurant and we assumed we would be sitting in the courtyard, but the waiter took us down some steps to the most amazing terrace with wonderful views of the bay. The food was very good and good... More

Situated up in the citadel overlooked Calvi, this was a bit of a trek up here - at night (evenings in September are drawing in) the area is poorly lit so be careful walking over the cobbled areas on your way back down to the town. We didn't book a table, but being early diners were able to sit at... More

With some friends we set for a drink and snacks and we got the most horrible service. Despite we where guests, we where not allowed to take photos from the view as we where supposatly disturbing the guests... Waiters where shouting to place orders and ask for something but this was apparently not bothering anyone... I do not understand why... More

Ate here on the third and last night of our stay. The owner and his partner were both lovely and very friendly, the younger server who was looking after the terrace with the views wasn't quite so good-pleasant but lacked the warmth of the other two. We went for the set menu the first night and loved the potato frittata... More
