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

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

Superb view, reasonable service, starters are quite dear which initially made us walk past when glancing at the menu but mains are generous and the house wine was very reasonable. The fish soup was excellent to start, my steak was a sensational size and very good but the sauce was quite thin and there wasn't enough. The John Dory with... More

Well worth the walk up to the top of the Citadel. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous food and magnificent views, great service by excellent cheerful staff. Book a table with a view by the wall for a truly memorable evening. Fantastic Views & the BEST tarte tatin in the world - an amazing place!

There is no shortage of good restaurants in Calvi, but this is one of the best. Food is served on a terrace overlooking the harbour,which is a great plus, but it is worth a visit on it's own merit as a restaurant with very decent food, a good wine list,and excellent service
