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

Corsica has many amazing qualities that are unparalled around The Med: great beaches, rugid landscapes (mountains and forests that you'd usually have to parachute into an American or a Russian wilderness to find), blue skies, cool sea and mountain breezes. It has genuine charm and hospitality. But great restaurants aren't something found in abundance here. You need to go South... More

Undoubtedly the worst meal of our holiday and one of the worst meals I have had over many years of visiting Corsica. The location in the old citadel of Calvi with an impressive view over the port is the sole redeeming feature of this place. We booked a table on the terrace (with the view) in advance and had high...

We had been staying at an apartment overlooking this restaurant for a week and noticed that it was busy every night despite being up high in the Citadelle. Also the staff were all very friendly, chatting to us as we passed by. We decided to book the Prime table in the corner of the Terrace overlooking the sea for our... More
