The hand written menu caught our eye, as did the tiny restaurant and the happy diners. We went the next night, and had brandade de morue - a new and delightful experience, beignets de legume- enormous but delicious plateful, magret de canard and octopus stew. This place is not to be missed...maybe share a starter!

Excellent food all round from number 8's soft and fluffy entree ( lightly battered garden vegetables ) to number 13's pan fried sardines in rosemary and garlic ( surprisingly light ). I added the dessert just to taste the home made offering of a cheese cake and also wasn't disappointed with a light and flavoursome finish to the meal. Opens... More

Awesome. Yes the lady who is front of house can appear unfriendly. But this place is amazing. Its not bling. But take your blinkers off and savour the unusual home made food. It took six years to finally go there but it was worth every mouthwatering mouthfull. Its eccentric. But its worth it!!!!

We took the advice of previous comments and it was really great, you should reserve in advance to guarantee a place since it is a small restaurant, I would prefer to eat there at lunch time and watch out cuisine closes early for lunch at 13:30 as most of the good places : )..Great food..go for it!

Went twice on our holiday. The first time was very good. Good food good service. Couldn't fault it. The second time, not so good. It was much busier. Our order was taken promptly but 2 couples who came in after us had their starters and mains before we had our starter. Waited 30 minutes between finishing the starter and getting... More

You could easily miss this little gem of a place but we were so glad we found it. The food is lovingly prepared and absolutely delicious. We enjoyed the food so much that we ate here on a few occasions during a 2 week stay in Calvi. The menu list is not too extensive but what they do is prepare... More

We found this restaurant quite soon after our arrival in Calvi - but sadly allowed ourselves to be put off by the lack of diners every time we walked past. On our final evening we felt sorry for them and decided to put our faith in the Tripadvisor sticker in the window... What a great meal we had! And what... More

Don't let the outside appearance of this restaurant put you off. With no outside seating and no fancy illuminations, let the food do the talking. Every dish we ordered could not be faulted. Octopus salad starter, lamb main and duck main courses (both served on sizzling platters) and desserts of ice cream with hot chocolate sauce and a local cheese... More

It was a disappointment, sadly. We picked it carefully, after reading a good few reviews of restaurants in Calvi. This was our only chance to eat out and we really wanted it to be special. Looking at the sparse menu, we said "YAY!" Everything looked wonderful and the small room ambience was perfect. We ordered (3 of us) sardines, anchovies... More
