Delightful Meal in Peri

It's worth noting that there are not many options in Peri. It's a small town in rural Corsica, so you take what you can get. However, Chez Seraphin stood out as excellent. The food was relatively simple - a basic salad, lamb, roasted potatoes, and cheese - but good. The potatoes stood out in... read more

Lovely owner and amazing food with local products. You have to book in advance as it is really busy during the summer and ask for a table on the lovely terrace.

After seeing Yotam Ottolenghi's visit to this restaurant we were very keen to try it on our trip to Corsica. We were certainly not disappointed. Rustic food served with a smile. Excellent quality and excellent value 50 euros including wine. It is a fixed price and fairly fixed menu but they did go out of their way to accommodate the... More

We had our summer house in Mezzavia, which is aprox 30 mins away from Peri, but it was totally worth it looking for it. The town is set in the middle of the mountain which makes the view outstanding. Booking in advance is needed, so if you can ask for a terrace table, so if you get there before the... More

Having watched Yotam Ottolenghi's Corsican adventure, we decided, for my birthday, to eat at Chez Seraphin - the restaurant where he cooked typical Corsican food with owner. We were not disappointed. It is in the heart of the Maquis and so many of the ingredients for her recipes are right there on the doorstep. Give yourselves a good 3 to... More

A perfect place for an always wonderful meal, delicious "Beignets de courgettes", fantastic lamb, excellent corsican soup. I love this place, both for lunch and diner. And the village worse the visit, you might continue the road up to Bocognano.

We did not expect this when we decided to have dinner at Chez Seraphin. First it was the drive. There is a narrow, two lane, serpentine road climbing up the mountain for several kilometers leading to the village of Peri. The restaurant has a bucolic location, high on a terrace with beautiful vista overseeing the Corsican mountains. The restaurant itself... More

No website, not a single reference (well this is the first one) on English speaking internet... Seraphin is probably one of the best kept secrets of Corsica. Well-known to the locals in Ajaccio, Seraphin offers not only good food but also a great experience. Lost in a tiny village 30 min drive fomr Ajaccio, the terrace outside offers a great... More
