This place is a real delight, right at the end of the marina. We were looked after by a lovely lady, who was passionate about Corsican food. Everything is from the island, down to the Corsica Cola (delicious by the way). The menu has some smaller dishes served in cast iron dishes and these absolutely overflowed with flavour. Wow.

Nice restaurant by the port, efficient service but not friendly. It's known for pork chaurcuterie and other pork dishes. I had the 21.50E 3 course menu. The entree was charcuterie which was good and generous. The special Corse cheese Frittata was just scrambled egg with cheese and mint - tasty but was no frittata - I could easily make at... More

Average cured meat, poor beef, friendly staff, decent wine. Good location to see port traffic during the summer

We came to Bonifacio during the off-season, with most places closed. This restaurant was recommended and the food is good and authentic but over-priced and service is quite unfriendly. I asked some advice and the waiter looked at me as if I came from the moon. Then we asked for Limoncello (which is on the menu) and he said: 'we... More

Best lamb, beef and pork brochettes cooked on a fire grill and served with potatoes and a crisp salad, local wine was good and service is pleasant. They even understood our bad French. Lovely night but a bit expensive. Great ambience.

We found the restaurant on arrival in town thanks to tripadvisor comments. Great ambience, very friendly service ( which isn't for granted here in Corsica) and good value for money. The card offers you a wide variety of Corsican specialties, my tip: if you can't decide which, simply come back again. We did 3 times in 3 days we were... More

I think the location on the busy waterfront helps to keep this place busy with tourists, but I think quite a few locals eat here also. Traditional Corsican fare, wild boar, mixed meat grill, Aubergine Bonifaccio (do not miss) and good Corsican wines. Lively atmosphere. Enjoyable experience. We ate here twice!

After eating in various restaurants in Calvi, Porto-Vecchio and Bastia I was missing that real Corsican spirit we met in the mountain bergeries walking GR20. Finally found it in Kissing Pigs. Wild boar meat, chestnuts, charcuterie and good local wine connected together in simple, yet very tasty dishes. Since restaurant is very crowded in the evenings, remember to book a... More

As we walked along the quay, we went pass the kissing pigs, we were looking for authentic Corsican food. We didn't bother to book as all other restaurants said that there was no problem, so when dinner time came, we thought that we can just walk in. Well, we were wrong, the place was packed and we were told to... More

The food in Kissing Pigs is absolutely delicious! There was a big group of us (16 persons) and we found it very hard to book into restaurants although kissing pigs got us booked in, in the afternoon and sat us at our table within minutes of our allocated time! Thinking the meat selection would mainly be pig, I couldn't have... More
