Still à bit of effort needed

Everything is perfect but... The lamb. Be cautious on selecting the lamb dished as the meat could rather poor. The owner is in love with Corsican pigs (and it is great) but seems to pay very limited attention to the quality if his lamb (two of us where not able to eat half of our "poelon")

Always a minefield eating in tourist spots, especially around marinas, but if you love meat, this is a very good choice. I had a mixed grill, which was substantial and high quality. My son thought his steak hache was the best of the holiday and my wife loved her duck and foie gras salad. My daughter found her sausage too... More

Very special place with a nice atmosphere. However, the main course in the menus (lamb and porc) were extremely fat! Served in a small very hot pan and floating in fat! Too rustic and fat for me...

Beautiful lamb dishes, great staff, superb wines. Sitting out on the deck, with a view straight into the kitchen was terrific. The chef was a real character and it was so entertaining watching him cook the dishes - what a master!

This place caught our eye because of how "old school" and authentic it looked from the outside. Once inside it indeed had plenty of atmosphere and was bustling with jovial diners having good times in several languages. We had a cozy table in the rear of the main dining room with bookshelves, old bottles of wine and artisanal knick-knacks lining... More

All food is sourced locally and cooked before your eyes. Quite small and two-thirds of it is actually a cave, with even the seats cut out of the rock around the outside wall. Food excellent, going from 9Euro (sizable omlette), through a set menu, to plat du jour. Good staff and wide chose of wines - beer also available (Pietra,... More

Right on Bonifacio harbour quayside intimate atmosphere and good value for money menu of the day at 22 Euros without wine. The first course pate de foie was excellent and the lamb and pork dishes were superb. The only black mark was that I asked the waiter for an ordinary Corsican red wine and he chose one of the most...
