Beautiful meal in Ile Rousse

We enjoyed a lovely amuse-bouche, a generous helping of perfectly-cooked coquilles-st-jacques, and two superb main courses to follow; one of delicious cod and the other a tender rack of lamb. The combination of very high quality ingredients with generous servings was unusual. We plan to return.

This restaurant had been recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. It is a family affair with the father in the kitchen and at least one daughter helping to wait tables. The food was excellent and they have very good list of Corsican wines. If we were to be back in Ile Rousse, this would be a restaurant we would... More

We chose this restaurant for our first evening meal in I'lle Rousse after reading the favourable reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The food was well presented and cooked to perfection. We both had the langoustine starter which was a little pricey for what we got but there are no complaints about the taste and flavour of what...

I had read the reviews and wanted to go here for my first meal in Corsica however the restraunt does not seem to open on a Sunday or Monday however Tuesday evening it was open and was well worth the wait. The menu is a good mix of seafood and meat. They also have menus in English and the waitress... More

Incredible meal! The starter was a tuna salad with cream that was out of this world! My wife had the local fish and I had a scallop dinner that was delicate and mouth watering. The finish was a chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream that was the best either of us had ever tasted. Well definitely return!

We were in Ile Rousse for 9 days on a family holiday. We ate here twice with my grandchildren, ages 9 and 13! The food was exceptional, and the service was wonderful...They did everything to please the children. The food was fantastic, better than any meal that we had in Paris!

Bistrot de la Place is one of the best restaurants we visited while staying near Ile Rousse. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented. The wine recommendation was perfect. I ordered the steak, which when it came was the biggest plate of food I have ever seen. It was accompanied by five different roasted vegetables which were all locally... More
