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

Best place in town. Great service and excellent food and the kids 8y and 11y) loved it. It might one of the more expensive restaurants in town but compare to the quality, taste and service it's a bargain.

Now not everyone will be interested in tete de veau , which literally translates into Head of Veal. Its the whole head deboned , rolled up and poached for hours ( I think) Its a traditional French dish that you won't find everywhere , I think originally it might have been a poor mans dish , there is quite a...

We struggled to choose from an excellent menu. The tartare of tuna and squid starters were both really good, following s superb vinaigrette of said and lobster bisque "amuse Bouche". We followed with delicious veal kidneys in morrillle sauce and caramelised Jarrett of pork (a sort of improved "eisbein". Desserts were equally good, raspberry granita and coulis of strawberries with... More

We made reservations for Easter mid day because they were full on Saturday evening. So reserve ahead! We had a lovely experience, from the service to the wine and the food. For this occasion there was no fixed menu, but many specials in addition to the regular dinner menu. It was quite difficult to decide, many fish and seafood options... More

We found the service to be average. One server dealing with an almost full restaurant and in any event wasn't particularly personable. Had to wait quite some time before being given menus. We're asked if we would like wine and red or white. We then expected to be given a wine list but rather obscurely were brought a bottle that... More

We booked based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. The mother and daughter team were professional, friendly and well-versed in the wine selection. The food was excellent and nicely presented. Indoor dining only, no patio but the room is quaint and airy. Well worth a visit!
