Fantastic food and great service

Went to the Bistrot as it was already getting a high rating on trip advisor. It was even better than expected. Black Angus beef was amazing and the cod equally good. Service was friendly and efficient. Great evening with fabulous food.

We booked a table for 4. All the dishes were very well presented. I asked for cuttlefish, my wife for a black Angus steak. Both were left unfinished. Cuttlefish was unchewable and steak that was supposed to be of very high quality was actually not. Other two friends of us who had lamb and shrimps did not find any thing... More

Such a wonderful experience I don't know where to start. Firstly they have French wine, rather than simply Corsican. And it is really good value with lovely aged claret for 40euros. The service was really good, really lovely friendly and attentive staff. The food was really good - the meat and veg, the special of the day, was impeccable. I... More

A splendid meal in the square of L'ile Rousse offered Michelin standards of cooking in a super ambiance. A special treat. The locally caught fish was a particular treat.

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!
