Fantastic

this was our top vote for best restaurant on the tour. Don't miss this and reservations are a must. You will probably want to sit outside - we did - bring a layer just incase. Service was great, food great. Zero complaints.

Ok so the meals are cheap and there is lots of food, but I really don't see why people rate it so highly. The menu is limited to a few barbecued items, omlettes and grilled potatoes. There was only one poor waiter fot lots of people so the service was slow. A disappointment.

We went in this restaurant the last day of our holiday in Corse. We asked for the tipical dish called "le plateau gourmand " and it was amazing! It was composed by an omelette with brocciu and mint, sausages and salumi, cheeses and "figatellu". The owner was incredible because he was the only person who was taking orders, preparing dishes...

During our trip around Corsica we had dinner at La Riviere des Vins. We selected this restaurant because of the many exremly postive reviews. Unfortunately we can not agree with this excellent feedback. The food is very simple, fatty and not seasoned. The one man waiter was extremly stressed. We can not recommend this restaurant.

The service is very slow. The house-speciality plate is plain and boring, with an omelette you can make at home, supermarket-like sausages, tired cheese and wilted fruits-of-the-season. Meat was ordered medium rare but received almost well done and quite tasteless. Accompanied by an a tomato salad in simple balsamico and dry potatoes. If this is Corte's #1 restaurant, then Corte...

The restaurant is located on a side, pedestrian only street and has an outdoor dining terrace and some indoor space as well. I was a little worried when I saw photographs on the menu but we ordered brochettes of duck and veal chops as well as aperitifs, appetizers, and desserts.

If you're looking for typical Corsican charcuterie, cheese and wine in a very nice place, well-served and at right price, this is the best place you can find in the lovely Corte. Close to the centre of Corte, in a beautiful position, the atmosphere's familiar: fireplace indoor and gentle waiters make you feel relaxed; tasteful decor and small places in-... More

We went to this restaurant based on the good reviews on trip advisor. It started out OK, but service was quite slow (only one waiter for the whole restaurant). My friend ordered a grilled piece of meat, but when it finnally came (I guess he had forgotten it on the grill - the same waiter was also doing the grill)... More

The young proprietor could have filled this restaurant three times over with the people he had to turn away on the evening we we there. This is a tiny establishment well patronized by the local student population. The menu is not extensive and focuses on meat grilled on an open wood fire, supported by Corsican salads and charcuterie.
