We dined here having checked Trip. We were not disappointed. This epitomises the very best of Corsican cuisine. It was delicious and service very friendly. It is much better value too than the coastal regions. If you want to try local specialities, this is a very good place to try them.

They have a few set meals for less than Euro 20 that will be guarantee to fill you up. Service is efficient and professional. It is on a narrow street set on a slope that may take a while to find as there are many restaurants clustered around it.

Set in the town of Corte, we sat outdoor. The restaurant is run by two young men that know what they're doing. It's busy with students, many coming and going and many having a meal. Very efficient and big portions and surprisingly good. The quality of the meat was excellent, it's their speciality. Desert was very good. Best meal we... More

Nice little Restaurant, the card looked very promissing and simple with a lot of local specialties. Unfortunately the kitchen execution did not fulfill our expectations, with the main ingredient of all dishes being cooking oil. Nevertheless recommended for a stop over. Service was good and prices too!

The omelette was disappointing - flat not fluffy and a little rubbery - and the veal cutlet was overcooked and dry. The roast potatoes were also overcooked. Each dish was accompanied by lettuce and tomato. Overall presentation was mediocre.

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.

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.
