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.

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. When I went inside, a saw a roaring fire in... More
