Good choice but we were roasting in the courtyard

Charming courtyard garden and very good food, but we found the seating area to be absolutely stiflingly hot on the evening we visited: maybe go on a cooler night next time

Quirky courtyard full of a strange mixture of objects, this place was recommended to us. However my husbands escalope of veal was clearly burnt, admittedly he didn't complain but sad to think they thought it was acceptable. My veal in a sauce was ok.

Located just off the main square in St Florent this small restaurant has a quirky terrace at the back with memorabilia decorating the walls. The atmosphere is friendly & relaxed and our dinner was very enjoyable. The entree Saladi Francesa made a good start & comprised green salad with tomatoes, brocciu cheese and cured ham (15€). Be hungry as it's... More

Found in an advising guide as "very nice place, but food is not exceptionnal", we finally found this comment a little bit tough. If we had to summarize, we would rather chosse "Simple and authentic", being what you expect from a restaurant in Corsica. The staff is very friendly, especially with kids, the corsican fritters (mint and zucchini) are simply... More

Another really good recommendation! We went one evening but the courtyard was full so we booked for the next day. The Courtyard is really pretty, quiet and shady and, as other reviewers have said, is quite different to the seafront restaurants. Go hungry - the food is Corsican quality and quantity! We started with beignets, one of cheese and one... More

On our first visit we missed out on bagging a table in the eclectic courtyard - it was fully booked! However, we had such a delicious meal and the service was so attentive and friendly (unfortunately we found this not to be the norm in Corsica!) that we reserved a table for the weekend to sit in the back open...

We had wonderful meals out in saint florent based on recommendations and were excited to try l'arriere cour as it was also highly recommended. We were seated outside on a beautiful back patio which was unfortunately ruined by every table chain smoking around us throughout our meal. The good was quite good (especially the cheese donuts!) but it was hard... More

Simple menu with hearty, tasty and reasonably prices food. No fish on menu the night I went and the selection was limited but the special was very good.

We spent a lovely evening sitting in the courtyard of this restaurant eating and drinking traditional Corsican food and wine. We started with an aperitif of the well known Muscat from Patrimonio which was most enjoyable. Then we shared a plate of beignets of courgettes, followed by a pork in lentil stew and a tagine of chicken with raisons and... More
