Great dining experience but expensive!

They have a wonderful terrace with a great view of the Calvi Bay, service was very good and high class... The setting is romantic, food was in the level of the great chef of France. Everything was very good and taste excellent. The only thing is for Corsica, the prices are really high and the... read more

We looked for the pork under the rice, before we understood that the two thin slices of panchetta on the top was the pork.... Charging 75Euro for a three course menu menu you need to be really good, even if they have a star. At L´Oggi that´s unforunatelly not the case. Even if the dishes are well presented there are...

A friend and I dined at this restaurant last evening. The restaurant is very pretty and the staff most professional. The quality of the meal was,shockingly poor. We have been traveling around Corsica,for a month and dining in all the best establishments.i was shocked by how poor the quality of the beef and lamb were. Being an island,with so much... More

We had diner in L'Oggi a few days ago and we have been very disappointed. We were on the terrasse, but not having the sea view, and the restaurant is located just near the main road between Calvi and L'ile Rousse. We went for the "La Fraicheur" 4 dishes menu. The appetizers were ok but nothing exotic. First dish was... More

The terrace was fantastic and service helpful and attentive. We went for the tasting menu but there was no description of the dishes in the tasting menu and the waiter did not know what dishes were on it. We still decided to go for it and let ourselves be surprised but the dishes were uninspiring and forgettable with few exceptions.... More

We had weekday lunch here. My husband went a la carte and he had a excellent meal. I chose the lunch set menu and was disappointed. Although for eur 32 for 3 courses in a Michelin star resto, I didn't expect a eur 100 meal, I was disappointed with the plain ingredients used (chicken as a main??) and my starter... More

We dined here our last night in Calvin and our table of 4 all started with the asparagus which was beautifully presented and delicious. My husband and I shared the local fish for 2 which was also great. Or dining companions had the meat and the lobster which was sadly not the same quality. My friends lobster was a nit... More

We booked a table for 2 at Chez Charles, very excited at the thought of tasting Michelin star food. We were seated at a large round table for 6 people, pushed to the side of the room with our backs to the restaurant, facing a wall! We had no side plates and no wine glasses on the setting.We gave the... More

You can't go wrong. The freshest local products one can get. The fishes are caught early in the morning and delivered to the hotel on the spot. Very creative cuisine from a young and talented brigade. Very attentive service. Worth every Euro. Superior wine list. The perfect place for a special event.
