On the small rue des Zephyrs, just behind the touristy Quai des Martyrs de la Liberation, is the totally interesting Petite Marie. Run by a husband and wife couple, named after their granddaughter and featuring several signs of grand-parental pride (something with which we can easily identify), this small restaurant attracts a diverse clientele with an abiding interest in langoustines. We dined there on Thursday Oct. 4, 2012, were the only English speakers present, and had a great time. My plate was heaped to overflowing with grilled and herbed langoustines; Our interractions with the owners and other patrons was very positive. A highlight of our time in Bastia! Go there.
