“Best place in town for Microwave mussels and arrogant service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We just came back from lunch at Nautic and are still nauseous from the food. The mussels were extremely small in big shell because they were cooked twice.
Our food was served 1 minute after ordering which is approx the microwave time. My son had Margerita pizza from a new recipe(pesto) which was persil according to the waiter.
One tip to the owner: if you serve this kind of 'food': do the decent thing and choose a job you like. Leave the restaurant business to the professionals. On the positive side: good rating for tourist trap of the month.

“Great location, pity about the music and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

we tried le natica given its location. There was plenty if selections and we choose modules and lamb. No starters to choose from. The dishes came very quickly and tasted fine but our plates were never cleared, nor were we asked if we wanted anything

“Nausea”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

If you like glasses covered in lipstick and food with more than one hair in a serving this hole is for you (sorry for the anger). Further, when you bring the problems to the attention to the manager (tough because the waiter is avoiding you by now) their main concern is what your problem might be since they gave you a new portion that looked remarkably like the last (that you never asked for). After you start worrying that they may have spit in it as there was never an apology but an overriding and uncomfortably obvious hostility you need to raise your voice to actually convince them that you are not paying for your "food" because you no longer have an appetite to eat anything. Regardless they are happy to slap a bill down on the table for your wife's dinner (which she could not eat either by now) as well as the wine. Well enough but really not the sign of a place that gives a @$@#. This is an amazingly placed scenic spot that clearly preys on tourists and feels no need to listen to any complaints about their substandard performance. |The health authorities and the city might wish to examine this establishment with some scrutiny.

“Lunch in the sun by the harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

What's not to like? The harbour area is full of bustle and Le Nautic is well staffed to cope with the large influx of lunch time clients. The menu caters for all tastes - I had a pasta dish whilst my husband enjoyed mussels in a cream sauce - the portion sizes would satisfly the most hungry. The service was friendly and efficient but, despite the crowds, we didn't feel we were being hurried. The setting, by the harbour's edge, looking over the Bay of Calvi to the mountains, is not to be rushed.
