Nice restaurant with terrasse and view to the lightening tower. Great food, place nicely decorated, but very slow service. It was a busy night though and the restaurant was fully booked.

Very good and popular restaurant around 20 minutes pleasant walk along the sea from Calvi city center. Reservations are a must. The location inside and outside is very idyllic. Food is Corsican and French. Romantic atmosphere at night.

The people running it are very welcoming. If you arrive before 7, you will have to wait, but with drink in hand, hats the rush. The view was great and food better. They have a la crate as well as a fix price 3 course masterpiece. We will return.

Very good course proposals and red beet selections. Very fast service and to the point red wine. Beautiful view to the breezing mediterranian sea

Very nice restaurant, a little way out of the town centre but close to where we were staying. We had the set menu which was all very good and good value too. There was a good choice and everything was beautifully presented. Wine was also good although a little on the pricey side.

After our first visit here, we couldn't resist coming back for more. U Fanale really is an outstanding restaurant which offers high quality food. For only 28 euro's we enjoyed a four course meal with typical Corsican dishes. Every dish was beautifully presented and tasted even better. We asked for advice on which wine to drink with our meal.

Let's be honest, the food is good and the dishes are very well presented, however the service is very slow (we arrived at 9:30, got the table 20min later, get the starters at 11 and finish at 12:30am!), and the price is quite high: we pay around 55euros per person, including drinks. My advice: try to go during low season... More

Stunning view watching the sunset over the bay. Food delightful and staff very friendly. One of the nicest meals in corsica, without exception. Only because we were in calvi for 4 days did we not return.
