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.

This was the best restaurant we have visited up till now in Corsica! Every course looked like it was made by an artist and also the taste was exquisite. On top of that, the location was amazing!

We were SO grateful to find this place and arrive on a busy Friday evening to be found a table. Having spent our week in the beautiful town of Calvi, this was a find. We opted for the set price menu with choices and discovered some very tasty and different food from the normal fare (thank you God). A great... More

Garden restaurant serving top end cuisine a short drive out of Calvi centre. If you can live without the views and want good quality fresh food with a twist I thoroughly recommend giving this place a try.
