We visited the restaurant last night and had and excellent meal. The staff were friendly and courteous. When I asked to change tables due to the close proximity of chain smokers the manager obliged and we ended up wit the best table in the restaurant! Food was excellent, not the cheapest restaurant but well worth it!

Don't miss this restaurant. We went twice and had a lovely meal both times. They must have a really good chef. Lots of fish on the menu and 7 hour cooked lamb which we will try on our next visit. Service was good but you are not rushed.

Service too mediocre too passe in terms of making you feel at ease. You somehow feel you are doing them a favor. Shame as food is decent.

Under normal circumstances we would not have eaten at this restaurant as the exterior is nothing special and the interior decor is very out dated; however we went on recommendation that the food was good ... and it was amazing! Who cares what the place looks like, we'd definitely go there again! Despite being a predominately fish restaurant, my husband... More

We chose this place because of good reviews and it was busy which was a good sign. Cosy areas inside and out and smallish menu on the pricey side. Waiter was pleasant but run off his feet - we saw a few people complaining and three couples leave before ordering as it was clear they'd be there all night waiting... More

Speciality is seafood, and they serve a good targine with fish pieces. The staff are friendly, a little food French helps a bit. There are board specials and it is located near a number of other restaurants , if you fail to book and it,s full. Prices are reasonable. As usual in France, ordering the 'menu' i.e. 3 courses fixed... More

Great food that is imaginative in an area that tends to serve the same dishes again and again. Small place of great quality. You can also ask the waiter to mix things up and there is no problem. I went back twice as this place was so good.

We wanted to eat in the heart of Calvi and were able to make a reservation for an outdoor seat. Since we have our family dog with us we try to make it as comfortable for him and the other patrons. The pre-fixe meal was amazing appetizer, main course and dessert-lemoncello Creme brûlée was a fantastic!!! The service was great... More
