Probably the best view of the coast, set in old Corsica with some lovely food and drink and great service. We did half day to the Citadel and had lunch here. Very happy. You can also combine it with an evening concert in the Citadel.

We are fortunate to be staying in the Citadelle, overlooking this restaurant, so only a short walk for us. The view is stunning from the beautiful slightly secluded courtyard, if you walked from one direction you would only see tables with only buildings as a view. We couldn't understand why the most perfect table was unoccupied until we went to... More

We were attending the singing concert at the cathedral- needed to be there at 730 to buy tickets for a 930 concert. This is the perfect place to eat- 2 minutes away with stunning ( absolutely stunning ) views over harbour if you have the right seats. We had pre booked the perfect seats in the corner. Good was much... More

Every time we come to Calvi we come to have at least a dinner over here. The restaurant is situate on top of the old citadel where the view is breathtaking. The courses offered are tipical from Corse and you can chose from pasta/meat/fish. Everything we tasted was very good and the prices are ok too. Must visit!

Read a Lonely Planet recommendation and then saw the restaurant and looked good. But a big disappointment in our 20 days in France. Over cooked, bland and all dishes looked the same - sauce at 3.00, eggplant at 6.00 potatoes at etc.

Stunning view over Calvi beaches from the small terrace on the edge of the citadelle. You need to reserve 1-2 days in advance for the best tables. A good variety of dishes displayed but only half available during off season, not customer friendly. The food was very nice though.

We were lucky. Best table on terrace with a view over the bay. Excellent food and service. Ended up staying for a whole afternoon, eating, drinking and having a great time with friends.

Set on a narrow street up in The Citadel this is a great place to take a rest and enjoy a coffee. We weren't even sat down on the terrace overlooking the harbour but still thought it was just lovely, however, it was towards the end of the season so not a lot of people walking passed us.

A word of warning, this restaurant is in the old citadel and is quite a pull for elderly or people with a mobility issue. The views are good over Calvi bay, but the restaurant is sat between two buildings and if you are sat towards the back, then this restricts the vision. The food was wholesome Corsican fare and quite... More

The views from the lower terrace are fabulous! Try to get a table in front. It's the kind of restaurant where you would want to linger for hours, and I don't get the feeling that they'd mind. We felt lucky to have stumbled across this restaurant while we were trying to find Christopher Columbus' birthplace and asked to reserve for... More
