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

We got a table with sea view and the view was very peaceful and great. Very tasty food.we got the fix menu with a starter, main dish and a dessert and it is very worthy for how much it costs. Enjoy!

Booked for 10 persons for a 50th celebration. Lovely location in Citadel views over bay. Unfortunately could not book terrace as appeared to be reserved for VIPs. Many of us had the beef course which was cooked perfectly however the cuts were full of gristle and difficult to cut and eat the meat. The accompanying sauces were good. Wine was... More

This restaurant is in an absolutely perfect location. All of the tables are set among the cobbled streets in a beautiful location but I suggest that you make a reservation for a sea view - the view is truly magical. Despite being rushed off their feet, the staff are very professional and friendly with a good knowledge of the menu.... More
