Small menu is normally a sign of good food and this is the case! Everything was just perfect and we enjoyed also the nice atmosphere of the place. Great service, quick and kind, love it!

Fantastic langoustines with some fresh pasta. It was delicious. The pastries a desert were also very good. You have to be a bit patient ... But who cares in such a nice environment.

Stumbled upon this place as our first meal in Corsica - lovely salade de la mer and langoustines. Simple food but very nicely presented on the lovely sunny terrace. Definitely recommended!
