We had a lovely meal at this restaurant. The portions are generous and very tasty. We washed it down with a lovely bottle of rose. One starter, two mains and one dessert was 140 euro... So not cheap but we didn't feel fleeced. Our waitress was extremely pleasant and friendly.

We have eaten here before and it was very special so we went again hoping for another special meal. However this was not the case. Last year this restaurant was always full but this year on a Friday night it was barely 20% full. The main menu seems the same as before with a specials board. I had the black... More

The staff were friendly and had a translated English menu. The food was lovely but the portions were very large. It is pricey but very nice. Children aged 11 and 13 had no problem choosing from the menu either.

Went to the Bistrot as it was already getting a high rating on trip advisor. It was even better than expected. Black Angus beef was amazing and the cod equally good. Service was friendly and efficient. Great evening with fabulous food.

We booked a table for 4. All the dishes were very well presented. I asked for cuttlefish, my wife for a black Angus steak. Both were left unfinished. Cuttlefish was unchewable and steak that was supposed to be of very high quality was actually not. Other two friends of us who had lamb and shrimps did not find any thing... More

Such a wonderful experience I don't know where to start. Firstly they have French wine, rather than simply Corsican. And it is really good value with lovely aged claret for 40euros. The service was really good, really lovely friendly and attentive staff. The food was really good - the meat and veg, the special of the day, was impeccable. I... More

A splendid meal in the square of L'ile Rousse offered Michelin standards of cooking in a super ambiance. A special treat. The locally caught fish was a particular treat.

We enjoyed a lovely amuse-bouche, a generous helping of perfectly-cooked coquilles-st-jacques, and two superb main courses to follow; one of delicious cod and the other a tender rack of lamb. The combination of very high quality ingredients with generous servings was unusual. We plan to return.

The food is delicious and the portion is big. For the main hish, there are many kinds of vegetables cooked in different ways, not just as decoration,... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. It is a family affair with the father in the kitchen and at least one daughter helping to wait tables. The food was excellent and they have very good list of Corsican wines. If we were to be back in Ile Rousse, this would be a restaurant we would... More
