We spent a week in Algajola, one of our favourite villages in Corsica and U Castellu became our favourite place to eat. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and served by friendly and attentive waiters. We enjoyed our meal so much that we booked a...More

The location is nice. It is quiet and peaceful, far from the tumult of the road. But the food was such a disappointment. My partner ordered the menu (23€, good price). The quality was not worth the money. The entrecôte arrived with no sauce and...More

It's a slightly more upmarket place, in a beautiful area and the food was very good - the Corsican veal was excellent. We had the 3 course dinner which is a bit more expensive than in some of the other places but so the quality...More

Ate here on our first of 5 nights in Algajola. Food was so so. Nice staff. Fish soup thin and only alright. Couscous de la mer very tasty. Nice space.

We only stayed two nights in Algajola and we decided to dine at u castellu because of the lovely setting and the appealing menu. We enjoyed our meal and we were pleased with the friendly service (although they made a few mistakes). I had the...More

I hope we chose a bad night. Our waiter was out of his depth, twice brought the wrong main courses, put the on the table, and then took them away. The other waiter came regularly to reassure us but we had a very very long...More
