Upmarket but informal restaurant with terrace on the port serving superior quality cuisine. Dishes are nicely presented. The service is attentive and the wine list extensive. Easily the best restaurants on the strip in St Florent

Very fresh local seafood, great atmosphere, kind and interested staff. Our waitress was fantastic, service was great, and most importantly the food was excellent! Also, great wine selection with plenty of organic and natural wines. The best part was that we had our 2 year old with us while traveling. He was passed out when we arrived for dinner. The... More

Went for Dinner, had a table outside. Ordered the Langouste menu. Informed langouste were going out of season, were all too big and lobster was substituted. Also one of The first course choices was also not available with lobster: a bummer as it was what we had wanted. Wine list overwhelming and impressive for Corsican wines. Luckily we had expert...

We wandered in and were warmly welcomed! The best welcome we'd received in Corsica! We opted to sit just inside to avoid the harbour bustle and the smokers. We ordered from the set menu which was delicious. Waiting staff very happy to explain dishes or to recommend to us. A lovely evening and would recommend if you have £96 to... More

Right on the old town port, can order tasty sushi from the co-owned restaurant next door, great fresh seafood priced expensively.

We went as a family of 5 with time constraint since we had a concert planned for the evening. Service was very good. They gave very good suggestions and was very cooperative such that we manage to have a wonderful meal, and still manage to make it in time for the evening concert.

It's one of the best restaurants in the area and recommended by the Michelin guide. Great menu, great service and not too expensive. The location is perfect. Well worth a visit!

This was another mixed experience where the restaurant didn't live up to Trip Advisor ratings. It started badly with the waiter bring a large platter of fresh fish to our table. Perhaps it was one excursion too many from the kitchen, but, they were smelly. The amuse bouche of tomato and spinach roulade was flavoursome and light. The seasonal vegetable... More
