The restaurant is located on the seaside Route to Porto and can be easily walked to from the town center. The upstairs dining room has a pretty view and is very attractive; there is a dining terrace as well.

The restaurant offers both a traditional Corsican menu as well as some very creative nouvelle cuisine. We had a terrific charcuterie plate, rockfish soup, a lamb shank with 2 sauces, a local variation on cheesecake and a chestnut parfait. Vin d'orange apperitfs were delicious and came with olives on the house. The servers took the time to explain the menu and were very efficient.

After some tourist-trap restaurants in Corsica, we were pleased to find a very good restaurant in Calvi. Very nice setting with tables outside in the garden. The menu is limited but the dishes very good. Aristically presented and rich in taste. This family driven place has good service and I can recommend it especally for those who are tired of the so called traditional corcican dishes.

We would have much preferred to be in calvi centre after going to this restaurant. We chose the Corse menu ,bit of a mistake really ,maybe we would have been better off choosing the a la carte.The lamb was very tough. Seated next to the music system ,horrible rap stuff ,not enjoyable to listen to !. Not good value ,the staff were a bit sloppy and slow.However the St.Pierre fish was excellent with a lovely sauce. .The presentation of the dishes was good ,albeit a little over the top !The cheese course was very meagre. No view ,just a terrace under a huge pine tree surrounded by houses,won't be returning,i certainly wouldn't say it was the number one restaurant in Calvi.

We were recommended here by a local couple and it turned out to be a great evening. The food each course was exciting and it was interesting as to what other people had ordered the presentations were a work of art. It was value for money and by 20.00 it was packed, siting outside created a lovely atmosphere. We will be back there by the end of the week I promise.
