My husband and I had two dinners and one lunch at Via Marine during our stay in Calvi. We ate on the small balcony overlooking the bay on each dinner occasion. The view was spectacular as the sun set. Space is at a premium on the balcony so you need to be prepared to be a little cramped. During our midweek dinner, service was excellent. However, on Friday night, the restaurant was packed and service was a little slow as there are only one or two servers for the entire restaurant. We were not in a rush so that it didn't matter and the servers are very friendly and work very hard to please everyone. We ordered seafood on both occasions and all of our main courses were fantastic as was the entree of fried mozzarella with salad. On Saturday, we had a pizza for lunch and ate at one of the outdoor tables on the pedestrian alley. We were also able to order green salads not on the menu. Via Marine is a cut above the other restaurants in the center of Calvi.

The food was freshly cooked and one could choose to have a starter then a main course inclusive of price, or a main course and a pudding. My husband and I ate here a couple of times and were never disappointed. There's plenty of choice on the menu and something for everyone. The staff are very friendly and happy to cook the food to your liking.

The website looked colorful and inviting, but it really did not give a real indication of what is unique about the restaurant. The enthusiasm and hospitality of those working the floor is contagious. The food is light, beautifully presented, and full of delightful surprise. However, if you are looking for amore upscale, fun evening out with a willingness to be open to a young chef's creative hand, this is a great option to the touristy cafes.

The service and food were good, but I didn't ruin the bank when it came to pay. Beautiful view from the outside tables. Good selection of wines to accompany the menu.

We ate here on the balcony admiring the stunning port view with 3 kids and half of us were vegetarians. The food was delightful, they made a plate of grilled vegetables taste amazing. The waitress was lovely and very efficient so they have overcome any issues reported in previous reviews. We came back the next evening without the kids in the pouring rain and sat inside which was very cosy and again fabulous food. The tomato tarte tartin was superb, fristo misto excellent; and apple tarte tartin, tiramisu and creme brulee all delicious. Presentation was haute cuisine, but servings generous and chef & waitstaff welcoming.
