My wife and I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions over the years and have always considered it to be the best in Calvi. The recently awarded Michelin star was long overdue in our opinion as the standard of cuisine and service is of the highest order. Taking this into account and the restaurant's location, prices are bound to be high but well worth pushing the boat out for.

At our latest visit the bill came to well over 300 euros, which we thought not unreasonable given that we received seven courses including lobster, sole and turbot and very attentive service. As always when in France we drank the local wines, which with the sommelier's help were perfect matches for the food.

A feature that impressed my wife was the provision of a stool for her handbag!

It's best restaurant in Calvi, much better than 'la villa' since Chef changed. We go every year but this year is best. Price isn't cheap but almost restaurants are very expensive in Calvi so if you don't want disappointment price and quality, this restaurant is correct, I think. They have Michelin's one star.

We ate here twice during our stay, (as well as twice at Hotel La Villa). I do not understand why it is not busier. It is less expensive than La Villa, and less formal, but the food for me has the edge. I'm vegetarian, they didn't laugh out loud, they were very accomodating, and nothing was any trouble for them. On my return visit, they even had a veggie amuse bouche for me. I had the best risotto I've ever had, (I've had a lot!) and the best chocolate dessert ever - a selection of FOUR different type chocolates in miniature desserts,- the chocolate fondant was the best of these. There is an extensive wine list, the local wines are potent, and inexpensive. Whilst not a cheap meal, it was good value for food of this quality. It earned its first star within 2 years of opening, which according to my foodie companion is rare. I just loved the food, the friendly service and the amazing views.
