On the busy Rue Clemenceau, this restaurnant has a wonderful array of quality Corsican wines,at reasonable prices, combined with high quality food .The service is excellent and I recommend making a reservation to get a table on their small terrace, or,a bas on the road,to add people watching to the other pleasures of the establishment

We ended up in this place after first trying on of it nabours that were full, and it was a great find. I ended up trying their pigs cheek with Mash potato and it was absolutely delicious - one of the best meals while in Corsica :-). My husband had grilled squid that were okey but a little over done, but all in all a great place.

We had lunch here on the little balcony/terrace outside. All other customers were French / Corsican, which is always a good sign! We had wild boar lasagne and a Corsican platter (charcuterie, pate, cheese, etc), which were both delicious. Service was attentive and it was good value - above plus two beers and two coffees was about €45.

I went in this restaurant this year in June. Le Lonely Planet Tourist Guide suggested us to try this restaurant. We tried some "corse" dishes, very very good!! I still remember the "panna cotta with cream of cataignes" ... delicous! Also very very beautiful the location, in the main street of Calvi. Suggested!

This looks like an unimposing wine bar but the assiettes are good. We had top-of-the range Assiette Corse for 16.50 (hmm, that's not cheap) and it was comprehensive - a slice of omelette, cold meats, hot saucisson, cheese, and salad (well, lettuce and tomato). Washed down with a 12.80 bottle of local wine it was a satisfactory late supper. Desserts however, croustillant de pommes at 6.50 and dessert du jour at 7.50 were underwhelming and not worth the price. Neither the bread nor the coffee was up to much either. There are other assiettes and other dishes too, and they all looked good. Overall a rather mixed experience in a busy little wine bar.
