We had great expectations before eating here and the disappointment was huge. The place itself is lovely and the live music nice. The menu was very small and we were surprised by the fact that you could not pay with a credit card, but cash only!!! In a European country in 2013!! My husband had to walk all the way to the "centre commercial" to take money out. We ordered fish soup (18 euros!) and soup paysanne as starters. After waiting for one hour for the soups and looking at 5 other tables, with people who had arrived after us, being served first we complained. We didn't receive any apologies but the soups were served quite quickly after that. Disapointingly the expensive fish soup didn't contain any fish nor vegetables and tasted/looked like plain water boiled with shrimps. It was really disgusting! It was then 9:30 pm and we had arrived at around 7 pm. Our 4 year old son was getting very tired and hungry (since the soup wasn't eatable) and we asked if we had to wait for a long time for the main course since we'd already waited a lot. We told them our concerns for our exhausted son. We were told to wait for 10-15minutes. After that the servers seemed cross with us and banged the plates and the bill on the table and didn't even look at us. It's a shame that they treat customers like that. To be honest, we could have given them a second chance: the atmosphere and the main course (lamb meat) were in fact great. But since we ended up starving for hours, our evening was such a horrible experience that we will never return to this restaurant again...

By chance we spotted this restaurant up a little road behind our hotel. We wandered up hopeful that it was a local Corsican venue rather than a tourist place. We were not disappointed. Although we struggle with French/Corsican language we were kindly assisted to choose food and wine. It speaks for itself that we returned the next day. Although early in the season it became busy and we could see why. The food was absolutely delicious and the local Corsican red wine we chose was very nice indeed, although on 2nd visit had 50cl not 75cl as it was a little strong. We would not hesitate in recommending this place.

The auberge is open only for diner and not on sundays.

We have taken a diner there, the food was absolutely good, price was correct (based on corsican standards) the advices for wine and desserts where relevant.

The arbor is quiet with shadows due to old trees.

The restaurant was apparently famous for local people.

If we come back in this part of corsica, we will diner there again.
