“Full of locals - usually a good sign”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

On our first night in the area and we needed an evening meal. There's a good choice in Propiano, ranging in price from budget to moderately expensive. A few places were deserted at 2000hrs, others buzzy and full. We had the last table outside at L'Ambata. Soon there was a queue. The menu is varied, with pizza, pasta, salads and roasts being available. We asked for pizzas but our waitress advised that there was a wait as the pizza oven had so many orders. Not to worry, we changed our order to one of roast lamb thigh on a bed of mashed potato and one seafood linguine. A couple of beers and a bottle of the local rosé rounded things off. All well cooked and served. The menu is in French and little English is spoken (so what, it is France!). My wife's school girl French and a phrase book got us by easily. The tables are quite close together, but not excessively so. Perhaps the numbers the restaurant attracts keeps the prices reasonable! Recommended.

“A refuge in Propriano”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

When we checked into our hotel and discovered that the Internet connection was less than stellar (horrible at best), we asked the desk where to get wifi and they recommended here. The manager greeted us and we ordered a couple drinks. The food was very nice and the open air to the sea is amazing.

They were very kind and nice and I would gladly give them my business. They close between 2-7, so it's early or late for dining.

“Great all round restaurant offering excellent service and value”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

The staff here work hard to ensure your needs are met. The menu, although simple, is extensive with choice for all. Very good wine list. Views of Propriano and marina make an excellent backdrop to your meal.

“Not a self service but a very reasonable restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We walked in off the street because the smells wafting out were irresistable. And justified! Good italian fare at reasonable (considering location) cost. Open air terrance looking over the port. Price 22 euros/person including wine.
