We visited here twice during our week in Calvi. The locals at our hotel recommended this place and they weren't wrong. A delicious 3 course meal for 48 euros, a view to die for overlooking the harbour and kind and caring staff .What more could you want. Will return for sure next year ,hope it is run by the same...

About the quality of the food maybe they could reach one more star, but the price you have to pay related to the quality of the food is really too much. It's true that we ate 3 langoustine , but we paid 500 euro for this . It s really too much. Moreover they write the price related to every... More

This restaurant is situated on the marina, on the first floor, with open windows and a panoramic view of the marina. The food is at a high level, service is good, and the surroundings are also one level from the strip of restaurants on the marina side. The food is well prepared, high level classic french cuisine, with small hors... More

This was our former favourite Calvi restaurant. It is a lovely setting overlong the harbour and has been smartened up since we last went about six years ago. The fish was excellent quality as though it had jumped out of the sea, but it was somehow underwhelming and it was one of the most expensive meals on our two week... More

Fantastic fresh ingredients and delicious food in a beautiful relaxed environment. If you want that little extra that no other restaurant on the port offers eat here. The desert chef is an artist. I will return for more...

The restaurant is set overlooking the marina and the front strip of their competition, the best view on this strip. The service was very good compared to other reviewers comments and our chap had excellent English and a big smile. The food quality was ok, I had fish soup which was just on the borderline of to salty, at home... More

The view from the terrace is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting out immensely. However, we found the food very disappointing in comparison to our other meals in Corsica. One of our entree was the octopus salad and for our mains we had the cannelloni which was really dry and the risotto which lacked flavour and sauce. Dessert was chocolate fondant... More
