Nice place with a nice seaside view. The food was good but I don't know why I was expected something a bit more. Anyway you should visit it in order to see a bit of the old island tradition.

"U TAVANINCU" is a traditionnal restaurant in a little village near from Bastia. You just have to climb the mountain's begining to take advantage of the view all in enjoying savour of fresh product and homemade ready-cooked dish.
With the view, you're totally immersed in the middle of balance of nature between the mediteraneen sea and the Corsica's greenery.
It would be better to reserve.
