We stumbled across this beach restaurant by chance. It is situated on a small beach looking towards Calvi. The setting is perfect, swimming and snorkelling off the beach is very good. The restaurant serves excellent food although be prepared to spend around 75 euros a head for a three course meal plus wine plus coffee. On the other hand this... More

Wonderful towards Calvi town. Small beach, very few tourist. Wonderful food, speedy service when taking the order then it collapsed. No further interest if we wanted desert or coffee.

I'm afraid restaurants of this quality and location are going to become increasing impossible for the devalued £ holder! We only had one main course each and a bottle of water. The filet St Pierre was a pleasant grilled fish and my wife had a pasta in lemon sauce. These were at the modest end of the main courses. The... More

Just stopped for a quick afternoon coffee - location was great, coffee was cold but it could ha e been due to the heavy winds that maybe cooled it down quickly. Either way, loved the tables and chairs on the sand!

This restaurant is delightful, tucked neatly away on its own on the beach in Lumio with wonderful views across the ocean to Calvi and its citadel. The menu is not extensive (which we prefer), and is the same for lunch and dinner, but each dish is cooked to total perfection and so artistically presented by a happy and friendly waiting... More

We were a little intimidated to be honest - pressed white table cloths, waiters all in white - and us pretty much coming off the beach. But having taken the plunge, the staff could not have been more welcoming or friendly. Beautiful food, excellent service, and a wonderful location. And the kids could run off and play on the beach...

I had flagged Matahari's as one of the places we wanted to try on this trip thanks to the TA reviews and pix, so thank you all once again. The setting - not far from Calvi or Algajola and down off the main highway, you find the restaurant nestled on a lovely little beach that looks back across the bay... More

This is an eye-wateringly expensive place to eat BUT come just before sunset and you'll be rewarded with one of the most romantic meals of your life! The tables are on the beach here and have a view across Calvi Bay taking in the aforementioned sunset if you arrive in time. And as darkness falls, the gorgeous lighting heightens the... More
