Description: Hotel with restaurant U Marinaru in Corsica Centuri High... Sheltered in one of most beautiful bays of Cap Corse, the village is discovered with the turning of a collar, in a stunning panoramic view. In front of oneself: the broad one, in the back: mountains of an almost purple blue. A situation privileged for Centuri, "first French port of fishing season to lobster". Located at 200 Mr. of the port, the hotel U Marinaru dominates the roofs of the village. Nathalie and Olivier accommodate you there as from the 1st week of JUNE. Lobsters, as it should be so that Centuri deserves the title of "first French port of the fishing season to lobster", but also denti, liches, wolves, capons, mullets, scorpion fishes, sea-breams, saint-Pierre, sharp, spider crabs... are fished off the coasts by our own boats. A freshness guaranteed for the map of the restaurant, renewed with the liking of the whims of the sea and the wind. Boat with the kitchen... And yes! there remains still a place where one still cooks "house", the fishing season of the day keeps freshness and flavour. Succulent whitebait with the unforgettable bouillabaisse, delicious fish of the day roasted with the plancha with alive lobster, cooked to perfection... without forgetting the spaghettis with lobster with the sauce house, the kitchen of the Chief, Olivier, will allure you by his quality, its simplicity and its authenticity. The terrace, shaded at midday, offer in the evening finishing a splendid sight on the mountain, the roofs of Centuri and beyond, the sea. One always expected moment when the sun, before disappearing sets ablaze the sky. The family atmosphere is cordial and convivial, the table, greedy and copier. The service is ensured by Nathalie whose jollity, good mood add, with the pleasure of the palace, that of the communication. MENUS FROM 14.90 €.

“Authentic Experience But Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

A delightful setting on a terrace overlooking this quaint port town.
The shrimp entree we both had was very fresh (a bit too much olive oil). We went for a small lobster between us, fully aware that you pay by the 100g, it was nice but a bit over-rated, you don't get much meat when it's all extracted from the shell (and you do have to work for it!) and apart from some potatoes and lots of lettuce and tomatoe, that's it (you still might be hungry if you've hiked or ridden a bike). The Filipino waitress was very friendly and helpful and spoke lots of languages.
We also stayed in a very neat and tidy upstairs room with a small balcony.
Overall a good experience but the place is a little tired

“Exploitation”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Really sit back with the worst feeling of being used and tricked by waitress in this restaurant. We had never tried langouste before and asked how many grammes is normally had per adult (seeing as how they sell them for 13 eur/100g grilled and add to that 5 eur/100g for a spaghetti dish. We were not really helped but quickly presented for a big guy of 1,6 kg. before we had done the math the shellfish was in the kitchen and we realised we end up with a eur 250+ tab for the lunch. Sadly the langouste was overcooked and the sauce for the spaghetti was very strong in its taste so we couldn't even really enjoy the meal. Worst feeling though is the feeling of having been exploited for our lack I knowledge. Cannot warn against the service at this restaurant enough! Be aware of the size of the langouste if you do decide to give them a try.
We had expected to pay around 100 eur for a lunch with this specialty realizing that it is not cheap but this was way too expensive!
