“Little gem of a restaurant with outstanding view”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

We have visited Chez Charlot twice during our stay in Propriano and on both occasions have found this restaurant to be absolutely fabulous. It is worth booking in advance as it does get very busy with locals and tourists alike. If the locals utilise it, then it must be good! Request a table overlooking the bay as the view is stunning and the sunset glorious.
The food is predominantly local Corsican cuisine but the menu is wide and varied, so should suit everyone's taste. The waiting staff are extremely attentive and on the second time we visited, we received additional food and drinks at no extra cost - for no reason other than they had recognised us from our previous visit.
One word of caution - they don't take credit cards.....!!!!! But apart from that, it is definitely worth a visit.

“Welcoming local restaurant with stunning views of Propriano bay”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

A well-patronised local restaurant in Viggianello, worth the drive from Propriano. Terrace provides stunning views at night, although don't be fooled by the hot weather - take another layer just in case! Very good set menu at 19 euros and the local dishes well worth tasting. Attentive staff provide high levels of simple, uncomplicated service!

“Excellent Corsican food in a "locals" restaurant”
Reviewed 6 March 2011

The restaurant has a terrace across the road with superb views of the coast. It was a little chilly for that on an evening in September so we elected to eat inside and were very lucky to get a table as we hadn't reserved. This is a restaurant patronised mostly, from what we could see, by local people. It sounded as if the efforts in the kitchen were a family affair. The food was excellent. A soupe de poisson as one starter was served in a large tureen and nearly defeated me - great taste. Main courses of lapin chasseur - very tender rabbit in a good sauce with olives and mushrooms - and a Corsican Daube were excellent. Next a cheese and jam course - very Corsican. Then fresh fruit to finish. All for 38 Euro - and that included 50cl carafe of local wine. Service may appear off-hand but is, in fact, very congenial - they didn't bat an eyelid when we accidentally cracked a water carafe "pas grave", didn't charge extra on the bill (though we left a generous tip).
