“Amazing sunbed-service with my toes in the mediterranean”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Traveled with a friend to Corsica and planned on staying just for a night in L'Île-Rousse. We ended up here by chance because we were looking for WiFi and Marinella was the most appealing beach-side cafe/bar/restaurant by the beach.

We ended up staying here for two days because of the amazing sunbed-service (8 Euro/sunbed/day) and since it was so comfortable to have everything served.

I'm usually not the coffe-drinking kind of guy but their Café Crema really got me hooked (3,60 Euro). You gotta try the Marinella Mussels for lunch (15,50 Euro)!
We also had a 3-course meal for two which was delightful. Add 2 pre dinner drinks, 4 glasses of rose wine, 2 myrte liquers for a totalt of 76,50 Euro and you have a bargain. Also the best thing was that we had the table 2 meters from the ocean.

Very friendly staff and extra kudos to Christina who took care of us.

“Wow factor!”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

This beach restaurant is really good. Yes the price is high but for a special day at the beach this is the best you can find in I’ll Rousse. From the moment we arrived the staff was very nice and kind. The beach loungers were great and the beach was white and the sea transparent blue. It was like a day in paradise. We want to come back!

Reviewed 14 August 2011

We went to this restaurant on 11th August 2011 for dinner having seen the recommendations on this website and I have to say it was disappointing.

The location is lovely but we had to wait 20 mins for a drink and 1hr 20 mins for our main course to arrive (and we were not alone in that judging by other tables nearby). When the food did arrive, it was OK but that's all, at £100 for two with 1/2 a bottle of wine.

The waiting staff seemed a sullen lot too, with the exception of the maitre d' who welcomed us pleasantly enough but doesn't run a very efficient operation.

There are several restaurants along this strip and, having been to another one during the week we were in Ile Rousse, it may be that they all suffer from the same problem.

They are all effectively smallish chalets on the promenade which occupy large areas of the beach, and I imagine the kitchens are just not big enough for the number of punters.

We have been to Ile Rousse about four times now and like the place very much but I'd avoid La Marinella unless you are prepared to have an extremely slow, ordinary meal with glum staff. The location is very pretty though.
