“Good but should have been better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Tucked away behind the fish shop away from the town centre is Auberge du Pecheur. The garden it is set in is very nice and there is more a fine dining experience than the harbour restaurants. The staff are obviously better trained also which adds to the service element, although not spot on - we arrived as a couple with no reservation and were shown to an out of the way table when there were few people in the restaurant. Apparently it was all booked although it didnt get busy for another one and a half hours, and the waiter carved our fish with a regular knife and fork rather than proper fish utensils. For a speciality fish restaurant the food should have been better. I have regularly made better fish soups and the main baked fish for two people was a bit flavourless (i actually suggest the method of baking it with a hard salted crusty shell actually extracts moisture and flavour rather than infusing it into the fish). On the otherhand the tuna carpaccio was excellent and i would be very keen to eat that again. Overall you can find tastier meals for 50% of the price elsewhere in st florent, but the setting and the higher calibre service perhaps warrants a small premium if they can get the food right.

“A special outdoor garden for fish connoisseurs tucked away from the busy village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Wonderful service and food in the outdoor back garden, tucked away from the busy harbor. A nice surprise after a long traveling day. A special outdoor setting, interesting seafood and fish dishes. A special find!

“Great food, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

L'Auberge du Pecheur was the highlight of our stay in St. Florent. They were able to provide us with a table despite no reservation and the service was great. The food (tuna steak) was delicious and the whole restaurant area is very stylish.

“Expensive but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Very fresh fish cooked with care and delicacy. Nice atmosphere in the garden. good service.
Expensive, like other good restaurants in the area. Lack of side dishes and salads, vegetables and the like, but this also true for all the corsican reataurants we've visited.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

Everything was delicious, tuna tartare, tuna steak, fillet of sole, scallops. Good Corsican wines. we loved the tropical garden setting which is rather unecpected, the owner is very attentive and came round to discuss our meal, how he fishes, etc. reasonably priced especially given the quality of the produce. Professional service and very welcoming for children
