Last summer in August, me and my wife had several lunches and a memorable dinner party with local friends at this restaurant, overlooking Ste Restitude, one of loveliest coves in the Calvi bay area. The cuisine is exquisite, with ultra fresh and nicely cooked fish and seafood in particular; not to talk about outstanding deserts (and I am not especially a sweet tooth!) We were staying in the village of Lumio, same jurisdiction as this beach restaurant. The matter of the fact is that almost each time we went to that beach bringing sandwiches and stuff with the intention of having a picnic, we could not resist and ended-up having lunch at the restaurant... Service may be slow at times and all the waitresses not necessarily "nice". But there are more important criteria to judge a restaurant's personnel: one day I inadvertently dropped my wallet my way back from the restaurant to our beach spot. In the evening, I realized that I had lost my wallet and I rushed to the beach restaurant where we had lunch, with little hope that I could get it back. The restaurant's cook had found it on the boardwalk and left it at at my disposal on the front desk. There was about 80 Euros in cash in it, my driver's license, three credit cards, etc. In other words, this loss could have ruined my vacation. The front desk staff gave my wallet back to me with a smile. Everything inside had been untouched. I took it back with a deep sigh of relief... You can imagine that I was extremely grateful to them, to the cook in particular that was rewarded with a well deserved tip, Not only he is a great cook, but he is also a very honest person. We celebrated this recovery on following day at Le Pain de Sucre, "comme il se doit", with a three course lunch with Corsican Rosé. A recommended address, definitely!
