My husband and I stopped for lunch at Le Maquis purely by chance during our motorcycle tour of Corsica and it was our best (of many excellent) meals on Corsica. We had fantastic fish dishes followed by a strawberry desert which came in 3 of these dishes - sadly we ate two before I realized I needed a photo. Wonderful... More

it was an amazing experience. I enjoyed the view and of course the meal. My favourite was the lobsters. The service was very satisfying, I cannot wait to go back! You are not in Corsica if you don't visit this amazing restaurant.

Fantastic doesn't begin to describe this place. The food is of incredible quality, the seafood - especially good. The dessert was a work of art, the staff very friendly and helpful, and perhaps the best pina colada I've ever had, with their own secret twist. Cannot recommend it enough, if you're in corsica you should eat here.

Myself and my fiancé called in as we were passing through one evening. I'm so glad we did the service was first class, and the food was the nicest I'd had all week ! Full of flavour and very filling. .. although we did make room for a sweet. Which also was incredible. Beautifully presented and tasted as good as... More

The setting seemed unpretentious, but the food was very good. Refined cooking. The service was average, seemed more like a family affair, but definitely the cuisine was high quality, professional.

Cosy family run restaurant with a nice terrace with views of the mountains and down to the sea. Excellent, good value food using local ingredients. The seafood linguine was one of the best things I have tasted. The menu is very good VFM.

This is a jewel of a restaurant. If you are in the Porto/Piana area one that must not be missed. Four of us had lunch here. While the Marina below groaned under the weight of tour busses, Le Maquis situated on the road above was surprisingly quiet and tranquil. The food was spectacular...mussels and the chocolate dessert exquisite. The wine... More

2 of us had dinner here on the evening of 7 September, a Saturday at the end of the summer season. We had reserved at lunchtime and were among the first to do so for dinner - the book was just about empty. We got a nice table on the terrace overlooking the coastline and village, and as the restaurant... More

horrifyingly rude service, enough to ruin any appetite. Don't be fooled by the nice terrace, it's a waste of nice space. I regret not reading the other reviews before, they're accurate, hilarious, and they would have saved us. I strongly advise to avoid at all costs.

We had the menu formule 23 Euros. Starter of salad. Very tasty and very nicely presented. But the bread rolls were like the frozen ones that one gets in Ireland. Definitely not boulangerie standard. The steak and fish mains were both excellent. Choice of dessert was either pannacotta or patisserie du jour (gateau au mango). We did not enjoy either... More
