The food is very good, portions are quite abundant, the staff is friendly. We had fish and meat to be cooked on the stone. Excellent! Dessert: chocolate mousse... Delicious! Comparing food quality and price, we didn't find it that expensive.

I do not know why thus is number 1 restaurant. Yesterday went there and the fish was horrible. It was clear that it was cooked either yesterday or at lunch then just warmed. Do not recommend at all.

Well located in the heart of the old city. Very popular as it was quite busy for the month of may. The french fries were super, the meat was good but not great. The fish would gave been a better option.

This restaurant deserves fully the high ratings. The food is good, some dishes excellent, service is well timed, well organised and friendly. Nicely priced menus. One of the best restaurants we visited on Corsica.

Ask for the house wine and you should be fine with about €25/person. The also normally have a 3 course special which is excellent and a great value.
