Like others we were conned by the lady at the entrance with lots of chat - can't believe I fell for that! Service wasn't bad except that only 1 waiter seemed to know what he was doing and he managed to offer a pud that wasn't available! Food average at best. A pity as the location was nice. We won't...

The restaurant is set in a quaint courtyard, which is the perfect setting for your meal on a hot summers night. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

The little tables spread around a quaint courtyard make this place quite charming. The food was served courteously and promptly,and was quite tasty. A good choice in the pasta category, in a town with many choices...

Very friendly to begin with, once seated ordering/getting food took ages. One nice waiter seemed to be doing all the work. Lady very rude once we'd finished; stood over us whilst we finished our wine. Very intimidating and pushed our table out of the way to fit more diners in!

The restaurant is in a beautiful setting but DON'T be tempted to eat here. There is a lady who stands on the street outside the restaurant encouraging people to eat there. We felt completely conned by her - she was very friendly and attentive until she got is sat down and then went back to the street. We waited for... More

We have been "drafted" by a very persuasive lady that was "recruiting" customers" from the small commercial alley nearby. The restaurant has the tables placed on some of the alleys that form a maze in the old quarter of Calvi (see photos). Tables and chairs are adapted to the number of customers, place becomes progresively crowded, staff carries plates and... More

We had Dinner in this "Bistro" on our first night of our two weeks in Calvi and were pleasantly surprised; we decided to have the fix price menu with it's Corsican theme and although the choice was limited, it turned out to be very good value with every dish being nicely cooked, presented and extremely tasty. The strong Corsican cheeses... More
