Despite reading the mixed reviews we decided to give it a go as we loved the setting. However, we left feeling regretful and disappointed. The female waitress was extremely rude. During starters she took away my partners plate whilst he was still eating and just walked off! The bigger issue came with the main... When ordering my partner asked for... More

Besides having to fight with the flies for the food, we had to deal with a waitress who disrespected us several times during the dinner, specially when we asked questions about the dishes. We had never been treated like that before. Maybe it was because we could not speak French properly...What a shame! By the way, the food is good... More

We went to U Fornu after a recommendation from our resort info. We were not disappointed. The food, setting and service were all excellent. To start we both had the Corsican cheese tart which were very good indeed. I had the entrecôte steak for a main. This was superb. Partner had lamb, again superb. The service was exemplary with a...

I went there with my family because all the other restaurants were still closed. When we asked the waiter said it was open, however after 20minutes waiting for her to bring the menu and take our order for drinks, she told us she could only serve us any food after 19:00, it was 18:25. We ordered some beverages and the... More

The location of this restaurant is great: it's on a busy shopping street in Calvi and the terrace is off to the side, so the curb appeal is enormous. It looks very inviting. Our first issue was with the glassware. It had obviously been sitting on the table for a long time as it was dirty and most of the... More

We passed this resto several times during our stay in Calvi. It's just too romantic. BUT the food is such a disappointment. Pricy and not matched by quality. My scallops and my man's lamb was undercooked and when we let staff know they had the cheek to say that we should have let them know how cooked we wanted it.... More

Excellent little place for food. Live music on arrival and loved the wooden tables and outdoor decor. The food was lovely and service very good.

This place promises more than it delivers-apprehension set in the minute we sat on the rough-hewn 'rustic' wooden chairs. There were enough splinters to jag tights or a silk dress. It seemed understaffed for a busy Saturday evening and the resulting service was a bit chaotic with us having a request a bottle of water twice before it arrived at... More
