I didn't know what to expect, never having tried typical Corsican food and I loved it! On top of that, we felt as if we were being received at a friends house. The lamb was amazing, tender and juicy. As for the risotto with Corsican sausage... it was dreamy! The only low point is maybe the amount of grease. Let's... More

Simply Corsican. The owner has meat imported directly from Corsica, from the family farm. Nice, but small, selection of corsican wines, if in doubt ask for the Calvi red, but make sure it's chilled slightly (say 14° or 15°C). Simply presented mountain food, what more could you want. They have seafood, too.

20 euro for a mussel starter (although was scallop when we visited), white fish with bacon and risotto main and you're free to chose any desert off the menu. Add in a 4 euro glass of wine and it's great value!

We found Mare & Monti by accident, off the main thoroughfare. The food was splendid - Corsican burger and lamb with ravioli really were very good indeed. The Bandol red wine was delicious, but don't miss the Pietra (Corsican chestnut flavoured beer)! Tip - the street is set back from the seafront and was cooler on the day we visited:... More

The food is really good and the service excellent although it is expensive. They were happy to change various things on the menu according to taste. The restaurant is attractive and modern but does lack atmosphere
