Let me start by saying that I am not a fan of French food, so visiting Corsica has been a challenge for me. There is only regional food. However, by chance we found this wonderful restaurant and I couldn't have been happier. We sat 20 feet from the water while the sun came down. We had wonderful drinks to start... More

A most pleasing beach side restaurant. A first class situation with a very good choice of "Plats" for lunch especially the fish and the pasta. Friendly efficient staff and fairly reasonably priced for the location. We look forward to eating there again.

For a relaxing lunch along the l'Ile Rousse beach, go to Marinella. Brothers Jo and Jean-Paul Firollini provide a warm welcome all. Tables are positioned either along the patio, adjacent to the white sand, inside, or up by the outdoor bar so there's a place for everyone. We usually chose a tall table by the outdoor bar so we could... More

Wonderful summer evening with wonderful temperatures. Full restaurant. We were right on the beach. The staff were very attentive and efficient. The food, my mussels and the Chicken Stir fry were both wonderful. Only surpassed by the desert. Great night, great food, great location and good price.

We tried several of the restaurants in the area and the Marinella was our favourite. We were served great food by very friendly attentive staff.

This restaurant sits right on the beach and there are 3 choices of location to eat on the sand itself on the decking by the restraunt or inside the restraunt itself. The menus are in both French and English and the staff can translate the daily specials board. The quality of the food is excellent with a good choice of... More

Foie gras - absolute heaven! We ordered todays chefs specials for the main courses, one was ravioli with lobster and gambas and the other a local fish with risotto - both great! The seating, just by the beach is very coasy and romantic. We will back one more time before we leave :)

We went to all the highly recommended restaurants in Ile Rousse and the six of us all found this one to be the best in terms of quality and taste of food. The setting is also beautiful right on the beach. I had a salmon starter which was fresh and delicious, followed by a main of equally delicious pasta. The... More

We were staying at the Liberata just opposite, so this restaurant was very convenient and our party of six ate here four times. Food and service excellent, friendly staff, great ambience on the beach, nice evening meal sunsets. Lyndelle was super efficient, spoke good English and very friendly. Food a bit pricey compared with most restaurants in town, but how... More
