Corsica Restaurants

  • Superb cuisine.

    At first view this large restaurant just under the walls of the citadel, looks like a tourist trap. It is a trap in a way because once you start eating you want more and more and... A great welcome from the charming hostess, then seated outside with a view to the street, we had a lovely evening here. We both took the menu at 18.50 euros plus a...

  • Best for Corsican atmosphere. Sartene.

    This is really a locals restaurant and the "ambiance" shows, Jean the patron, shaking hands with everyone and sharing jokes and a glass or two. Of course, Corsican music in the background and from time to time someone stands and sings along with it. A cave type brick roof maries well the smoky chimney and narrow passage between the tables. Get here...

  • Traditionnal food.

    Joyous and friendly welcome from the the two girls that own this restaurant. Typical Corsican bar/resto there are people walking in and out all the time, having a beer and a joke, listening to a bit of music and disappearing again almost as fast as they arrived, creates a great atmosphere. We both had the lamb with different spices (which remained...

  • Biera corsa, Corsica cola and bruschetta

    After a few hours of walking on the rough trails above the villages, you certainly will feel thirsty and even wouldn’t mind having a bit of something! In Calacuccia and other villages of Niolu, you can sit a café terrace and enjoy the “exotic” Corsican beer;”exotic”, as it is a beer where chestnut flour is used as a base ingredient, brewed with...

  • Great view perched over a valley

    Top quality cuisine, lovely ambience, great view over the entire valley through the back wall that is entirely window, and an extremely ebullient host. Not cheap, though.

  • Cuisine Corse

    Traditional Corsican cuisine is much more hearty and meat-based than one might think, considering that Corsica is a Mediterranean island belonging to France. But fish and seafood are not widely eaten and most places offering it are rather expensive and mainly found in tourist areas on the coast. In traditional Corsican restaurants you'll find cold...

  • Eating in the port of St.Florent

    The second evening we opted for a restaurant near the port and after have looked at everyone's menu (as they were exposed outside the restaurant) we stopped at the last restaurant on the street which offered Corsican menu for 15 Eur but at the end we even paid more than the evening before where the menu was 18.5 Eur. However, restaurant was full of...

  • Corsican food

    Our first dinner in Corsica and of course we opt for local food. Checking out our "La Guida verde" and here we find advices for a restaurant called Ind'e Lucia. Its entrance is on to the tiny place Doria, below the citadel. It serves wonderful mountain charcuterie and, in season, melt-in-the-mouth sardines stuffed with brocciu , washed down with...

  • Fantastic Corsican Nouvelle Cuisine

    Bertrand left his high flying bankers job in Paris and opened this delightful restaurant. He uses the finest artisan ingredients, all from nearby villages, to cook old traditional dishes in a nouvelle cuisine manner. The result is amazing!! From delicious lamb dishes spiced with local herbs and stuff with chesnuts, to a melon mousse, you will want...

  • Authentic Corsican Home Cooking

    Francesca built her little chalet in the village of Querciolo all by herself just by the maquis, and not too far from a lovely beach. She's a wonderful cook and great company, explaning about the traditional Corsican food, and she's very knowledgable about local customs, culture, plants and wild life. She cooks to order, everything is fresh and...

  • Eat Local Seafood on the Beach

    L'Ariadne Plage Restaurant is not the nicest in Ajaccio, however, if you spend a day on the beach and get hungry by noon, it is a good choice for lunch. I had a grilled lobster. You may not find lobster everyday, but the other options such as pizza etc. deserve to be tasted.

  • Pastis

    The beach restaurants will stay open longer and dinner starts around 7.30.Do try an aperitif while you are waiting for your meal.A Pastis (aperitif) is made up from wine,herbs and quinine.Generally,the food is simple,delicious and filling.There is plenty of fresh fish and pizzeria's about and snack bars on the sea front.If you like cheese,the goats...

  • Fruit Wine and Wild Boar

    Do try the fruit wine that is made from kiwi,peaches,nuts,watermelons and blackberries,which is 15%.Family run restaurants in the mountains often have no menu and they will serve you something that has been passed down the generations by word of mouth.You may have wild boar or goat.Lunch starts at 12 and finishes at 2 and you will probably not find...

  • Corsica's French and Italian influence .

    Corsica's French and Italian influence is reflected in it's food.For a tasty starter try a selection of cold meats or a fish soup with croutons or a hearty casserole made with mushrooms and olives.Treat your self to 'pisticcine', a cake made from chestnut flour.There are many fine wines ,try Clos Nicrosi,Orenga de Gaffory's Blanc de Blancs or the...

  • Corsican Cuisine in Corte

    U Museu is at the entrance to the Citadelle that dominates Corte. It advertises Corsican specialties, but also serves dishes like spaghetti bolognese which suited our boys (aged 10 and 12) just fine. The service was fast and friendly. The bill was very reasonable. A three course Corsican dinner was EUR 15 per person. Add a few more EUR for a...

  • Best Pizza in Calvi

    The location is at the back of a supermarket parking lot. The decore is storefront minimal. And the menu is fairly limited. But the limited range means that what Antoine does, he does very well. What's more, the price was reasonable. Our boys rated the pizzas highly. Having lived in Bologna for a year, I know a good tagliatelle bolognese when I am...

  • Real Corsican Food in a Real Corsican...

    We stayed for two nights at the only hotel open in Calacuccia, the one that doubles up as a petrol station !!!! The hotel L'Acqua viva was ok if a little expensive ( well when the bill actually came they did knock quite a bit off and this really pleased us !!! ) In the evening when we went out to eat we discovered tht ALL the restaurants in...

  • Great fish dishes!

    The fishing fleet of small boats is being modernised, but it maintains the old traditions. For the large part it is day fishing [or at least out and back within 24 hours]. Distribution is not highly organised and most of the catch is sold on the quayside, bought directly by restaurants or sold in a few daily markets or itinerant...

  • For cheese buffs...

    Locally made cheeses are from sheep or goat milk. Most cheese is made by the shepherds themselves. There are few semi-industrial producers. Thus cheeses are known by the maker's name. Nowadays many cheeses are consumed fresh, but they were normally matured. They can vary from very mild to some of such strength that they have to be contained in...

  • Taste the Corsican wine!

    Even the big co-operative cellars produce excellent quality wines. In 2000 there were 2 900 hectares of vines in Corsica vs 11660 in 1970. There are 350 vignerons in Corsica and more than a third are dedicated to the top end of the market. In 2001, 56% of the wine produced was of the quality 'Vins du pays' and 28% was AOC. This means that only 16%...

  • Don't miss the local food!

    Corsican gastronomy is rich and varied, not that you might think so, if you looked through a French pair of spectacles. Many of the food products, as elsewhere, were seasonal and added to the richness and variety of the diet. Many people stick to the habit of eating things in season, even though modern production methods can enable year-round...

  • Taste the myrtle brandy!

    Corsican proverb:'à chì beie sempre finisce cù e ranochje in corpu'. (He who drinks only water ends up with frogs in his belly). This 'Acquavita' is produced by wine makers from either wine or marc. It is frequently flavoured. My favourite is the one made by macerating a sprig of myrtle berries in it.

  • L'Oriente Sandwich Bar

    L'Oriente Sandwich BarThis is one of the closest things you'll find to a fast food takeaway in Corte. It offers burgers and chips, chicken nuggets, fish and various sandwiches. Prices start at 10francs for a small box of chips. Everything here is nice but one of my favourites is the Omelette Sandwich. This was a big baguette filled with a cheese...

  • L'Echequier

    L'EchequierThis was my favourite restaurant in Corte. It's delicious and reasonably priced with friendly staff. I ate there twice and it was lovely. This restaurant offers a wide choice of food as well as several set menus. I always had the 'Menu touristique' which was a 3 course meal with several options for a total of 75 francs. The food I ate...

  • Restaurant Service Non-Stop

    Restaurant Service Non-StopWhen eating out, this was one of the most common places for me as it was probably the cheapest. It's a nice but basic little restaurant where most main courses are 25francs (£2.50). There's a wide variety of meals on offer such as Pasta, omelettes, Burgers, salads. It's a nice place with a friendly atmosphere. Carbonara...

  • SusanneBeck's Restaurant Tip

    Food in Corsica tends to be more Italian than French. That was great for me. I'm not very adventurous and don't have the desire to eat frogs legs and snails. I didn't even have the chance in Corsica anyway and was delighted to try different pasta dishes and pizzas. Along the coast, there are lots of seafood restaurants but inland, pork, game and...
