The restaurant is nice placed directly at the little harbour of Erbalunga. The fish soup had no fish pieces inside, it was only the soup. The grand salad had a dressing which tastes manufactured not homemade. The entrecote has no taste at all. The coffee was good.

This looked a good spot in a charming village, but the food was overpriced and poor, mostly just warmed up. The service was ok but the overall experience left a sour taste, also no set meal option. Taking advantage of the tourists.

Best lunch on Corsica so far. Really good, fresh, tasty and perfect flavors 👍And a lovely and relaxing atmosphere. We really recommend to take a brake here, eat and take a walk around this beautiful little village.

Local restaurant in harbour area, good fresh food. Frequented by locals. Owner gave useful tips on visiting Cap Corse over free glasses of Cedrat liqueur. If you sit near the front hedge you can pretend you are in Le Pirate (which is Michelin starred) but not pay the price!

At the edge of the sea in the quaint village of Erbalunga. The fried squid is excellent and a great way to start your meal.

Rude unwelcoming staff, pncey menu. We suspect the chef is rather smug, and unaware he's way out of date
