Came across the Jardins de la Paresse by chance on our first night in Porto-Vecchio. What luck! Were given a table where we were both facing the sea (No 4) - what a view! Food was excellent, we had a pizza and a lasagne, both fresh, tasty and well presented. After three days in Corsica the accompanying salad was the... More

We enjoyed a very nice lunch at this restaurant. The view was terrific, and the service was efficient and friendly. We made reservations that morning, since we were unsure how crowded it might become. It is located in a quiet corner, and we found that the better tables filled up fast. The food was prepared very well for a casual... More

This restaurant is located through La Porte Genoise in the Old Town of Porto Vecchio. To gain access you must negotiate very steep stone steps down to 3 separate terraces with wonderful views over the marina. Some tables for 2 were actually placed so that you were looking directly down onto the marina with your back to the restaurant. The... More

Nice idea about sitting in a row and watch the sunset. By the way eating a very delicious meal and enjoyable pizza.

I'm sure a tourist could find a better restaurant in Porto Vecchio. Manservants don't talk english , this is unfortunately frequent in Corsica. Dinner cost was absolutely high compared with our meal selection and other restaurants. The restaurant has a good view of Porto Vecchio, but it can't be enough.

We trudged around Porto Vecchio looking for an evening meal. We went to one restaurant with approx 80 covers, and only about 15 seats being used. The tv was on so we asked to sit around the corner.But there were only tables for 4 so we were told we couldn't sit there !!! So they lost 60 euros plus, as... More

Pizza and salad. Very quick and friendly service. Pizza was OK. Salad was a little gritty. The setting is lovely, well it is in June. If you don't get a panoramic view of the harbour then you still get to sit on a lovely terrace. Certainly worth a visit.

Fantastic setting with a panoramic view over the harbour. Warm welcome, efficient service and good food. We went twice in the space of one week and had a great meal both times, one on each of the terraces.

Beautiful location for a romantic meal. We sat on a table for two looking out over the port and enjoyed a lovely dinner. Portions are generous and dessert can easily be shared. The restaurant is down a number of steps and clings to the side of the hill. The fish and beef were good quality and reasonably priced. Service was... More
