Our waiter recommended a regional wine, cheese fritters for the appetizer, rack of lamb, and creme bruelle trio. All were exceptional as was the service. High over Bastia with a wonderful view & well worth the drive up.

Hotel restaurant in San Martino di Lota. Beautiful terrace overlooking the see and the surrounding hills. Food is good and wine list is extensive. Excellent service. Prices are relatively high but reasonable in the context.

Stayed here our first night in Corsica. Nice drive from Bastia. Beautiful outdoor setting with magic view over Italian Islands. Great service, great local food and reasonable priced dinner (in my view). Buffet breakfast in the morning was also good value.
