Hearty, functional food with solid, good quality ingredients, sometimes with an innovative twist. Some tasty Corsican specialities. Lacking the flavours and sophistication its high prices would warrant. Friendly service, lovely decor and fun surroundings in a small central square.

We really enjoyed our meal there. Be warned...you need a reservation. We saw lots of people being turned away because the restaurant was already full when it opened at 19:30 hrs. Food is excellent, well presented and the service is first class. The house wine is inexpensive and also very good. We recommend strongly.

Unless you book your table in advance, you will end up queuing. But it is worth suffering as the dishes and the atmosphere are really excellent. Excellent Corsican and Mediterranean dishes, which you may have tried before, but chances are high that they will taste much better here. Recommended !

We had dinner at L'Archivolto while stopping on our sailboat cruise in Bonifacio. The restaurant is in a small road next to the main church in the old town of Bonifacio. The menu is exquisite and everything we have ordered was just fantastic. The service was also very nice and prices are pretty ok (and not expensive as in the... More

The service is friendly and the decor eclectic and in fact a real delight but there's no denying that as much as we wanted to love the food, we were a little disappointed. Some elements of the main dishes that should have been warm, were not and the cheeses were cold - as if just taken out of the fridge;... More

Delightful restaurant with a warm welcome from the owners who speak good English if needed. Unique ambience with assorted antiques. Excellent choice of menu, we particularly enjoyed the starter with baked apple and goat's cheese, aubergine lasagna and chocolate brownie for dessert. Definitely worth reserving a table as we saw Lots of people being turned away disappointed. Would definitely eat... More

Delphine made us very welcome, and the outdoor seating is a little more private than just being in the narrow street. Good selection of food, all well explained and translated. One of our best meals in Bonifacio.
