The 3 course menu of 21 euro was good. Had a nice meat plate as a starter, and the dorado fish main was succulent. The a la carte pasta with gambas was basic (for 26 euro) but very tasty! The crème brulee dessert was a bit lumpy, but maybe that's the Corsican way. Waitress was very friendly.

We visited this little restaurant tonight and have to recommend it if visiting l'Ile Rousse. Friendly service and great vegetable lasagna, duck dish also very good and if your up to it the 21 euro menu great value. Quiet street adds to experience.

The restaurant and service are simple but the 3 course menu at 21€ was delicious. Good wines bit expensive. All dishes are cooked with fresh local products. The lasagna with wild pork was a killer, best ever lasagna I had. I definitely recommend.

Menu is very affordable and almost everything is homemade. The "brocciu beignets" are really delicious. Service is friendly and it is nice to seat outside in a quiet street.

Typical 3 course corse menus in 2 price levels, packed restaurant. Good selection on the menu, good food. I didnt like that the french couple next to us got their coffee before us even though they ordered later and ours was not forgotten. I was more annoyed that the credit card machine didnt work for us (the same for a... More

Nice restaurant in the center of Ile Rousse. No towel, cutlery left on the table after each dish. Menus at 21 and 37 euros. We took the 21 menu and food was just acceptable. Probably the best dishes are on the other menu. Very smart idea: it looks like a cheap restaurant for travel guides, but the best dishes are... More

We loved this restaurant so much we came back twice. Cheese balls with mint and fish soup starters, boar lasagne and courgette risotto mains, all delicious and served with real panache and humour.

Excelent food and wine (we had the menue). If you wasn't to try Corsican flavours try the charkuterie and cheese. Excellent service!

Found this place on Trip Advisor and it was quite good. I enjoyed all the food but I highly recommend these cheese ball/rissole things for an entree. I can't remember their real name but they were so amazing!
