This may have been the best meal I have ever had. 3 course, fish soup, grilled prawns with risotto, and traditional chestnut cake. Add a luscious local Corsican white wine by colombu and what could be better.

This is a interesting place! It won't win any hygiene awards! There are thick cobwebs behind the bar and the place is generally dusty. The owner cuts the meat and bread to have with your wine with a cigar in his mouth and he smokes this continually and you can smoke at your table. Non smokers beware!

The charcuterie meats are very peppery so you will need to taste lots of wines!

No English is spoken by the owner or the regulars! So good for practising ordering wine in French, the lesson I can remember !

However the atmosphere relaxed and fun and we tasted some great wines and I loved the Muscat which I bought a bottle of for 13. Euros.
