Wonderful food, beautiful view and great staff. Limited English spoken but drawing pictures and the staff going to the kitchen to take pictures to show us the food was half the fun

Good food, nice service, speaking english. The meals are not overly big, however, you can feel the restaurant being rather high end. The place is nice and the atmosphere is quiet. We have enjoyed our evening and the food.

It's a tiny family run restaurant right on the beach of Le Forna. It's set in an amazing landscape, reachable only by boat from the nearby beaches or through a path in the reef. The menu is quite simple and the offer of food is limited as everything they have is fresh and can be prepared only if the ingredients are available. The best dish they offer (remarkable) is called "Brivido di pesce" (shiver of fish), which consists in a chevice of mixed fish and spiced with local herbs. Their telephone number is 0771.808752 and it's only open in summer.
