With high expectations we arrived the 31th of july at U Fanale. But when it seemed that our waitress (girl with blond painted hair) really didnt feel like working and just really wanted to go home, it gave us an unpleasant unwelcome feeling. She almost...More

Our 5th visit over 10 years, and still one of our favorite restaurants on Corsica. It is also a Michelin restaurant in 2017. The outfdoor terrace is nicely lighted and situated - bring a sweater, sometimes the wind picks up. The food was excellent -...More
