This restaurant has a great location, great staff and lovely food. It was a little expensive, but we had Paella and it was very good, although a huge portion and we didn't eat it all. A very popular place and gets packed in the evenings, - we arrived early and managed to get a table easily without booking.

Nice staff but food not as good as we remember. Steaks small and despite being described as fillet they were a little chewy. Hopefully just an end of season blip but not there long enough to know for sure.

The first 2 dishes I asked for from the menu, they didn't have so settled for the scallops with leek, very tasty, well presented. My OH had the tagliatelle with king prawn, the dish only contained 2 prawns, but boy were they big, 2 were more than enough! Dessert was good, panna cotta with warm chocolate sauce for me and...

Found this attractive, colourful restaurant by chance. It's tucked away near the top of the old town. Opens from 6:30 which we found helpful. Owner and some staff have perfect English and others try hard. No language 'arrogance' here. The food was so very very fresh and beautifully cooked. They do so 'global' variations too - and get them perfect!... More

Time for a change so saw things on the menu that excited us. Thai based dishes. Great location and decor. Service initially very good then tapered off as it got busier. Food was nice, not what we expected though. Prices also higher than expected. Good night, but could have been more.

We came in 4 with no reservation made. We sat outside looking at people walking on the cobled street. The waiters were kind. The food was of good quality across the different dishes we have chosen. The price was quite reasonable like most restaurants in Ile Rousse.

After reading the reviews i was expecting more. Granted the wait staff were excellent and attentive however the experience was let down by the food. We ordered the paella what a disappointment. The rice was undercooked and the stock was tasteless and the seafood in my opinion was rubbery and overcooked

Excellent food, beautifully presented and good service. We had salmon in filo pastry and entrecôte corse and would recommend both dishes.
