You should try this restaurant, as it has nothing to do with the others in Ota-Porto. The staff is very nice, the food too: I personally took the Spaghetty with seafood, which were abundant and delicious. My boyfriend went for the meat, which was equally good. Don't miss the desserts! The "torte" was really amazing. And it is on the beach, so you eat listening to the waves :)

We had sardine were dry and old. Discusting. The soup was average. The seabass was not tasty. Waist of money. The house wine horrible.

Before I rave about U Pescadore's fish soup may I point out Tripadvisor's current photo for U Pescadore is actually another restaurant entirely. If you look at the awning you can see it's the terrace of the Hotel Le Romantique on the other side of the river. You can check this out by comparing with other listings of Hotel Le Romantique and I can verify this having sat on that very terrace last week.

Please see my own photos of the real U Pescadore and forget the pretty views of the harbour. U Pescadore is actually a beach shack located at the back of Porto's (pebble) beach and because of the slope of the beach you can hear the waves but not see them. To get there by car from the D81 through Porto follow signs for 'rive gauche' and the main parking area, then walk on to the beach; to reach the beach on foot from Porto's main hotel area use the footbridge over the river.

We were there to eat langouste (spiny lobster) which is available priced by the 100g (weigh scales next to the tank) but we opted for the 3-course langouste menu at 52 Euros per head, which seems to be the standard price for this menu anywhere on Corsica for May 2013.

Starter was possibly the best fish soup we have ever had, served in a tureen sufficient for 3 large portions each and an enormous plate of croutons of toasted baguette, grated cheese, rouille (a spicy, garlicky mayo) and unpeeled cloves of garlic should we wish to peel them and rub on the croutons.

There followed a generous portion (I'm guessing 250g - 300g each) of delicious grilled langouste served with a bowl of mayonnaise and salad garnish.

Sadly, desserts were disappointing. My tarte aux pommes was very ordinary and my husband's fruit salad seemed to have come from a can. We should have opted for cheese; still, overall, a good meal.

There are cheaper set menus available and a wide choice a la carte. Meals brought to other tables appeared to be well-presented, and the portions generous.

Service was smiling and efficient.

To use the toilet you need to ask for the key.

A short walk from the tourist center of Porto is a small beach, and on the beach is the restaurant you've been looking for. We walked in for a beer and a glass of wine in the late afternoon, after they stopped serving lunch. It looked like the sort of place locals might go, so we asked the woman who runs it if she could recommend a restaurant for dinner. In loud French, she announced that we had asked the one dumbest question she'd heard in a while. Yes, she could; the one we were sitting in. Come back later, she said (sort of). We did and had the best and freshest fish we've had since coming to Corsica. It's a wonderful place with terrific service and fine, simple food. Skip the tourist spots and you won't be sorry.
