The restaurants recommended in this blog have all been visited by me and my wife and often with friends. We have visited them at least once. I only recommend restaurants that have a quality that, in my opinion, makes them worth a visit.
Some are world class restaurants, some are very simple, but the food is always worth the price and the chefs have prepared it with pride and love of good food.
The food is essential for being mentioned here. Minor problems when it comes to service and other things are mentioned but does not disqualify them from being recommended.
We have also eaten in some restaurants in the area that do not leave any memories worth writing about.
Finally we have been to very few bad restaurants and have been badly serviced in a few.
These three categories are marked differently in List of Restaurants.
marks our special restaurants. On the map they are found by the red marks and in the search term list under coup de ceur

L'ISULA

L'ISULA - 7 rue Clémencau, Calvi, Corsica

We were a bit tired of eating fish every day so we decided to eat meat this evening. We ordered what we thought would be their best meat-dish. They asked how we wanted it cooked and we were expecting something extra as it was file with white truffles. When the meat came it was heavily over-cooked. Mine was medium, which was ordered red and my wife's, which was ordered medium  was well done, totally dry and grey. We should have ordered fish as other people did and they were very happy with their meals.

The waiter was devastated and offered to give us new meat, but as we had to wait forever for our food and was really hungry we finished most of it despite the quality. We did not want to wait for another 20 minutes.

The waiter was very nice and she only charges us for one meal. We think it was just a misfortune, that was not typical for the restaurant. The dessert was very good and the cheese we got was also very good.
