Sorry we stopped but needed wifi. Didnt serve food and wi-fi was terrible and owner/server was disinterested. Skip it!

A Merendella Citadina

Reviewed By mvanroy7

Without checking Tripadvisor and just casually wandering through the small streets of Ajaccio looking for a good place for lunch, we were immediately attracted to this restaurant. Because of its good location (a narrow alley, the walls of the houses giving shadow to the terrace) and because of the attractive menu. We tried out the codfish and the duck, the little one went for the hamburger. We were all happy with our choice. Presentation was top, food was delicious and a bit special. The codfish was e.g. prepared in the grease of the duck. The duck was served with a nice sweet potato mash. The Clos culombu rosé wine gave us the refreshment we needed. The tiramisu dessert was a bit less special but still good. Service was also perfect, right speed and with humor. In the end we got a digestif from the house. Highly recommended.

Auberge Colomba

Reviewed By Woodie0

We wanted to have lunch where sardines were served and this lovely aubergine had them on the menu. They were cooked to perfection and accompanied by delicious vegetables and plenty of them. The owner and staff were very pleasant. The restaurant itself is very nice and belowarm ground but there is a small alfresco area on the street. Well worth a visit.

SeyM Restaurant

Reviewed By Rodney17

This thoroughly refined restaurant exceeded all expectations and proved a welcomed relief from the shabbiness and tourist frenzy down the hill.For slightly less than €100 euros, we indulged ourselves with their three course lunch special at €34pp plus drinks on the gorgeous outside terrace.Every course was sublime with charming service to match even catering for our near zero French language skills.The restaurant is relatively small and seems popular with Ajaccio’s well heeled and reservations strongly recommended.(If you want to avoid the near kilometre walk up hill from the old town take the Petit Train from Place Foch and the return after your meal)

The menu is small only two choices per course therefore everything is fresh and beautifully cooked to your specification. We had one pregnant lady in our party and it was absolutely no trouble for the chef to accommodate her. Wine recommendations were good. All in all the best meal we had in Ajaccio. Location nice slightly out of old town about 10 minute easy walk.

A Cantina Di Ghjulia

Reviewed By davesouthamptonqpr

We came here through Trip Advisor reviews aware that a lot of places in the old town lack authenticity. It’s quite expensive, so we went for the set menu at 32 Euro. It’s 3 courses. My wife doesn’t eat sweet things so we asked if cheese could replay pudding. No problem. So we had fish soup followed by fish of the day which was moustelle, a local boy. Both dishes were lovely. I had a home made flan and my wife the excellent local cheese. We also had a bottle of Corsican white. Really good. Friendly and attentive family staff.

Le Bistrot Gourmand

Reviewed By 461clarej

In Ajaccio for 7 nights we were left disappointed by our first 3 dinners in various restaurants (Roi de Rome, L’Altru Versu, and St Pierre) but then came Le Bistrot Gourmand. Everything we’d been looking for.Beautiful freshly cooked food, charming service including a lovely explanation of the blackboard menu, a surprise amuse bouche, the best wine of the trip so far, and to top it off an amazing value for money set price for 3 courses (think it was 39 Euros but would have happily paid 49). My caprese type salad starter was the best I’ve ever had, and my husband’s pork tart really knocked his socks off. The fillet steaks 10 out of 10 accompanied by delicious sauté potatoes, and the chocolate fondant for afters, wow!It was all so impressive that we’re breaking our rule of always going somewhere different for dinner and are going back in 2 nights time. Can’t wait! Do book, it’s rightly popular (and have an aperitif in Chez Gerard by the coast opposite first or a coffee there after, great vibe and a great piano player).
