Yes, I've read all the Corsican threads. Most are a few years old now, so I was wondering if anyone had been more recently and would care to offer up any comments/reports/tips?
The following places sounded interesting in previous threads. If anyone has any updates, or any comments at all, on them, they'd be gratefully received.
Flora or Chez Flora, on the D82 or D2 (anyone got more precise info on this?)
Le Pirate (http://www.restaurantlepirate.com/)
Ferme d'Urbino, Ghisonnaccia (Haute-Corse),
Ferme Auberge Mare e Monti, Murato. I wonder if the poster got the name wrong, I can find mention of similarle named places online, but not this. Do you mean Ferme Auberge de Campo di Monte, Murato? Any more accurate details?
Auberge Santa Barbara
A Stella di Rustino, 0495387709 in vilage of Valle-di-Rostino,
Plus these from an old NYT article
Le Pain de Sucre on the packed Plage de Sainte-Restitude
Ustaria A Stonda, Sagone
A Pasturella Place du Village, Monticello
I'd also be delighted to hear any other suggestions. I'd probably favour rustic, auberge-y type places, traditional cooking showing sympathetic use of good local ingredients and friendly receptions. But we're open to anything and as there are so few recommendations on this thread, respond with any recommendations you have for the benefit of others.
We're camping in our VW van. so any food-shopping tips are welcome too - great weekly food markets, particular producers (a previous poster mentioned a cured sausage maker) for example.
We're planning on concentrating on the northern half of the island, but if there's somewhere in the south you love, throw it in. You never know!
