Bonifacio / southern Corsica report

Restaurant version maquis citadelle: breathtaking view of the bonifacio citadelle and the mountains of Sardinia with excellent and creative food to match. Highly recommend.

L’an faim: located at the beginning of the steps from the port to the upper town. Sister restaurant to version maquis citadelle. Also high quality. Particularly outstanding is the foie gras starter.

Stella d’oro. In the upper town and has a shuttle service. Nice fresh fish (though with a somewhat overpowering sauce) and lobsters from the tank looked good though we didn’t get one. Upstairs and downstairs dining rooms and was mostly full on a Saturday night. Friendly service.

Chez ciccio. Upper town. Had lunch here without a reservation. Good salad of greens with bits of local jambon avocado and sheep’s cheese.

Playa baggia at palombaggia beach. Friendly service but food (whole fish) was just ok.

U Santa marina at Santa giulia beach. Excellent salad that included large shrimp and several kinds of melon and burrata and local jam on. This is the beach restaurant of a Michelin Star that is open for dinner. Use the public parking lot (5 euros) and walk five minutes. Otherwise no parking nearby.

Rocca serra gelato (bonifacio). Several locations in port and upper town. The sorbets made from local ingredients. were great. The gelati were a bit too sweet for me.
