Where to Eat:
5 of My Favourite
Ajaccio Restaurants

On an island heavily influenced by both France and Italy, the bar for cuisine is high—and Ajaccio restaurants deliver. Below, a few of my favourites.

Le Bistrot d’Emile

6, rue de l’Assomption, tel +33 4 95 51 00 81
This wine bar/bistro is relaxed and welcoming, with a small but well-chosen menu and of course a great selection of Corsican wines to whet your palate.  Good both for aperitifs and to nibble some lonzu or for a nice casual dinner.

Le 20134

2, rue Roi de Rome, tel +33 4 95 21 50 05
Named for the postal code from the owner’s home village, when you enter this restaurant you step into a mountain village square !  Hearty, traditional dishes served with Corsican pride.

Le Bilboq (Chez Jean-Jean)

2, rue des Glacis, tel +33 4 95 51 35 48
A one-dish wonder, but what a wonder : fresh-caught langouste (spiny lobster), only open when they are in season and served is the simplest, most delicious way.  Count on 80€ or more per person for the lobster alone, despite the simple setting – but pure deliciousness!

Le Pampasgiolu

15, rue de la Porta, tel +33 4 95 50 71 52
A Gault&Millau favourite, with Corsican dishes ranging from big platters to share to a “tour of the island” with dishes adapted to please visitors.  Nice terrace to boot.

A Nepita

4, rue San Lazaro, tel +33 4 95 26 75 68
MUST be booked ahead. A more contemporary and creative spot, many locals’ favourite: a truly gastronomic restaurant with a sense of style. Quality ingredients prepared with imagination.
