This decades-old Ajaccio icon is famous for two things: grilled lobster flambéed in cognac, and spaghettis à la langouste (spaghetti with lobster), savoured alfresco in a cobblestoned square or in two cosy upstairs rooms spread with colourful carpets and hung with vintage photos of Ajaccio celebrities. Don't miss peeking into the kitchen, housed in a 17th-century brick-vaulted former Genoese stable.

Knock it all down with a well-chosen Corsican wine, and enter seventh heaven.
