Le Tahiti: “Beach restaurant”

Cute bar and restaurant located on the beach of Porto. You can just come here for drinks and relax in the lounge chairs or have lunch or dinner at the tables. The location is great and the staff is very friendly.

We started our dinner with two mojito’s, which were ok, but did not contain that much alcohol. I ordered a salad with salmon, shrimp and avocado and my boyfriend went for a burger Napoleon. The salad was very basic. Good, but not very creative. My boyfriend liked his burger. We had some nice rosé, ideal for a hot summer evening.

As a dessert I had raspberry soup with vanilla ice cream. Really enjoyable.

La Voute: “Lovely restaurant which serves honest food”

La Voûte is a charming local restaurant in the town of Piana. Piana, besides from its lovely church, is not very memorable. Restaurant La Voûte serves really honest authentic food. We had dinner on the terrace the evening the French team played a European Championship match, so naturally the restaurant had provided a big screen to watch the tournament. Luckily the sound was turned down so the match wasn’t to distracting.

We went for the menu of the day (starter, main course, cheese, and dessert), which was both excellent and cheap. Wine included we only payed 61 euros for two persons. Portions were very big, so no need to fear that you’ll get hungry any time soon after having eaten at La Voûte.

As a starter I had the traditional Corsican fish soup. The fish of the day was presented on a plate by the waiter so we could choose the fish we liked most. I went for the dorade. The fish was super fresh but it would have been nice if the fish had been served with more vegetables than only potatoes.

For me personally, the main course arrived too soon after the starter. Would have been nice to have some more time to digest the really big bowl of soup. Especially because the meal included also a cheese course between the main course and the dessert. For dessert I had crème brûlée. You can’t go wrong with that in my book. Really very enjoyable meal for a very good price!
