La Vieille Cave is a nice restaurant with a lovely terrace. The interior is really cosy, but since it was such a beautiful summer evening when we visited, we preferred sitting outside. We started our meal with the cocktail of the day: a cucumber cooler. Lovely! While enjoying our cocktail we ordered the combination of main course and dessert for 23 euro. I went for the risotto with asparagus and octopus. I always enjoy a well made risotto and this risotto was excellent with the octopus tender and not chewy. I also had a taste of the duck my friend ordered and the meat was also very tasty.
Service was friendly and very efficient. We got our main course when we were still drinking our cocktail. Our waitress made one tiny mistake: my boyfriend ordered his moelleux without whipped cream, but it arrived with whipped cream. No big deal, so we didn’t complain. As a dessert I ordered the famous Corsican cheeses. Obviously you can’t go wrong with that.
I can really recommend this place. Excellent food for a decent price. I do think it is necessary to book a table in the weekend. When we visited on a week day the terrace was almost full of people. La Vieile Cave is clearly a popular place te have dinner.
