Spring of 2016, starred-chef Romuald Royer and his team have set up home on the rue de Rome, between the sea and the Diamant square and only a few steps from the Citadel. More than a restaurant, Mani – Nourritures Terrestres (for Earthly Foods), as it is named in full, is a gourmet, joyous and lively place. As soon as you enter the bistro chic, design decoration will catch your eye. Warm wall colours give out a sense of well-being, just like the various plants spread all over the dining room.
At a stand-up table, snack on a few delicious tapas and pre-dinner drinks, before seating at one of the tables – outdoor or indoor, the choice is yours – to try the restaurant's speciality: veal burger with Bearnaise sauce and Savora. Unless you would prefer a toasted ham and cheese sandwich in a brioche, or stir-fried octopus. As a bonus, bread is also entirely homemade. Two major desserts will make it very hard to choose: a chocolate cream in fleur de sel and olive oil, or the strawberry shortbread with thyme and a tad of white chocolate… which will it be? Ask for a glass of Corsican wine to be paired with your meal as the ultimate refinement. Your gourmet break on the Isle of Beauty will undoubtedly be unforgettable.
