A relaxed evening in a restaurant in the ambienced Market district, a beautiful table on the quays of the Old Port of Bastia and in refined establishments... the Pays Bastiais knows how to combine gastronomy, inventiveness and typicity.
Marrying a distinguished terroir that offers its share of bewitching flavours, the Bastiaise region no longer counts its culinary specialities from tradition and its territory. It concentrates the products among the best of the island which are found in the plates of its restaurants. And it is not by chance that the Basque Country has five master restaurateurs out of the ten distinguished in the Haute-Corse department.
In just a few years, many of its establishments have been able to attract the favour of the various Bibles of French gastronomy. Some of them hold an undisputed place in the famous Michelin Guide whose stars shine in the sky of the Bastian Country, while others are regularly distinguished for the inventiveness of their menu based on Corsican gastronomy and the local know-how inherent in typical local dishes.
A rich culinary tradition that often nourishes establishments with family, home, seasonal cuisine, where you are welcomed with a smile and a zest of sympathy to share, even beyond their cuisine, a piece of Corsica.
