A committed restaurant

The hotel has its own restaurant. Justine, chef de cuisine, and Cédric, producer and fervent defender of island gastronomy, will be delighted to help you discover contemporary Corsican cuisine. With 3 choices of starters, main courses and desserts and a menu that changes daily according to the arrival and the seasons, you only have to treat yourself.

The products are local and for the most part come from the island, even directly from the inn’s farm: pig breeding, vegetable garden and laying hens. Thus, a fisherman from Corsica provides the fish, a local sheepfold takes care of the cheeses and the other meats like veal, lamb and poultry are also raised on the island of Beauty.

For your breakfasts, you will also have the pleasure to discover something else than a buffet of industrial products. Jams, compotes, yoghurts, cakes and many other dishes are home-made. To limit food waste, the Auberge Kallisté does not offer an all-you-can-eat buffet and proposes a breakfast served at the table.
