unpleasant experience: horrible service, average food, a number of items advertised on the sidewalk are not available inside, avoid this restaurant la barcarolle in bastia.

We went there as many others did, because the freshly caught fish on display seemed appealing. The place is well located on Bastias old harbor main quay and seemed to offer several nice menus at affordable prices. Once the sun set and us seated, we...More
