Terra Cotta (Propriano)

If it's fine dining you are looking for, look no further than Terra Cotta — a delightful Michelin-starred restaurant located on the port's quayside. Although the complete dining experience may be costly, it's an investment that's definitely worth it. The skilled chef expertly pairs the island's ingredients with the daily caught fresh seafood, resulting in an array of unexpected and delectable flavors.


Corsican charcuterie is renowned worldwide for its exceptional quality, thanks in large part to the island's unique breed of pigs, which are cross-bred with wild boar and fed on natural chestnuts — a traditional staple that has also made its way into modern cuisine in dishes such as "pulenta" (chestnut porridge) and "fritelli a gaju frescu" (chestnut fritters). Additionally, the island's cuisine features a variety of other local specialities, including fish, seafood, and game. One of the most famous dishes on the island is the "civet de sanglier," a casserole made with wild boar.
