Restaurant du Golfe, Tizzano

Tizzano is known as ‘the port at the end of the world’ and it’s easy to see why as it really wasn't too busy even in August. We’d looked at the menus for Chez Antoine (too much sushi for my taste) and the Restaurant l’Escale (fully booked), so we wandered back towards the village and came across the Restaurant du Golfe.

It didn’t look much at first, but when we looked at the menu, we decided that this was the one for us! We also realized that the terrace was the place to be, and managed to grab the last table right on the water front. From here we had a fabulous view of the sea and the boats moored in the bay. The sunset was just stunning, and we had to stop eating every now and then to take yet another photo as the colours just got better and better.

Choosing what to eat was tricky as there was so much choice; goats cheese crustinis, sanglier (wild boar), local veal and a whole range of seasonal seafood dishes depending on the catch of the day. I really fancied the sanglier but that is more of a winter dish and it was still so hot, that I was almost relieved when they said it was sold out. In the end, we both chose the Linguini de St. Jacques et Pancetta Fume (pasta with scallops and smoked bacon in a creamy tomato sauce).

The dishes were tasty and well presented, and offered good value for money. Fortunately we’d both left room for dessert which was equally scrumptious; homemade apple tart with ice cream and a crème brulee with myrte (a liqueur). I think we’ll be back.
