Authentic and local cuisine
In the restaurant l'Auguste, our chef offers brasserie-type cuisine, honoring the typical specialties of Corsica. Our menu permanently contains 5 to 6 starters and main courses, as well as 3 to 4 desserts, to which are added from May to September menus renewed every week depending on arrivals.
To cook delicacies such as the famous Bonifacian eggplant, bouillabaisse, cannellonis with brocciu, Corsican cabri or a creamy fiadone, the chef relies on the flagship products of Bonifacio and Corsica:
- fish from local fishing, provided in particular by the fisherman Philippe Botti, based in Bonifacio,
- Corsican cheese produced in Bonifacio by Joseph Terrazzoni,
- Corsican charcuterie (mainly produced by the breeding of black pigs in Cuzzanaccia, located in Cozzano),
- fruits and vegetables from local market gardeners...
