Brasserie Kosten

Address: Les 4 Portes, 20137 Porto-Vecchio
Tel: 04 95 70 20 50

Trendy, with lots of glass and monochromatic, shiny surfaces, the minimalist Brasserie Kosten sits in a non-descript shopping centre that could be anywhere from California to Sweden. In fact the name and design have a decidedly Nordic feel to them. Not really in keeping with ultra-Mediterranean Corsica, and I probably wouldn’t have chosen this brasserie to eat at, if not for 1) the price, in comparison to the majority of Porto-Vecchio restaurants, is reasonable, 2) several year-long residents of Porto-Vecchio had recommended it, and 3) almost everything else was closed because it was off-season. The food is very international: lots of pasta, with a wide choice of sauces; a wide variety of grilled fish; and multitudes of salads. I’m certain in the summer that it’s filled with Italians, who favour the eastern shore of the island, particularly Porto-Vecchio and its surrounding beaches. Another reason I selected to eat here is that they offer Clos Canarelli (see 'Wine Producers') wine by the glass, permitting you to sample a variety of his white and red vintages.
