Petite Marie is is a totally interesting restaurant in Bastia, very different from the others in the area. Run by a husband and wife, named after their granddaughter and featuring several signs of grand-parental pride (something with which we can easily identify), this small restaurant attracts a diverse clientele with an abiding interest in langoustines.

We dined there on Thursday Oct. 4, 2012, were the only English speakers present, and had a great time. My plate was heaped to overflowing with grilled and herbed langoustines. Our interactions with the owners and other patrons were positive and the price was reasonable - approximately 75 for the two of us, including a bottle of wine, one dessert and two espressos. A highlight of our time in Bastia! Go there if you want to try langoustines!
