Café WHA! (Bastia)

For a change of palate, head to Bastia's lovely marina area and indulge in the spicy flavours of Mexican cuisine. It doubles as a lively pub after dark, with colourful cocktails and delicious bar food over sports screenings or loud music.


Corsican cuisine has historically relied heavily on local products and ingredients, and those traditions are still very much alive today. Seafood is understandably pervasive, but meat, particularly pork, is an island staple, famous worldwide for its characteristic flavour. Local animals are fed a steady diet of chestnuts, another ubiquitous Corsican ingredient, and maquis herbs.
