We were warmly greeted and sat by the window with a great view. An English menu was provided. We ordered the Bouillabaisse. It was dark, rich with an intense flavour of seafood and herbs. The fish was perfectly cooked. Was it worth €50? Sure was.

This restaurant is located in what we considered the most beautiful part of Marseille - a tiny cove of a port, nestled behind a picturesque aquaduct. The seafood was lovely, service great and the bouillabaisse wonderful - although very pricy.

The restaurant's location is wonderful, but overall it was a disappointing experience. The service was very poor: we got the wrong kind of oysters, the table next to us was eating 10 minutes earlier than we did despite having arrived 15 minutes earlier (only 4...More

Very nice diner with friends. Difficult to choose in the menu indeed. I had lively bourride. A friend of mine was less satisfied by a turbo with pancetta dish. Very nice cafe gourmand and ice cream to finish. The small fishing dock gives a flavor...More
