It is quite obvious when you cross the door that this is a high-end restaurant so the high price should not be a surprise. That said, Marcel is a French-themed restaurant with an elegant decoration and a menu that offers many different options - including a separate lobster menu. The food was delicious, and the view to the beach in... More

Too expensive for not real french food. The food in general is good. The service is not adequate for the price of the food. I would see the restaurant as a "normal" reataurant in any European city with the difference that they ask for top hot cuisine prices.

Good ambiance, very good and professional staff, some differences from the main house in Sao Paulo, especially some local dishes. Excellent souflees. Worth going.

Awesome seasoning. You should try the shrimp with cheese risotto. The Sirigado fish is simply a delicatessen. Whether it is with garlic or a herb sauce, make sure you try this!

Fine french restaurant for a romantic dinner. Try the tasty "Brandade de Morue" (cod cream with gruyere cheese) as entry and the fresh "Le Bar en goujonette Murat" (grilled fish rings with potatos, lettuce, tomato, champignon, and potato cubes). For dessert, we enjoyed a nice "Crepe Normande" (apple-filled flambé on liquor). The interiors were appropriate for special occasions, with a... More

Good location. Nice interior decoration and space. Good service. Really good food with excellent presentation. It was lobster season and they had a special menu with more than ten different plates just dedicated to lobster. Good wine menu. It was my best dinning experience in Fortaleza.

We went for Brazil's match at the 2014 World Cup and had only three nights in town. Marcel was one of the three suggestions. The haddock fish and the shrimps were excellent.
