If you like shellfish this is the place to go. Long stalls outside sell a wide random of oysters, whelks, clams, crabs, lobsters..... Inside, most of these are served raw, which is the local practice. They so served cooked fish, and chips. Terrific. There is a sister/ brother? establishment in Marseille.

The Toinou was recommended to us by Best Western Hotel staff where we were staying before leaving Marseille to cruise the Greek Islands with France Croisières. This is a really good fish and sea food restaurant, we ate there before and after our cruise. The food is great, the service excellent and it is so relaxing. Would certainly recommend you... More

One of my favorite place for business lunch or dinner with friends! Good service, excellent choice of oysters, fresh fish cooked your way, and the white wine cuvée Toinou is delicious too! They have also a fabulous fresh seafood stand on the parking lot!!!

We went for dinner here , ordered seafood soup,for starters, it arrived in a mug, very watery,needed seasoning.,my friend ordered fish and chips, myself, mussels and chips, chips were very large with each meal and noticed with a lot of other diners, very dry and hard to digest. Mussels were so tiny, no flavour, perhaps we caught them on a... More

The restaurant itself is set up in a canteen manner, I ordered the calamari and it was delightful!! It tasted so fresh and amazing, the level of freshness of the food is illustrated by the fresh seafood stall just outside the restaurant. My friends ordered the sea bass and they were also agreed how fresh and delightful the food was.

First of all, it is excellent value. We paid €41 there today for 16 oysters 'of exception' ie 4 x 4 high end varieties which were huge in size and faultless in taste. We also had 12 large crevettes for 2€ a piece on our platter after a starter of 6 mussels a la persillade each as they had run... More

We had two great meals there and impeccable service even if the place was packed. I suggest one reserves during the weekend.

Place is not the best in beautiful Aix en Provence, as the restaurant is located outside ... In a residential area! The place is a modern fish market with a huge restaurant! Food is great simple but wow seafood... A crazy oyster choice!!! Staff is young and dynamic! Great casual place.
