Arrived just before sunset, walked around the little fishing village past Fon Fon and the others, and into this oasis of calm and elegance. Everything is beautifully designed and executed. Service superb. We both had the bouillabaise and it was superb. After we had the soupe de poission, they offered us some more and we accepted, so they brought an... More

We’d come across this restaurant in an article from an English travel writer and booked. The following Saturday we arrived for lunch at the small port of Vallon des Auffes having walked from our accommodation in the district of Endoume. From the outside the restaurant looked nothing special but it’s position was enviable. We were warmly welcomed at the entrance... More

We went there for Easter lunch. The menu was set beforehand and we loved it. The food was fish-based as you would expect from a seafront restaurant on the French riviera and was excellent. It is quite difficult to get there and parking is quite a feat!

Having visited Marseille in February we weren't putting too much focus on the locale or settings for dinners out, thinking it would have no real impact on our dining experiences at this time of year. Not so the case at L'Epuisette, we had a wonderful meal here made all the more enjoyable by the water side setting and fascinating glass... More

It seems that three factors strive for the prize of excellence here - service, ambiance/view and cuisine. And they all come together harmoniously and sans effort in one of the most fantastic restaurants nestled into a sort of cove in Marseille, reminiscent of Edmond Dantes and the Abbe Faria. The literary diner will think Count of Monte Cristo as he... More

We waited 35mins to be given a menu and in the end had to ask for it, also had to ask for a wine list, twice, were not given greeting drinks unlike all of the surrounding tables. The service was generally disorganised, half hearted and slow, certainly nowhere near the standard you'd expect for an expensive restaurant with a Michelin... More

We went there on a sunny winter day in February on a corporate trip. Location of the restaurant is right seefront, close to a small harbour/wharf (cross the street to go down and to find the entrance of the restaurant which is not at street level). The amuses, starters Bouillabaisse as well as the dessert served are at a very... More

Impeccable service only matched by incredible array of seafood dishes. We had to try a few different dishes amongst our group that included the sea bass, bouillabaisse, and turbot. The freshness and preparation was top notch. Would highly recommend for a true seafood experience and excellent service.

We came to Marseilles in part to eat here, and we loved it. The amuse bouche were a slice of green apple with fois gras, an octopus terrine, and a hot chestnut cream filled shell. The Bouillabaisse was terrific, and was proceeded by a very memorable mince of mussels in a thin octopus wrapper. On the menu side, the scallop... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with a magnificent view and wonderful food. The service is friendly, helpful and efficient. Finding the restaurant was an adventure since the taxi driver didn't how to take us down to the wharf/jetty where the restaurant is located.
