In the Land of Bouillabaisse and costly Fruits de Mer, this little restaurant is a breath of fresh air. We had a set menu for dinner with three choices for each course. Perfect for this style of restaurant. Starters were elegant and very well prepared and included scallops with a delicious celeriac purée, langoustine ravioli and a fish and crab... More

Worth the price for fresh seafood artfully prepared. No English menu (not a tourist trap) and the staff were great about translating for us. Sea bass and linguine with prawns were both phenomenal.

Food was good. Staffs can speak English but limited. Staffs were friendly to find me a table despite not having a reservation. I had the soupe de poisson, very Provencal. A bit fishy for me, but it was still a pleasant experience. I also had some huitres (oysters) which were really good, paired with a nice bottle of Bandol white,... More

The food was good but the choices and portions are limited and the prices are high. I guess that makes it relatively authentic. The only thing we found frustrating was the main meal price on the board was higher on our bill. We didn't say anything as didn't want to create a fuss especially as they'd given us a free... More

We went there for lunch. The salmon was perfectly cooked with delicious vegetables. The risotto was to die for and the table white wine was delicious. Our favorite restaurant in Marseille. Skip all the other touristy restaurants along the quai and come to this one!!

As opposed to the many over-priced and mediocre restaurants around the Vieux Port in Marseille, this is a gem. While not cheap, it is reasonable and the food is outstanding. We had the crab topped with guacamole, sea bass and swordfish, all of which were delicious. Would definitely go again.

The food and wine was great, and the staff were very helpful. Great service and food! Cheyme was especially helpful in helping me navigate around the city and giving me great suggestions for where to shop! An overall, wonderful dining experience.

We went there during our trip in Marseille based on the comments on tripadvisor and we had the most delicious fish plate. It was more expensive than the surrounding restaurants, but the quality makes up for that! It's a bit a pity that they do not work with a menu neither (but that's personal). I would go back and recommend... More

We found this amazing place though trip advisor and decided to go check it out. When we came we were greeted by some very nice people. We booked a reservation for dinner and explored the magnificent area known as the "vieux port". When we came back the waiters and waitresses greeted us with friendly smiles. We ordered the fish of...

Checked in TripAdvisor for the best restaurants in Marseille and found it in the way from Port St Jane to Old Port. Easy to find, terrace is nice and the most important is that grilled seabass- the fish for the day was excellent. Worth to go.
