This is definitely one of the best if not the best restaurant in Marseille. Everything about this restaurant is top class, from the moment you you enter the door until you leave. The service is really friendly, top sommelier, smiling waiters and very laid back atmosphere. Location is great, the restaurant itself very comfortable, good space between tables, top wineglasses...

I am usually suspicious with restaurants that gave a great view, this one is the exception. The absolutely fabulous specifically for sunset where the sun sets literarily in the restaurant! As for the food there are several menu options i took the Marius 95€, a 5 courses menu around fish which finishes with an exquisite bouillabaisse. The young staff is... More

A stunning location, take the first park place you find…; but once there: Great gourmet's carte, try the " lobster tajine " on of the chef's signature dish. Fine wine list. Ask for a table close to a window and you'll eat over the water surrounded by the Marseille's bay. A place to go and come back.

Fabulous restaurant in a wonderful location on the sea front next to a delightful rocky bay. I would guess it an old boat shed. We came here about 8 years ago on recommendation from the maitre d' of the 3* Petit Nice. It was good then but now much better. If you have to have it, the only place in... More

Was looking forward to this meal and it didn't disappoint. The service was top notch, the food was spectacular and the sommelier recommended a very nice local wine to accompany my lunch with. I traveled all the way from NYC to eat in this restaurant, and would do so again. When the Chef heard this he made a point to... More

Wow. L'Epuisette is a great restaurant with a setting beside a tiny, secluded fishing quay hidden under an arched bridge. The Menu Fanny is a seven course treat, including white beer ice cream and an artichoke cappucinno. The meal was innovative, very tasty and served in sublime surroundings. The jellyfish paper light shades are very clever, the staff were warm... More

This really is a special restaurant and is down below the road level about 10 mins in a taxi from the Old Port, with all round views of the sea. It's amazing seafood, and the service is exceptional. Lots of tasters and amuse bouche. As you would expect it is expensive and they will take a €50 deposit per person... More

Very nice place (vallon des Auffes) with sea view, food and service are excellent. I recommend ten "Marseille" menu with the "bouillabaisse". The best I have ever eaten. A little bit expensive but still very good value for money.

Wonderful place, just at the sea. We chose for the Caesar Menu; one of my best food experience, lot of research on a taste point of view and presentation. Service friendly but they don't follow exactly the "rules" of serving in a one star Michelin. Two points to be taken in consideration; access by car and parking difficult and wines... More
