Description: A restaurant specializing in seafood and fish, established since 1973 situated on the pedestrian zone at a couple steps from Place Massena. The establishment is particularly renowned for its quality and freshness of its products, its cuisine and service. You will discover the pleasures in the splendor of our place. Come and taste a gastronomic Mediterranean cuisine. Refined dishes delicately presented that reflect our savoir-faire. Le Boccaccio, a true institution, enjoys a terrace and numerous private dining rooms, however, one must enter to discover the warm and elegant ambiance.

Very much enjoyed this restaurant during lunch. The oysters we ordered as appetizer were delicious and we paired them with a local white Cotes de Provence. The pairing worked very well. We followed with some very good fresh fish. Food was very flavorful, well presented, portions were very generous and service was very good.

At the onset, our service was very good - we ordered champagne and oysters to start and the oysters were very good! Much larger oysters than I am used to being from Massachusetts but they were very tasty! The artichoke salad was tasty and fresh. The bouillabaise was fine but the least favorite of all our menu for me. After the salad our service became very slow as the restaurant became more busy. We did have an inside seat that was very cool - U shaped and in middle of dining area. For a nice, special dinner, I'd recommend but be aware that the service may be slow.

Arrive late last night and hotel recommend us to come here for seafood. Upon arrival at 10 pm still need to queue up and waited for about 15 minutes for a table inside the restaurant.

We order only the seafood platter for two and a bottle of white. It was a huge plate. However, as compare to what I have before in Paris or other places it was really average. Extremely disappointed on the brown crab and lobster.

Only the oysters were fresh and tasty, the prawns were also good.

Read from the reviews that the service was bad what I experienced was alright. Our server keep check back on us too see if everything is okay.

The quintessential seafood platter piled high with raw clams, mussels, oysters, snails all spanking fresh. Followed by a sole that could not be faulted. Service was harried and slow and grumpy. The place is huge which you don't realise when you sit outside. In the pedestrian area of Rue Massena so a great place for people watching. They know their fish!

We did not make a reservation but they managed to accommodate us very quickly.

The food is on the pricey side with mains averaging around €35 euros but as treat the meal was definitely worth every penny.

Would recommend visiting to everyone who wants to have a great seafood meal!
