Fantastic selection of oysters and shellfish. Friendly service. You can't book on weeknights (they are closed Mondays) and you MUST book on weekends

With an impressive selection of oysters from all over France, and some of the best shellfish, this is a brilliant seafood restaurant. You can't book on week nights, but you have to at the weekend

For a fantastic array of incredibly fresh seafood, this is the place to go. We ate two large platters of seafood, focusing on the many varieties of oyster available, but not forgetting the crabs, prawns, clams, mussels, crayfish etc. The oysters were some of the freshest and best-tasting I've ever had, and the service was truly excellent. I would certainly... More

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!!!

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
