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...More

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...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,...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...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...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....More

Like a lot of Brits, we had heard of this restaurant from the Rick Stein TV series where he travelled from Bordeaux to Marseille on a canal boat. On a previous visit to Marseille we hadn't been to this side of the city, so this...More

Great Bouillabaisse, an incredible broth and an excellent array of fish after an elegant ravioli dish. The classic Bouillabaisse was quiet large and satisfying. The dessert was very nice. Service was impeccable; the Sommelier's wine recommendation was very good. Great view. Not to be missed

On the positive side, this restaurant has a beautiful view of the ocean and the food ranges from good to very good. On the negative side, they seated us at the worst table in the restaurant despite better tables being open, then proceeded to completely...More

After your ship arrived, you'll probably be aiming to the "Vieux Port" ,and from there you'll be from less than 30 min on foot walking above the sea on the "Corniche Kennedy" and taking pictures of the viewpoint. Do not... More
