Fortunately I had eaten Bouillabaisse several times before, in and around the Marseille area, to know what to expect - and I was certainly let down by Miramar (supposedly the Gold-Standard of the regional dish). Other more-caring restaurants took the time to display the selection of fresh/raw fish that would go into your dinner. Miramar just trotted out an already... More

My visit in May 2008: On reading the bad reviews I wonder whether I was in the same restaurant. During the morning I had perused various other menus in the area and decided upon the Miramar. Never mind the expense, give the cat another goldfish. On being seated by the Maître d’ staff quickly attended to my needs and soon... More

Many reviewers recommend here as one of good place for bouillabaisse in Marseille. However, we were markedly shocked by its outrageous taste caused by rough treatment of fishes and strong smell like that of grinded old shrimp shell that wiped out all soup from the fishes. There were so many customers, but the dishes came too soon, suggesting these had... More

Having read the reviews of the Miramar restaurant, I am surprised that several people had an unpleasant experience. My husband and I dined at this fine establishment in July of '08, and were so enchanted with the surroundings, the ambience, the service, and the fabulous meals, that we are talking about returning to Marseille and certainly the Miramar Restaurant (we...

Thanks to Fodor and our hotel, we made the mistake of dining at Miramar. Please, trust me, don't go. After 12 days in France, I can honestly say that our meal there was probably the most mediocre and the wait staff the least attentive of anywhere we ate. It may have also been the most expensive meal of our trip.... More

This resurant has a nice view of the old port; has nice table settings and linen; has an attractive formally dressed staff , BUT has the most awful food and service. I don't know which one is worse. In a very friendly city like Marseille, where fresh fish and seafood are in abundance, this resturant has to work at being... More

We asked for pastis as aperitif, but it took four requests to different staff to reach our table.One and a quarter hours elapsed between ordering and arrival of food, then mains appeared before starters. Half of white arrived as rose, after three choices being not in stock; haughty response when I asked for change (before tasting).Ordered bottle of St.Joseph, not... More

This is one of the worst restaurant I have ever been to. We were recommended to go to this restaurant by our hotel. We were seated in this restaurant only to have our menus given to us 10 minutes after we were seated. It was moderately busy in the restaurant but there were alot of staff. Moreover, as we do...

Read various reviews here and elsewhere before going there tonight. Seems to be love or hate. My experience is the following: extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff, advised on sizes of portions and matching wines, did not try to extort, advised that tips were included on the bill, and that starting cover was complimentary. My colleague and I took bouillabaisse which... More
