Very nice bar!! We had only coctails that were really good!!small tapas were coming all the time!!nothing special! The view was really good we were there at the sunset! Music and decoration and the yellow color of the sun was making it a bar from old times!! I would visit it for sure! Prices were ok!

As a bar La Caravelle deserves certainly a visit (good viewpoint on 'le vieux port', good beer). But do not even think to go there for lunch! After more thant 40mn waiting for someone to take care of you, you are at risk of beeing asked to leave your table because of a booking error...

On our first day in Marseille we wandered along to the Old Port in search of some lunch. I'm so glad we spotted this place and managed to avoid the tourist traps. We sat down at a lovely table on the balcony with a great view - it felt really special. The waiter was friendly and the service was good.... More

For a one night stay in Marseille we had booked a room at Hôtel Bellevue on Quai du Port. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find a nice bar next to the reception on the first floor, offering commanding views on the old harbour (“Vieux Port” ) and the church of Notre Dame de la Garde through the open...

Early evening drink in the bar, a plate of charcuterie, cocktail or rose wine - perfect way to spend a lazy evening. Beware it gets very busy later in the evening so come early! Seriously cool views over the port, slightly kitch old style decor but it's a classic. Music nights are good too and lunch or brunch. Simple food... More

Booking in advance to get a table on the terrace and there you go : for a drink, lunch in fall, dinner in the summer, La Caravelle gives you an incredible and romantic view on this lively part of Marseille. From above. In the inside, you still have cosy table to drink Mojitos.

We were recommended to this restaurant by a friend who lives in Orange but grew up in Marseille. The restaurant is situated on the first floor of the Hotel Bellevue and therefore does not have tables out on the street and its entrance can be missed quite easily if you are not careful. The place is wonderfully old fashioned as... More

Superbly situated on the first floor of the Hotel Bellevue on the Vieux Port. A wonderfully old-fashioned interior with a tiny terrace of 5/6 tables. If you are lucky (as we were) you can get onto the terrace but the accommodation is "cosy" and you get to know your terrace companions well!!! This, however, is my only quibble. My partner... More

Just to validate my review, I do drink a lot and in many places. This bar is one of my top ten favourite places in the world. I urge you to visit as it is an absolute gem but don't go if you are a bit of a ruffian and don't enjoy the finer things in life..... The staff are... More
