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, and would do so again. When the Chef heard this he made a point to... 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 in sublime surroundings. The jellyfish paper light shades are very clever, the staff were warm... 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 you would expect it is expensive and they will take a €50 deposit per person... 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. Two points to be taken in consideration; access by car and parking difficult and wines... 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 time we made a special effort. The restaurant bears no resemblance to how it used... 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 ignore us (no menus, no drink orders, no water even) for approximately 20 minutes. Once... More

For a party of 8 ordering the boulabaisse we were certainly not dissapointed. An incredible broth and impeccable fish after a elegant ravioli dish. A slight twist on the classic boulabaisse but well recieved. The dessert was also small like the ravioli but after the boulabaisse you dont want anything big. The petit fours with coffee was just the icing... More

Arrived just before sunset, walked around the little fishing village past Fon Fon and the others, and into this oasis of calm and elegance. Everything is beautifully designed and executed. Service superb. We both had the bouillabaise and it was superb. After we had the soupe de poission, they offered us some more and we accepted, so they brought an... More
