Lovely place for sitting in the sun with a coffee or drink. Always busy, but service good. Closes quite early, so not sure if they do food in the evening.

We'd just arrived in Marseille. I looked out our hotel window and saw La Samaitaine just across the street and decided for location, view and convenience we couldn't do better. Typical bistro menu, nicely served and enjoyed being in the Old Port. Recommended.
