Great choice of fresh sea food. Oysters, crevettes, moules, salmon as well as others. The design looks like self service supermarket rather but it doesn't matter. I do recommend!

I visited this restaurant twice on the recommendation of a local friend who mentioned if you love fresh fish and fair prices, you won't find anything better. Very true! It's a little different on the self-service front - in that you choose your fish first, with any dips or extras on display. Then you'll get a Buzzer and the waiter... More

The Tourist Office in Marseilles recommended us to this place for lunch. When we saw their set up with the sidewalk benches piled up with seafood we knew this would be a great place for seafood. We thought we could just ordered the seafood from their sidewalk display. Apparently the sidewalk display is for takeaway only - if you are... More

The style of this restaurant isn't super traditional-- you have to go up to pick what you want or order what you want and then they bring it out after. I don't eat fish, so my friend asked for me about vegetarian options, and was told they had potatoes, beans, cheese, bread, vegetables, plenty for a nice dinner, but when... More

If you're a seafood lover and you're there its like you're in heaven. The reality is a lot better than the pictures. The speciality is the oysters and sea shells area which I haven't tried. I tried prawns and salmon which were perfect cooked in every sense. The food was very fresh and extremely delicious. It's not your fancy Pancy... More

Travelled to Marseille in December. We found this little gem. Before you enter the restaurant you can choose from the fresh seafood variety. I ordered a sea food platter. It's the best seafood ever. The restaurant gets very busy as well and the service is excellent. This is our must if you are in Marseille not far from the old... More

And he was the best! He really knows a lot about food they are serving and with his help we got the best plate of raw sea... More

I liked Toinou very much ( wish I knew what it meant...family name?) It's cafeteria like...You get a tray...pick from sauces and like me, you can get cold sea snails. Sea Snails are the closest to clams I can get in France. I ordered fish and chips ( cabillaud) which was ok, it was not the freshest....but I liked the... More

They don't speak much English here (although there was one gentleman behind the counter who was very helpful!!), but W O W is this place good. The value for what you get is incredible. All of the seafoods, both cooked and uncooked, were insanely fresh, and will make you seriously appreciate this place. For what you might get at any... More
