If you are looking for French food at top quality and competitive price, with additionally a great bistro ambiance, top service done by the owners, and last but not least very good wine, that's the place. Don't miss it!

Fine dining in a bistrot. Food and wine very good.

Le Bistrot a Vin is a quite good restaurant with a good kitchen and a very familiar and approachable environment. A new insight into the Provençal food's tradition at an affordable price within the centre of Marseille.

We visited this restaurant with friends. I had a starter followed by steak and a desert. The starter was tapenade on toast with lettuce which was very mediocre. The steak was almost inedible and came covered in rocket and cheese. I left most of it. For desert I ordered fruit with tatin sauce. This comprised finely chopped apple with the... More

Very French feeling and atmosphere. Not bad but actually not really great food, at least not the meat. Happy staff though

The meal started well with an excellent selection of corsican charcuterie, but the main course was really disappointing - i gave up trying to eat the steak as it was too tough, and not particularly flavoursome.

Very nive resto. Good service. Excellent wine and food. We went there two nights and each time the chef surprised us with an excellent meal (once fish, ince meat) as thry only van serve in the provence. He also helped us with our wine choice. He gave every guest the feeling that they were important to him.
