Maybe the second best bouillabaisse in Marseille after Chez Michel. The atmosphere is a little warmer but I don't personally feel that this is up the very high standards of Chez Michel; still worth a visit.

My sister and I went here specifically for the bouillabaisse because it was highly recommended by some of my co-workers. The food was delicious!, You will definitely not need to add anything else to the plate, it is charged of flavours (so to speak). The price is more than fair for the quality and quantity of food (but definitely not... More

Chez FonFon . We went there to try the Bouillabaisse and we were not disappointed. Located in a snug little harbor. Our waiter was charming. I was disappointed that there was not outdoor seating. I was too nice a day to be indoors,

Service was officious and patchy. I can make better bouillebaisse at home. The soup tasted plasticy. The fish was lovely as was the scallop carpaccio which... More

My husband booked this restaurant in advance of our trip from Australia. First time to have boullabaisse. It was wonderful and the staff were great. Idealic setting in a little port and a taxi is definitely the best option.

Looking for the home of Bouillabaisse... This is as close as you can get! FonFon is one of the best and other dishes are also excellent... Like the sautéed eel. Try it you will like it!
