Les Trois Forts has an amazing view over the harbor and delicious food to complement the experience. I enjoyed a cold mullet starter on the recommendation of my waiter, a wonderful main course of turbot on a bed of beans and a noisette tart with marscapone ice cream. The choice of dishes was a challenge, as everything looked very inviting... More

This restaurant has a fantastic view of the sea and fort. The service is stuffy and hit or miss, the English skills are lacking so maybe this contributed to confusion among the waitstaff. The food is expensive but not worth the price, you are paying for the view. If you are looking for an impressive view this is your spot,... More

The food was excellent and the service was very attentive for our supper here. They have a very good wine list as well. The view of the port at night was gorgeous, adding to an enjoyable meal. It's a 5-star hotel, so of course I expect it to be good, and it was.

No doubt the environment is perfect for this high class hotel. We have a menu each one that day, the price was 50 euros and that was definitely value for money. The Marseille old port views 270 degrees with the yacht club is perfect. We were welcome to take pictures and the waiters/waitresses graciously explained the 2600 years of history... More

Very nice staff, excellent foie gras, tournedos rossini, and Turbot. 2 bottles of excellent Chablis. Great table setting and the plates are the same as Robucon in Monaco. A beautiful view of the port. €340 euros for 2 people and 3 courses but I considered it worth it. We had an excellent night and enjoyed every minute. Well done and... More

Fantastic view! Food was pretty mediocre, however I think the view made it taste a bit better.The wine list was on the expensive side as well. I think I should have stuck to restaurants outside the hotel - and there are plenty to choose from.

The restaurant is located on th 7th floor of the Novotel. Views of the Veille Port is excellent! The view alone should be a reason to visit! The vrry good food and service will give you enough reason to book a table. Prices aren't cheap but the food is worth it!
