We had high expectations. As high as the bill. Though the food was good and fresh, there lacked the originality that we expected (and found in other restaurants with similar star ratings). The service was good. But to be expected at this price. All in all, you can find similar quality preparations and one third the price in many restaurants... More

I ate there with my partner whom wished to try the famous "bouillabaisse". It was a good experience with a great service and a lovely view. The sommelier provides some good advices and you can enjoy the dinner that is not expensive for the value. The bouillabaisse is really good, and I am native from marseille.

A memorable meal. So beautiful and elegant yet local. Expensive, but a special meal. We went on a rainy day, but it was still so lovely to be right out on the rocks. I love the white space with little touches of red coral and flowers against the rocky gray day with the gray sky reflecting the water.

We went there to celebrate a birthday, the food was very nice, one star standard. No surprise. Desert tastes good, but too ordinary presentation, they could do better. Else, the decoration of the restaurant is manifique! I like there floor. We could see the sea vivant. I feel like in a aqua palais. The view is so attractive that you... More

When you walk into the restaurant there is a Plexiglas floor section looking down into sea below - the fish for your bouillabaisse are swimming down there The preparation is unbelievable complex but the result worth it - although expensive. we went with a Berkley CA Chef as part of a food and wine tour of Provence and in addition...

The place is fantastic: the restaurant is in the sea and facing the Frioul. The service is correct. The dishes can be very very good (fish and truffle crust over a risotto with mushrooms was excellent). The desserts are excellent when they have chocolate in them. The wine card hides some very interesting wines. Overall, the restaurant is quite expensive... More

I've never seen such rude servers in a restaurant. I suppose talking politely in face of the customer and just several meters of him, laughing on him with colleagues ( not only for one or two times), isn't a professional comportment. Food was somehow good (frankly not spectacular). The dessert was excellent, but the servers behaviors were really unacceptable.

Multi course bouillebaisse with view of chateau d'if, evoking Dumas. Also views of Marseillaise painting on house. Witty cultured service. Even visit to toilet was stunning passing by ancient whirlpool with water crashing through the grilles.

This restaurant has a very nice location by the sea in Marseille, but it is not close to the city so you need a cab to get there. We tried the nine-course menu. The sommelier advised about the wine and it was a very good advice. In this restaurant you normally have fish dishes. Even so in our menu. The... More

First the place is magical, like a postcard. Simple and nicely decorated. The service is very attentive. In contrast to what is written in some of the other comments, the place was not noisy at all, although there was big table not far. The food was simply excellent, the bouillabaisse in two service was very tasty…and the fish unbeatable. Yes... More
