This is a very modern restaurant in this old historic city.The waiter who served us is the joint owner with the chef and it is obvious by the standard of the food that they have a real commitment to making this restaurant in the old town a success. The food is of a very high standard and beautifully presented leaving... More

We went without booking & the staff were welcoming & professional. Every dish was innovative, fresh & tasty - pate foie gras with fig paste, rabbit stuffed courgette flowers & the herb smoked steak all amazing. Altogether a great dining experience.

Definitely the least good of the meals that we had in Marseille-overpriced, pretentious and not at all welcoming. Having said that we did have a fantastic starter involving rabbit and stuffed courgette flowers. The amuse bouche was not worth the trouble and the puddings were unremarkable but the main problem was with the fish course which was cooked sous vide... More

We went there without booking and we were lucky enough to find a table. The place is nice and classy. One of the waiters spoke very good English, while the other one spoke mainly French but it was OK. The menu is very interesting and sophisticated. The service was good but a bit slow, as I feel 2 people are... More

First - the staff are delightful. We were the only non French present when we had dinner and they made a real effort to look after us. The wine waiter in particular was informative without in anyway being pushy. The ambience was cool modern and restrained but at the same time comfortable. The food. The catch of the day fish... More

We chose this restaurant because of the positive reviews on this website, and we were not disappointed. The food really is of great quality. We loved the way in which French classics such as bouillabaisse and fois gras were converted into exciting new dishes. Will definately go here again!

Made a booking based on reviews and was not at all disappointed. Tastefully decorated pleasant surroundings and absolutely delicious food. A special mention must go to the boulloibaise burger and the bellota pork 3 ways - though we enjoyed all courses immensely. Extremely good value for money for the quality of cuisine on offer.

We had diner based on the reviews here. It was good But not special. I ordered the hamburger Bouillabaisse which is a great idea, but the tasted was not ok. So nice but not great. I think it is time for more innovation.
