One of the best cheesecake ever!

You deserve a great dessert after strolling through the Old Port of Marseille, which is pretty amazing too. But why not indulge in the world of the cheesecake? The portions here are big, I would dare to say double the normal size, the caramel topping makes it great and the whipped cream on the side... read more

If you Like small places where the food is great and the service is excellent... Go there ! I found this place walking along the port with some friends. We had a very warm welcome for the waiters who have a true and sincere smile on their faces. They might like their job. The owner is from Corsica and I... More

We went to a restaurant recommended by our concierge, but it was over priced, stuffy and lacked atmosphere. We left. Stumbled on this restaurant, had a great meal, fantastic service and will definitely go back before we leave Marseille ! Awesome burger!! Great people!

Incredible calzone in the sunshine by the water. Nice friendly staff, who didn't mind helping us with our limited French skills!

Food was really good, service is very good. Sitting outside with view of vibrant Vieux port in front and watching the World Cup match together was fun. Had a real good time.

It is a very nice and cozy restaurant. The food was very good. Staff couldn´t talk English or German but as we had a guy with us that speaks fluent French we were ok.

so our waitress may have started a bit surly at our broken french, but she warmed up eventually and served us well. The food was yummy, surprisingly good. We went for the 17 Euro three course meal, and at that price didnt expect too much. We were happily surprised by generous portions of tasty, well presented, well cooked food. The... More

My husband and I walked around the old port looking for a nice, simple place to eat - not too expensive or fancy. We walked by this place once and ended up going back. It was a cool evening, but we sat outside, as they had heaters. The server was delightful - very accommodating and helpful. We ordered a pizza... More

We came back to this restaurant several times over the course of our time in Marseille - really good prices, unfailingly good food (we sampled pasta, pizza and fish), decent house wines by the glass and one waitress in particular who never stopped smiling!
