Hands down the best meal of our trip

The food was delicious, beautifully presented, and most of all, for a tapas-style meal, actually filling. Methinks the menu changes according to season, not entirely sure, but the Akolytes burger blew our minds, so if it's on offer, try it. The waiting time for the food was a little bit long... read more

There are few great choices in the Pharo neighborhood of Marseilles, so Les Akolytes is a welcome treat. Situated just across the street from the beach, it is a humble, simple space with zero ambiance and harsh lighting. But don't be fooled -- Raoul and his staff offer a wonderfully creative version of local Marseille cuisine, with a daily selection... More

We were recommended this by the concierge at the Sofitel for something simple, inexpensive and nearby and it certainly didn't disappoint. The tapas style menu was unexpected but worked well (20€ for 2 dishes per person was plenty). The food was outstanding and imaginatively presented: beignets of courgette flowers; sardines under a Parmesan crumble; roast bone marrow; burrata with pesto... More

I went there with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed it. The place is quite small, very close to la plage de catalans. Their portions are small but food is excellent. We loved the gaspacho. Service was also very good.

This restaurant is nice and all ingredients are gathered for a nice evening : good food, good service, good wine ! The share concept can be a bit annoying when it is good so if you are numerous it is better to take 2 plates of something or you will end up with one spoon of risotto. Unfortunately the terrace...

After loving this place last year and earlier in the year, we revisited recently and were not impressed. Service has deteriorated, and so (more important) has the kitchen. Jury is out; watch this space...

First find your parking space – which is the main challenge of the game, since this resto-bistro is situated right on one of the most popular beaches in town. Dinner commences at 8pm, and booking ahead is the only way to be sure of a seat at this increasingly popular venue. Choose a few dishes from the chalk menu and... More

We chose this restaurant as the atmosphere seemed very good when passing by. You are recomended to select on average two large "tapas" per person to share, but we could not decide, so we ordered every dish they had that evening (3 per person, in total 10). Every single dish was excellent and some of them brilliant. For desert we... More

The restaurant is located opposite Plage des Catalans so we enjoyed a wonderful sunset. The interior has a nice modern and colourful design with a twist. You are invited to select two "big size" tapas dishes per person, as a meal and the whole table shares all the dishes. Food was well presented and delicious. Staff was very nice. We... More
