A charming restaurant off a side alley, walking distance from Vieux Port. Menu appeared to be chalked up daily on the board. Varied selection of seafood, meat and pastas. All 4 meals were beautifully prepared with the freshest of ingredients. Delicious - our best meal in Marseille. We could roughly make out what the dishes were with our basic French... More

We went there on a sunday evening for dinner with some friends and we had a lovely time. Located in a narrow alley near the "view port", it gives to the restaurant a feeling of intimacy. The owner of the restaurant was really talkative and we had a good time discussing with him. Regarding the food, we really enjoy the... More

First of all, the location of the restaurant is a little hidden away in a small street next to a larger (but still small) and very nice square with a lot of restaurants and cafes. Great view from here to the Notre Dame. No view from Cote Rue restaurant, but nice little tables in the street. This restaurant could be... More

We were lucky enough to snag an outdoor table at peak dining time on Saturday night The restaurant is actually in a little alley which was fantastic to watch all the bustle of the square next door but far enough away that it was more intimate than dining in the square itself. The meal & wine was great but really... More

By far,the best meal we had in Marseille.The freshest ingredients were expertly prepared into divine dishes. The chef's attention to the smallest detail was remarkable. The fish was perfectly cooked as was the stuffed beef. An assortment of salads, pâté,dips to start were just right. Great wine selection, a beautiful dessert and some digestif on the house. On a side... More

I'm writing this review almost a year after dining at this fantastic restaurant - I can't believe I forgot to review this place! We went for Sunday lunch and were blown away by the delicious dishes we got! I've spent a lot of time in France for work and one thing I've noticed about French restaurants is that if they... More

It is striking for this place to be anywhere in the top 5 Marseille restaurants. I simply don't have an explanation for it. If it was not for this fact, i would have probably given it 3 stars (average), however after the expectations were set this high - this was quite a letdown. Again, let me reiterate - there is...

If you bother to just head a little bit off the beaten track, which most sadly don't, then you are in for a truly great evening at Côté Rue. The card is simple - opt for the menu. Any one of the combinations are great - although the mussels entrée was my favorite. Onglets were excellent. Best choc mousse I... More

My wife and I were in Marseille for just one night and wanted a good place to eat. We looked in TA and found Cote Rue. We phoned Cote Rue, booked a table for that night and had a really good, memorable meal. The owner met us and we had the choice of inside or out. As the evening was... More
