GOOD

Quite good! Had a great dinner! Though the waiting time was a bit too long (about 1 hr). According to the waiter, they didn't expect so many people to come that night.

Was our favorite meal in Marseille (we didn't frequent higher end restos though). Lovely, if not a bit slow service. Food was fresh and simple.

Had a really good fish and chips once, a average salad once. The terrace is nice in the Summer.

If you like overpriced food and drink,poor and surly service then make your way to the restaurants around the port, do not come here.If however you enjoy wonderful food,great service and competitively priced cuisine then this is the place,what a gem! Weekends you need to book.

We had here one of the best meals in Marseille. The dinner starts not before 19:30 (like in almost all restaurants in Marseille) but it is really worth it. They have a changing daily menu of local gastronomic specialities and everything that we tried was fresh, tasty and a very good amount. The location is really nice, close to the... More

We searched out Bobolivo because we wanted something away from the expensive tourist traps on the harbour side of the Vieux Port. After all, I can only stand a limited amount of surly service before I start to plot retaliation. Bobolivo fitted the bill perfectly. The welcome was warm, the waiters friendly and accommodating and you didn't have to wait... More

We stumbled across this place as it was close to where we were staying and ended up extremely pleased. First impressions it felt like a diner but as the temperature dropped outside the coziness of the woodfired oven certainly made it seem very welcoming. We watched the chef proudly cooking away over the fire and the food was really tasty.... More

I had the classic tartare and it was super tasty and served with delicious homemade fries. My partner had the Bavette - flank -with shallots and it was the best... More
