Food at Marcel is amazing. You can choose from a 3,4 or 5 course menu that is marked by a dot, all at set prices. If you want to divert from THE set menu, you can choose anything else at a small, somethimes little larger, extra fee. THE atmosphere is great and service is friendly. You can choose to follow...

Smaller group of people (12 people) was seated in the back of the restaurant, so quite nice for a evening with cutomers. It is a bit more private then sitting in the busy restaurant itself.

at first sight reasonably priced menu but you are charged extra for almost anything, quickly driving up the price of the meal. Clumsy waiting unfortunately clashes with the nice setting and interior. 20 euros for chef's wine choice? you get 1 glass of mediocre white and 1 glass of reasonable red. Not for me.

superb wine and cocktail lists, mainly seafood-based menu. Staff friendly and attentive without being too 'in your face'. food was slightly tasteless and either over salted or totally under-seasoned. most people at the table had warm food however my dishes arrived cold.

The interior of these restaurant is really nice, French bistro-style with very high ceilings, located in an old, remodeled house. The multiple-course dishes were very tasty and the service personnel is kind and friendly. To be recommended as well for special occasions.
