“Tasty food, fine service while enjoying the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

The food was excellent and the service was very attentive for our supper here. They have a very good wine list as well. The view of the port at night was gorgeous, adding to an enjoyable meal. It's a 5-star hotel, so of course I expect it to be good, and it was.

“If you are considering whether to go to the restaurant, you should try it yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

No doubt the environment is perfect for this high class hotel. We have a menu each one that day, the price was 50 euros and that was definitely value for money. The Marseille old port views 270 degrees with the yacht club is perfect. We were welcome to take pictures and the waiters/waitresses graciously explained the 2600 years of history of the old city to us when we arrived at the restaurant. the complimentary biscuits, the Entree, as well as the Plats were good. They are from the fresh ingredients of the day. We enjoyed the day very much. Reservation is probably needed, at the window seats.

“Most enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Very nice staff, excellent foie gras, tournedos rossini, and Turbot. 2 bottles of excellent Chablis. Great table setting and the plates are the same as Robucon in Monaco. A beautiful view of the port. €340 euros for 2 people and 3 courses but I considered it worth it. We had an excellent night and enjoyed every minute. Well done and thank you Les trois Forts!

“What A View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Fantastic view! Food was pretty mediocre, however I think the view made it taste a bit better.The wine list was on the expensive side as well. I think I should have stuck to restaurants outside the hotel - and there are plenty to choose from.

Dear Madam,
We are sorry to read that your experience at the restaurant Les Trois Forts was not as successful as you expected it to be. We are disappointed that you didn’t enjoy the food… For a next meal, don’t hesitate to approach our headwaiter who will advise you according to your wishes. Also, our wines are especially selected by our sommelier; she can guide you to choose your wine according to your meal, which helps explain the high cost of it.
However, we are happy that you found the view to be “fantastic”.
We hope that you’ll give us another chance to surprise you with our chef’s creations, in front of the best view of Marseille,
Best regards,
Gersende GUEIT,
Quality Manager
