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 have a million things on their menu, it's probably neither fresh nor home made. Here, the menu is limited and there are many of the same ingredients in the different plates, but they manage to have their own deliciously unique taste! It really gave me the feeling of a homemade local restaurant in a city that is full of tourist traps. I also must say the lady (I think the owner) was one of the nicest French people I have had the pleasure of meeting. My boyfriends says he would go back to Marseille just to eat at this restaurant!
A note on their opening hours (at least while we were there) - the lady said they were open Wed-Sat in the evenings and Sun for lunch. We were so sad we couldn't go back Monday and Tuesday! Also, we took one menu and one a la carte because we thought we didn't need all that food, but in the end I recommend taking 2 menus not only because it's a better deal but because the food is just that delicious!
