“The BEST restaurant in Marseille”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

This restaurant was by far the best we have been to so far during our time in France. It is a small and intimate, and the food is straight up excellent! The chef is from South Africa, and the food is sort of a french-south african mix. The service was excellent, and the chef came out to us personally to explain the dishes to us (we speak very little french, so that was very helpful). We had a little bit of everything - chicken liver in a tomato cream sauce appetizer that was amazing, salmon in an orange reduction sauce, dorad fish special cooked with kiwi, and the assorted dessert sample that was soooooooooo good. Service was excellent and they even called a taxi for us when we were finished. Best experience in dining France yet, make reservations, highly recommend!
