Four of us had lunch here and while my 3 dining companions had the 32 euro fixed menu or ordered from the carte, I had a bouillabaisee which came in at 50 euros. This may seem expensive at first glance but it is about standard in this area for a proper rendition, which if genuine must contain a number of particular species of fish. As it happens, some of these are becoming increasingly expensive. The restaurant is a member of the Le Charte de la Bouillabaisse Marseillaise, which is dedicated to preserving the traditional and correct version (bouillabaisse is not simply a soup made from any old available fish,which other cheaper places may have you believe). It was marginal value at 50 euros, but was certainly filling and tasty. Service was quite acceptable for a restaurant along the tourist strip and I don't agree that it is a tourist trap, as the standard of fittings and glassware is better than its competition. Several of my dining companions spoke excellent French and engaged with the staff, which may have helped our experience. The wine list is acceptable and the local Domaine de Paternel rose is perfect with this style of cuisine. We paid the bill exactly as presented, without any comment or complaint from the staff. French restaurants include the service charge in the bill so adding 10%, as another reviewer has commented, is naive and not required.
