We went for bouillabaisse, which was good. However, waiters were less than accommodating. I studied in France for 2 years and wanted a menu in French to also teach my son some words, but the waiter-hearing my wife speaking in English, did not want to provide a French menu, which I got from a different waiter. Also, prices are unfair-bouillabaisse... More

The staff were happy to suggest wines and in... More

Lunch menu was nice and delicate, although not that much to eat, now the meal took us two hours... ultimately the café gourmand made it to our table... an ice-cream served with coffee... not really what a café gourmand is supposed to be...

Warm, friendly service. Eating in a library. Great ambience in the wonderful Plane aux Huiles. The bouillabaisse was excellent, a bit ore complex & subtle than that the neighboring restaurants.

Located in one of the popular tourist squares in Marseille and this evening a very loud salsa dancing thing going on, even do we decided to sit outside. So the extra noise level was following okay, but again one hour would have been enough, not the whole evening :-) anyway this doesn't have any effect judging the experience at Les... More

Serves very good & traditional Marseille fish soup. We are not big fans of fish so we did not order the fish soup as a main course. We had the fish soup as starter of the set dinner and it turned out to be a good move. As starter, the fish soup comes with no seafood and thus we can... More

I was very pleasantly surprised. I came with my dog. Mme Lafitte - the manager - and the waiters were very sweet and attentive. Brought my dog a water bowl. Service was lightening-fast, friendly and professional. I had about the best bouillabaisse I've ever tasted. The chocolate fondant dessert with vanilla ice-cream and ginger was delicious too. I love the... More

An upmarket restaurant with the walls covered in books and a good ambience BUT very poor service - slow, inattentive and no real engagement. Was it because we were English and a group?? My wife and I were sat by the route from the kitchens and bumped several times without any apology. We saw lots of people who came in... More

lunchtime and restaurant not too pressed but initially ignored when trying to get tabe and then systematically slow and grudging 'service' only spent 52 Euro so probably not enough for a single diner
