Went for dinner last night, the waiter was charming and very helpful, the food was exquisite course after course, more than worth a trip on the metro to what is a typical urban residential neighbourhood. We arrived at 21:00 and luckily one table was free, several couples after us were sent away disappointed so probably best to reserve, a lovely... More

Great fresh French food, topped with a bottle of wine while overlooking the beach. Who can beat that for lunch? Worth a detour whatever you are doing.

Five of us are here last night. And all of us left saying "Why didn't we come here before today?" Service impeccable, with a smile and the impression that they would do everything to make sure the evening went well. The food is original, and delicious. I particularly recommend the tarte Tatin as a starter, and the Peri Peri sauce... More

Stranded at Marseille Blancarde station and Citronnier is only a couple of hundred metres away. We were amazed that there was space for us. Wonderful food, great taste combinations. Everything really fresh and pretty and large! Beetroot/chèvre/mango parfait was lovely. My onion and tomato tart tatin was fabulous. Cod en papilotte was fresh and simple, the chicken livers piri piri... More

This place is among the best I've been to. The food is outstanding. The flavour combinations were outstanding on all the dishes we tried and the portions were generous. The burger is a must try and so are the snails. The service was outstanding and they speak good English. Will definitely go there again during our visit. Highly reccomend this... More

We arrived here for the EURO 2016 soccer ball games from Hungary, my friends and me visited this place. We loved it sooo much. Their hamburgers are the best so far around the neighborhood. The waiter was very kind he can speak fluent english. He explained every food in ENGLISH that is very rare in Marseille, you'll see. We ate... More

We were driving from St. Tropez to Marseilles and we were excited to find a highly rated restaurant that was open until 3 PM (all the other top listed restaurants on Trip Advisor closed at 2 PM). Don't be fooled by the listing on trip advisor that says this restaurant is open until 3 PM. While the restaurant may be... More

After reading the reviews I was excited to try it out. It's a very small place and we arrived just before 930pm to be told the kitchen were closed on a Friday night!! So that was that. I have a feeling that having a small child is probably the reason the kitchen 'was closed' so beware!
