Very disappointing dining experience. Was looking forward to bouillabaisse in Marseille in a restaurant which came recommended. Both the level of service and the quality of the food were substandard. The bouillabaisse was seriously underwhelming especially as it was €70. The pattern of poor dining...experiences in France has continued. No doubt this criticism will be met with a Gallic shrug.More

Amazing restaurant with a great view, amazing bouillabaisse and good service. The restaurant was recommended by two local friends, and we enjoyed the food, very nice Bandol wine and the lovely staff. It is not cheap, but the experience makes it worth spending your afternoon...here.More

Don’t come here if you don’t speak fluent French as you will be discriminated against. The bouillabaisse was extremely disappointing - average only fish in a tepid broth to “keep it warm” A very surly waiter who made us wait 30 minutes for our bill...and then tried to insist on us adding a tip in addition to the already included service charge What should have been a lovely meal full of theatre in a romantic old hotel was absolutely dreadfulMore

We were in Marseille for the Rugby and knew a Bouillabaisse would be on the agenda at some point. We managed to get a booking for the 4 of us at 7:30. We arrived a little early but watching the sun go down with a...good Rose and some croutons and tapenade was a good way to spend some time. We all went with theBouillabaisse after sharing a squid starter. We were all very happy with the choice. The service was good and we were very happy with the whole experience.More

Don't go to one of the touristy restaurants at the Marseilles Old Port for bouillabaisse ‎- go here instead! Apparently it's where the French Presidents go for the famous dish of Marseilles. Thank you to the taxi driver who told us what a great restaurant...this is. The location and views over the water are spectacular. When you think 'typical high end sophisticated French restaurant with staff who are proud of their job' - think Le Rhul! From the moment you enter you know this is going to be special. Service is impeccable. If you order the Bouillabaisse‎ the wait staff show you the seafood/fish before your dish arrives, and come around with the pot to add more bouillon to your bowl as desired. The lobster option is a must. Oh my goodness the restaurant has a sweet trolley too. Such a 70s throwback so good!!More

We wanted an authentic bouillabaisse whilst in Marseilles for the day, le Rhul was recommended and lived up to expectation. The restaurant lays claim to the authentic recipe and our cab driver confirmed its place amongst the best. It was delicious and great theatre. Worth...the trip.More

We had the best meal of our 12-day vacation in Provence here. Watching the sun go down over the sea while having bouillabaisse was pretty amazing and what a bouillabaisse it was. The broth is thicker than some and perhaps a little less refined; it...bursts with flavor and, of course, the aioli doesn’t hurt. But what made this an exceptional meal was the service. Although the staff was extremely busy they seemed genuinely friendly and very aware of us. If the fried zucchini flowers are a special, try them. Highly recommended. Make a reservation and get there early.More

DON'T LOOSE YOUR TIME AND MONEY, A place to AVOID. I just had diner there tonight. The first contact with the team was not good. We felt immediately this is not customers oriented. We had to wait a long time (30 min) before having someone...coming to our table to take the order. The food was not expectational and price very high. The servers are not friendly and they bring me the fish i ordered and forget the vegetables. To make it short: EXPENSIVE, POOR SERVICE AND I DON T RECOMMAND AT ALL !!!More

For my first visit to Marseille, I wanted to eat for the first time a real and good bouillabaisse! After some research, it became clear that one of the best was at Rhul! As for the welcome, nothing to say, the waiters were very warm...(reminding the friendly side of the southern people), helpful and caring during the whole meal! A small salted sweetness awaits us before each meal, which was not to my displeasure. You know the rest, bib, nice deep plate, and spoon, I was going for a bouillabaisse! (Note that they also make one with lobster... to see for the next time maybe). In short, it was quite good, not transcendent but good. We were shown the fish, we were given advice on how to eat it properly, we were served the inevitable pieces of bread accompanied by this famous rouille, in more than sufficient quantity. We are even allowed to take some broth almost at will! We eat well and quite enough. The only drawback is in my opinion the price, a little too high in my opinion. Especially the dessert, I was tempted by a mille feuilles, but 13€ is a bit too much. However, this high price is also partly justified by the quality of the products, the service but above all by the idyllic setting, facing the sea that this restaurant offers! In conclusion, great experience, no regrets!More

I ordered the whole sea bass baked in salt. They took it away to open (the salt crust) and only brought me back half the fish, looking pretty shredded. Maybe because I am American they did not think I would see half the fish was...missing? The sauce for the fish came 10 minutes later, we were the only table without breadsticks and we had to ask twice for water which did not come until after we finished our appetizer…octopus. Disappointing. Come if you want to feel invisible.More

A true disappointment. On my bucketlist I had a wish to go to Marseille for an original Bouilabaise and my wife made it happen for my birthday. When we arrived we were placed and other people that came in some time later were served first...even though we were not even offered a drink first. Offcourse I ordered the Bouilabaise and my wife choose the lobster. When it all came, the Bouilabaise was served with some 100-150 grams of fish and the lobster was undercooked, very small, served with overcooked scalops. Any garnish was apparently too much to ask for (and missing on the menu), so we could not order it seperately. The taste off the Bouilabaise was ok-ish but together with the very limited amount of fish certainly not worth the price. One staffmember (a young man) did a good job, but the rest should consider work outside hospitality. All in all a very disappointing evening in a restaurant that I do not recommentMore

Restaurant location is nice with a beautiful view on the sea and that’s it! Cuisine quality is not impressive. The famous bouillabaisse is the scam of the century. The restaurant master and the lady who manage the restaurant act as they are managing a star...Michelin restaurant which is absolutely not the case. The waiters and waitresses are nice and do a great job.More

Incredible view of the Golfe de Marseille and the Anse de la Fausse Monaie (a quaint cove with swimming off the rocks). Note that all of the properties facing Corniche du Président John Fitzgerald Kennedy will have a bit of road noise, as it’s a...busy street, but still extremely lovely. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Easily accessible to the Metro and Vieux-Port via the bus which comes every 10 minutes.More

Dear all, my friend and I went today to this restaurant. Surely we were too early which means in numbers we have arrived to the restaurant at 18:30. The kind waitresses said us that we need to wait until they open. So we have been...waited. Then we were asked by the one kind waiter to enter. So my friend and I went to the entrance to ask after 1 hour if we can enter. So at the end the women, no clue if she was the owner, said that they are fully booked and wanted us to leave. I was kindly saying it’s okay and we will leave now but the waitresses said us to wait until 19:30 so we waited 1 hour to enter. The restaurant was totally empty. Also upstairs it was super dusty so I think they don’t have many guests to serve. I am more than sure also she could at least understand what I tried to say her. She asked me if I can speak French. But in the way I could recognize she just doesn’t want to serve us. I am not able to speak French. But she has 2 people - one speaks English the other one Turkish. I could speak also with them in these languages. So all in all it was disappointing without even entering. I recommend you to book in advance also to use your dictionary.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Le Rhul. This was a dining experience. The staff was friendly and the preparation was excellent. Desert was a special treat. And, the view of the bay on a beautiful sunny day made the restaurant even more special.
