This is a typical French restaurant, Parisian style that serves great food and reasonably priced. Simply one of the best in Marseilles, and honestly priced, the deserts are amazing, make room for some.

Our friend who is a local took us to lunch here, as we wanted steak tartare. The family's son in law waited on us, he was fluent in several languages and spoke English without an accent. He could not have been any more friendly. Had 4 plates, all steak tartare which was excellent, a bottle of wine and several deserts... More

We ate at this restaurant tonight based on the reviews from trip adviser. What we read was spot on. Between 4 of us we ate the steak and veal and it was great. Cooked to perfection and the staff were very friendly. A beautiful little restaurant at a decent price.

Short, safe walk from the port, even after 11:00p.m. Service was great; smiley, friendly. Speak French, English and Spanish. Bavette, "black angus", cooked to perfection. Pepper and mustard sauces on the side, delicious! The fruit tart with home made chantilly, good choice. Price not bad for the area and quality. Under 90 € for 3 steaks, a pitcher of house... More

Again in Marseille for serious business that required a salve of excellent food in comfortable, calm surroundings….. Le Julien restaurant. This was the Tuesday after Bastille Day [14 July] and the city was dead. A huge hangover or those merchants normally closed on Monday had stayed open for the festivities. It made me worry that we would not find appropriate... More

I read reviews on Trip Advisor, and thought this sounded like a good choice for our only dinner in Marseille. We arrived a bit early, but the waiter opened the door, and then directed us to a great bar down the road for a pre-dinner drink. We had a really lovely meal at Le Julien - we had the Lapin... More

We like to just slip in the front door and into the nearest seats. We did just that last week to get nourishment for courage and the spirit. This is the right restaurant for that special kind of atmosphere, service and food that will elevate your mood and put a smile on your face. As usual, their menu offered something... More
