Been there with friend after the good TA reviews and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was not special, for rare occasions but was ok for a good lunch/dinner where the focus is on the food. The service was good, helpful staff. The prices were very competitive compared with other places in Marseille for the same quality of food. I... More

The modus operandi has changed since my last visit three years ago; it is no longer a restaurant but a self-service "canteen" where you que in a line with a tray. Salads, ready starters and cutlery, etc. are picked up along the way; you pay and the seafood, or fish, when ready, is brought to your table. I do not... More

The service was very good and quick. I love sea food so for me this was heaven. It's in pleasant surroundings. You can just sit and watch the world go by. Lovely place

If you like seafood platters, you'd like this place. Good selection, quite a few varieties of oysters. You can pretty much build your own platter, and everything's laid out in the cold display on the street. It's not fancy, it's a little like a canteen, but service is highly efficient and most importantly, the seafood is fresh.

My second time at Toinou was as good as my first. This seafood restaurant works a bit like a canteen: you help yourself to a large counter of starters, drinks and desserts, then at the checkout you order your main and hot courses that are brought to your table. The seafood platter was very good indeed. I had the same... More

Unique concept in Marseille, self service kind of place but with great and fresh seafood. From oyster to mussel, even managed to convert my wife to oyster eating. Quick business lunch are good too. If you beat the crowd.

We just happened upon this place and were really glad we tried it. True, it is cafeteria-style. Just grab a tray, pick your wine, beverages, desserts, appetizers, sauces, bread, and then order your fish at the checkout and pay. They prepare your fish order and bring it to your table. Everything we ate here was very good and we did... More

Right down on the harbour in Marseille this no frills seafood restaurant delivers a great dining experience without costing the earth. Its not much to look at, but the stalls of fresh seafood out the front are a hint that fresh seafood of all types is what this long standing Marseille restaurant is all about. Unusual order and pay at... More

We were recommended by the tourist office because I enquired where we could eat good shellfish. Went there twice for lunch in the four days we were there. Having read other reviews, I do wonder sometimes where people are coming from and what they expect. We had no problem deciding what we wanted, we were given assistance by a very... More

Le Toinou is a "coquillage"....a shellfish shop with a restaurant attached...it is one of the most famous in central Marseille and is easily located because the tram (L3) from the Castellane to Les Arencs passes in front of it. It's also just of the Canabiere which is the central shopping drag in Marseille. The reason I like this place so... More
