From the street, it looks like an average "joint" ... tables out front, dark interior bar. But when you walk in!! There is a lovely, elegant dining room, if that's your preference. Beyond THAT is a picturesque patio, complete with arches, a curved staircase, blooming...More

Average pizza. Over priced food and drink. Sat around waiting for a while before being served. Not much atmosphere.

We visited by bus on a weekday in January so had no problem with parking the car or lots of other visitors. I imagine that could be a problem in summer. As it was just after Christmas they still had their decorations up and I...More

We toured Marseille by tuk tuk and the driver stopped here for drinks. We enjoyed taking pictures in this sweet little coastal area and had drinks at La Grotte. The interior of the restaurant was beautiful with multiple seating options and the bathrooms were immaculate.

Super romantic setting for pizza and/or seafood lovers. Off the beaten path, but well worth the jaunt out. My wife had the fish soup and I had the ray fish cooked to perfection. Accompanied by lovely local organic wine.
