We've been for romantic dinners to Marius before and were again not disappointed. Service is excellent, food intolerances aren't an issue and the food is simply delicious. We went along with the wine recommendations and it matched each course perfectly. Dining at Marius doesn't only...More

It started as a table d'hote by two Chez Panisse alums over a dozen years ago. It's now a little larger, and the menu a little more complicated than a fixed four course. But it's still like eating in a chef's home dining room, still...More

Already more then 16 years Marius is a concept as a small table d' hote with a daily changing menu of 4 courses. We adhere the refined country kitchen: simply real food made from natural ingredients, maybe French, maybe Mediterranean, but surely our expression of what we like and oh dear... How much we love veggies. Since we moved to our new location March 2012, we are slightly more of a restaurant and therefor a bit more spacious and comfortable. But at the same time it is still cosy and sometimes crowded with conviviality and we still partly have our family styled shared tables. At Marius we always serve what we find on the market. Our 4 course menu changes daily en costs 47,50 euro. Next to with the menu we always have a few specialities like Bouillabaise and Vitello Tonato. Alongside the menu we serve, if you like, a appropriate wine suggestion. But gladly we invite you to study our extensive wine card and find you your favorite bottle. When the weather allows we have a little Parisien like, sidewalk terrace.
