We've been here twice this summer, on both occasions we had a lovely meal from their set menu. The restaurant declared independence from France in 1956 and you can pay for your meal in the local currency, which is figs. If you can carry enough of them (100kg = 1€). Very original, friendly staff, amazing location, highly recommended.

We spent some time around the area of Mugel and Figuerolles. We stopped at the restaurant for lunch not having booked and were sat at a table outside. The best feature is the view. As far as the food is concerned, we were slightly disappointed. First of all, we thought there was a lack of choice and the food was... More

Very nice calanque, located close to a parking area. I would however recommend to go there early to avoid crowded times

First, the good news: the restaurant (which I knew as Chez Tania more years ago than I care to remember) is still where it was, its toes dangling in the Calanque de Figuerolles, a tiny turquoise creek on the Provençal Mediterranean. This is one of the Supreme Being's gifts to the world, along with all the calanques from Marseille eastwards,... More

Really beautiful spot to unwind. Well worth finding it. You can feel the stress of life melt away as you descend. The path is steep and uneven, so you need to take your time!

This is absolutely a highlight of the trip! Away from everything, completely remote. The view is to the beach and rocks, which is calm and silent in the night. The food is the best in that area.

This restaurant has an exceptional location by the seaside just on the outskirts of La Ciotat and offers both terrace dining and simple but warm indoor dining option if the weather isn’t favorable.The menu puts an emphasis on diverse seafood choices but also offers nice prime beef cuts for the unconvinced.We tried both the seabass and salmon carpaccio for appetizers...

Wonderful location right at the bay. Food average but the view does cover all. You can have your coffee and a nice walk and afterwards jump into the crystal clear sea. A must see.

We really had a very nice day in the calanque, but additionally, we wanted to spend some time in the bar. Usually, these places are expensive and not very good, but we had some of the best iced drinks ever, and for a reasonable price. Do not miss it.
