The best seafood restaurant in the world is Petit Nice, in Marseilles. Le Bernadine is super in most aspects but the tiny portions do not warrant the high cost. Bread is served to fill you up. Service is peerless. The room is handsome.

Hi. I think it’s better to change the jeans for a pair of social pants. But if you feel comfortable with jeans, just go! The restaurant is amazing.
