We so much enjoyed this restaurant where we had a lovely lunch after exploring the Picasso Museum and the Provençal Market. My husband started with some fabulous Madagascar crevettes and I had seafood with pasta while he enjoyed the grilled scallops accompanied by squid ink risotto. The scallops were enormous and the best I have ever had. The service and hospitality plus the wine were thoroughly enjoyable.

Small with few tables but a ringside view of the diners in the market and not so hot as restaurants with tables underneath the market roof. Very friendly service. Food outstanding. My husband had his favourite - tagliatelle with seafood which he eats regularly in Milan - this was better! I wish the powers that be would reorganise the traffic so that the market area could be free of the noise and fumes!

We have been there today and they serve fresh, wild fish. We had good swordfish and sea foods, although a little expensive for young people, the service was fast and they were very hospitable and kind. It`s worth to note that they do not accept credit cards but there is an atm machine right near.

Mer Sea is run front of house by two enthusiastic young ladies who make you feel most welcome and assist non French speakers such as my wife and I. It is all about seafood, and especially oysters--most guests the night we were there had them, and seemed to enjoy them greatly. We had an outstanding red mullet salad to share, followed by seafood Provençal style and pan fried scallops. In every case, the seafood was cooked to perfection. From an extensive wine list we had an excellent Chablis. The crusty bread came with butter flavoured with seaweed, which was great. The only slight downside is that the restaurants outside tables are perched right next to a road-plenty of activity to watch, but a few cars going directly by. All up cost was 82 euro, which was excellent value. We will return to try more of the menu
