In the Old Port is not a bad location, but this is a tired restaurant in an overtired city. The atmosphere is from a bygone era, but not in a good way. The service is okay and the food is okay..not what you are looking for when you pay to go out for dinner.

Visited the restaurant with another couple. The decor is not my style, but never judge a book by its cover. The street front, where everybody wants to sit is too crowded, so if you want privacy, don't book there. We were offered a window table on the first floor, which I really recommend when you book, as from here you can really have a good view to the harbor (even if people from the street level don't see anything because due to exhibitions sometimes tents cover the view) and don't smell the cars and motorbikes. The service is slow, but even if slowness is normal in Provence, they could add some style and kindness here. I cannot say anything bad about the food, but nothing really remarkable either. Have to tell that my friend who ate bouillabaisse was very happy. The portions are enormous. I received about 100 mussels. For me the food was a strong upper average, but the feeling touristic and industrial.

We visited 7 years ago last time. This restaurant is as classy as before. It was and still apparently is one of the best in town for the priice. A wonderful French menu at 37 Euros. Don't miss it. We returned there again on the second night of our 2 day visit. Make a reservation and sit outside.

We ate off the 37Euro set menu, which was plenty.The food was very tasty and well presented, but the service was extremely slow, highly impersonal, and at times rude. We had booked a table so were able to eat outside, but the terrace was fully booked so it is advisable to book. Decor very nice, a good atmosphere and busy restaurant. Overall, a nice evening, the slow service didn't bother us too much as we weren't in a rush, just a shame it wasn't more welcoming.

We turned up really late and they did their best to feed us despite kitchen coming to a close. Cheery staff even though they must have been really tired by the time 8 of us turned up to eat, especially on one of the busiest evenings of the season, 24 august!
