We went to l'Epuisette to celebrate my husband's birthday -- we hadn't been to other Michelin starred restaurants on this trip and we hadn't had a bouillabaisse since our last visit to Nice.
We went by taxi, an approximately 15 Euro ride from central Marseille. The driver had to drop us off nearby, as he couldn’t drive to the restaurant, which was literally on the shore and over the water. Our booking was for 7:30, and we opened the restaurant. As I had requested, we were seated at the window.
We both ordered bouillabaisse (at 60 Euros each) and a dessert. Our wine was good, but we twice had to request that it be poured. The bouillabaisse was good, the fish was then presented, boned, and returned -- it was good -- but NOT 120 Euros worth! And then, although I had notified them twice that it was a birthday celebration, they did nothing to mark it, unlike an experience that a fellow Trip Advisor member had.
When we were ready to leave, they asked if we wanted a taxi. When it arrived (also nearby), the meter read 9 Euros, a legitimate charge, as the driver had to come out from town.
