“Carribean French cuisine very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We went to this restaurant at the suggestion of our local landlords whose apartment we are staying at in vieux port marseille. We were very pleasantly surprised if not a bit overwhelmed at the quality and taste of the food. Apparently the owner and chef have carribean backgrounds and hence the food has a slight twist on the typical French. Not sure what that means but the food was great and the bill came to an expected 50-60 euro for two ppl for 3 courses and a bottle of wine.

I suggest you choose something on the "special" chalk board as this is usually in line with what Evers good from the market and typical of good French restaurants. Fresh is best!

“An excellent lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

We were so surprised by this little gem of a restaurant. We could not have been better cared for nor could the chef have worked harder to please the busy lunch crowd. The market menu is a real treat and very generous in the range and quality of the food on offer. From a large selection of Provençal dishes right through to the petit four with coffee we enjoyed fresh, local ingredients cooked with love and served (often by the chef himself) with interesting touches such as sorbet in the tomato soup. The pork fillet with mushroom and potato was excellent as was the desert of melon soup with fromage frais ice-cream .
