We ate here on our first night out in Marseille after spending lots of time walking around trying to find somewhere which looked nice and had a nice looking menu. We entered the restaurant where the staff greeted us and were very friendly and attentive they could tell we where English after my poor attempt at French and was looked after by the waiter who spoke very good English and assisted us with interpretation of the menu.

I had a bouillabaisse which was on the 15 euro menu which was tasty and the fish very fresh, my partner had a white fish which was delicious followed by an apple tart and sorbet, the menu was great for what we paid and would recommend this place and as the evening went on a lot of the locals ate here which is always a good sign, total bill for 3 courses each and beer £40.

I can see that people complained about the service however it was a laid back atmosphere chill out and get into the Mediterranean groove and stop being so English and savour the food and your holiday if your that bothered go to a fast food place!!

We went to this place for dinner and at first the waiter was quite attentive (the restaurant was still empty). We got our order in and the food didn't take too long to come out. We got fish and fish soup which both was ok but certainly nothing to rave about. The fish, even though filleted still had a fair few bones in them. While we were eating the restaurant filled up and that's when the service team started to lose it. Our plates were not taken off the table and neither were we asked if we wanted desert or coffee. We requested the bill multiple times without anyone making an effort to actually bring it to the table. After more than half an hour we ended up going inside to pay.

There were only 3 Servers handling the main dining room, the patio and an upstairs room. We only saw our Server 3 times - when he took our order, when he asked if we wanted dessert and coffee, and when we had to flag him down to get the check. I ordered the sliced roasted breast of duck. I thought breast meat was lean? There was a strip of fat on each slice which accounted for almost half the meat.

Just a good restaurant.
