This is a review of a restaurant we didn't eat in but the story is worth telling in case others have the same experience. We wanted to try bouillabaisse during our visit to Marseille and had booked Chez Michel through our hotel for dinner on our last night. When we got there, however, the restaurant was completely empty. The proprietor explained (in helpfully slow and clear French) that there had been a storm that day and therefore no fish delivered (or rather not the right fish for bouillabaisse). As this is a one dish restaurant that meant no dinner for us. It seems odd giving three stars to a restaurant we didn't eat in but I give them for the proprietor's honesty and commitment to authentic bouillabaisse - he could easily palmed us off with other fish. However, there is a warning here - if you are planning to go here it might be worth phoning ahead to check that they have the right fish.
