This great little restaurant in Le Pharo was our first taste of Marseille. Here's hoping the rest of our experiences are just as good. The risotto gambas was great and the fish soup a real treat. And don't miss the mandarin tarte for dessert. A little (or a lot) of French is always helpful, but between my poor French and... More

Excellent bouillabaisse at an out of the way local restaurant around the corner from some fancy restaurants charging three times as much for a similar menu.

The delightful, helpful waitress advised us to share a starter - thank goodness we did, particularly as we had arrived hungry and snaffled up the delicious tapenade and bread offered. My husband's main course of bouillabaisse was superb and my sea bass was delectable. No room for pudding. It was so good that we went back the next night! The... More

Wife and I had a delicious bouillabaisse here. We did not try anything else and were both so full after it. It was very quiet that night but was perfect as the great waitress took time to talk us through the dishes and we had a chat to the chef. Definitely recommend it.

We chose this restaurant for a quiet meal away from the port area. Do as the locals and share a starter because the portions here are very generous. I had the squid entrée which a party of four locals shared! The food was delicious but we were unable to finish either main meal. The waitress speaks very good English if... More

Situated in a quiet side street in the Catalan beach area the Abaco is an excellent restaurant. There are no printed menus - instead a fixed price €29 menu and an a la carte menu are written up on chalk boards. We were taken through each item on the menus and looked after very well from start to finish. There... More
