Primarily a concept born from the love of the best Mediterranean foods, Fuxia is a restaurant chain that also exists in Paris. The place includes both a restaurant and an Italian deli/gourmet shop. The restaurant cooks up three or four different dishes each day, so the menu varies daily. Its good food and the service staff is very friendly. Creative, hearty dishes can also be ordered as specials (formulae express lunchtime only on weekdays or formula aperitif: antipasti and two glasses of wine). The terrace is heated in winter, perfect to enjoy a limoncello sorbet any time of the year!
A popular jazz venue for over 20 years, this well-known bar on the Vieux-Port with its inviting leather and wood décor has performances on most nights featuring the region's finest musicians as well as jazz artists from all over France. Big names such as violinist Didier Lockwood and percussionist Ceccarelli have already wooed the audience with improvisations and unforgettable moments of jazz magic on the club's small, intimate ground floor stage. What better way to spend the evening than listening to smooth sounds while sipping on exotic cocktails?
From dishes, desserts, live broadcast sports games, this place has it all. The brasserie also sells cigarettes until a certain time during the evening. This is the perfect place to hang out with friends on the port!
Bobolivo's success is all down to great teamwork: just a short hop from the Panier district, there's one person to do the meeting, greeting, serving and entertaining whilst another takes care of the cooking. A glance at the menu confirms the restaurant's unabashed bias towards local produce, used with a certain pride and heaps of creativity. Tuesday nights cater to the ladies, as there will be tables that read "ONLY GIRLS." Ladies receive special seating and discounted prices on cocktails. Call or see the website for more information about the menu or specials or to make a reservation.
This Argentinian restaurant near the Place Castellane features a friendly and competent wait staff, a warm and colorful decor and grilled meats cooked to perfection. The prix fixe menu features entrées like grilled peppers with olive oil, pâtés, and vegetable-anchovy paste, and main dishes including steaks, duck cutlets and kebabs.
The late Fonfon would have been proud to see that his restaurant's excellent reputation lives on. Still a family-run affair, one of the city's best places for seafood serves a mean bouillabaisse (cooked to perfection using ingredients fished from the sea close by), whilst other dishes including poisson à l'argile (clay-baked fish), and poisson grillé (grilled fish) should easily satisfy the most demanding of palates. Huge bay windows ensure a fabulous sea view while you dine. Très magnifique!
This bistro in the heart of Saint Anne’s neighborhood in Marseille has a nice terrace to sit at, as soon as it's nice enough outside to do so, for lunch or to have a drink in the sun. The interior has a Moroccan style decoration on the second floor and a more Baroque Art Deco style on the first floor. There's something for every palate; the dishes are generous with full menu deals at lunchtime. On some evenings the Turf sets up theme nights (with a dress code): 1980s nights, tapas and birthday parties can be requested. The Turf’s ‘lounge’ look attracts a rather trendy crowd.
Pizza Borely is a pizzeria on the famous waterfront esplanade area called Escale Borely, hence the name: Pizza Borely. The restaurant is situated on the first floor and has a terrace with a breathtaking view over the Mediterranean Sea. Therefore it is really nice to go out there in the summer and enjoy the view. The restaurant's personnel is rather kind and the decor inside is quite simple and conventional. Aside from pizzas and calzones, Pizza Borely also has various items on its menu: salads, meats, fish, pasta, and a lot more. Considering the view and the great food, the prices are quite nominal.
Open since 1992, Indigo is always very friendly either for lunch or dinner. One should not expect a completely authentic Tex Mex in Marseille. Nevertheless, Indigo’s cooking is as Tex Mex as it gets, and it's pretty good considering its fusion cuisine. Chili con carne and fajitas grace the menu. At night there is sometimes live music and also special entertainment on demand (private birthday parties are possible). In the summer, Indigo has its own private beach. How about basking in the sun on a deck chair while sipping a Margarita?
