Marseille is not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the most hospitable cities in France. Marseilles cuisine is based on the gifts of the sea - which is not surprising, taking into account its coastal location.
Bouillabaisse is the most famous dish from Marseille. This is a thick soup with a lot of fish of at least three varieties. All this is prepared with potatoes and vegetables. L'Epuisette is famous for its bouillabaisse. The restaurant is located on the top of the cliff, here you can fully immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere typical of the port cities. The famous soup is prepared according to an old fishing recipe.
Tapenade is another star of the Marseille cuisine, it’s a very thick sauce made from capers, olives, anchovies, or dried tomatoes based on olive oil. Tapenades are eaten as a snack, smeared on a baguette. The best tapenades are served in Au Coeur du Panier and Cote Rue restaurants.
Like in any other seaside town, fish dishes predominate in the Marseille cuisine. Rich catches and imagination of the chefs create exquisite and unique dishes.
