La Côte de Boeuf

Being in Marseille, you might experience seafood burnout. If you do, try and give La Côte de Boeuf a shot. This place serves gigantic steaks grilled to perfection, and the wine list is just as impressive to match. Staff speak English, and will be glad to accommodate your requests.


Marseille boasts a culinary tradition heavily influenced by its surroundings. Fish dominates, and one dish in particular — bouillabaisse. This fish stew combines a variety of fish with saffron, fennel and orange zest. It is served with rouille, a garlic and chilli-flavoured mayonnaise. Olive oil, herbs, fresh fruit and vegetables are also quintessential elements of Marseille cuisine.
