Le Miramar

This restaurant is located in the heart of the Vieux Port (along with all the other upmarket local fish restaurants). Le Miramar has earned its spotless reputation due to serving excellent bouillabaisse. The restaurant's menu is, however, rather varied, and includes meat dishes, too.


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.
