Take away : yesThe Trottoirs Marseillais are a brewery-restaurant that surprises by the quality of its cuisine and its decoration, ingredients that make its success for over 13 years between homemade bouillabaisse, daily specials and view to the sea.
Rare are the places that make unanimity, but in this part of Marseille, far from the center, if you ask people how to avoid tourist traps and eat at good prices, be sure that it is always mentionned.
We must admit that the Trottoirs Marseillais were able to find the right formula with a menu that ranges from traditional brewery (meat, pasta, pizza, salads) to specialty restaurants (fish), 100% homemade and with only fresh products, carefully selected. Add to this the varied daily specials at affordable prices (9.8 €), a modern and warm decoration, a retractable terrace with superb brightness plus an impressive selection of desserts, and you will understand why this restaurant is full every lunchtime. Think about booking if you plan to come on weekends.
Regarding the specialties, of course you can order in advance a bouillabaisse (48 €), but we advise you the Petite Bouille (24 €) that has the same soup stock, but with other fish (monkfish, conger) plus crabs, mussels and calamari. That makes a very hearty pot that comes with croutons, rust and garlic: a must for fans!
