Small place (book ahead), daily menu (2 starters, 2 mains, 2 deserts), nice wine list at reasonable prices, with a chef / owner / maitre de / one man show extraordinarre who really cares about the food and service. Like having dinner in private dining room of a really good home chef. A wonderful experience, our best meal in Marseille. Highly recommended.

O'bidul is more a Table d'Hote than a restaurant, tucked away in a backstreet 5 min.utes walk from the old harbour in the centre of Marseille.

Only a few covers - so essential to book. (A lot of people were turned away whilst we ate).

This was one of the best value, most pleasant eating experiences we've had!

Just one delightful man runs the place on his own - and everything was seamless - even though the place was full.

The menu. is sensibly restricted but there is adequate choice. The food is freshly cooked with a lot of care and love and the portions well presented and generous. It's not Michelin star - but you'd be hard pushed to find better value.

If you're in Marseille do go - you will not be disappointed - we'll certainly eat here again!

The restaurant itself is simple and Sparten and spotlessly clean.

A one man show, a small, clever French Menu, beautifully cooked, and excellent value.
The Owner and Chef, is welcoming, and the Wine Selection is very good.

Wow what a find! This amazing little restaurant is served entirely by one delightful young man. As a party of six we had almost half the 16 cover restaurant. It has a wonderful intimate but casual atmosphere. The menu is tiny, 2 choices in three courses, but the food was excellent, presentation delightful, just fabulous! The service was spot on. A great start to a fabulous weekend with friends.

The restaurant was so highly rated on trip advisor.
We are not fussy but really it was not our best culinary experience.
The chef/ waiter in one person is extremely friendly and helpful.
The meal was good but nothing great, simple home cooking.
Chicken could have had more taste.
