“So closed, so great !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Usually I never leave an advice on my great restaurant because I don't want many people inside. But this place is very great if you want to eat fish of the day according to nice spice. It so closed but so fresh, good cooking, cheaper and smile ! After a review of Mucem, if you want to eat a sunny cooking, little bit surprising by nice flavor, new taste, try it! I'm pleased to share no commercial place with other trip advisor surfer. I'm just a massilian guy ! have a good time !

“Indian Ocean, delicate and refined”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This small restaurant in the Panier, a one woman show, is my favorite at the moment. It's relatively new and definitely up and coming. The food is of Indian Ocean origin (from the Comoros Islands - kind of near Seychelles and Tanzania), which is actually super-authentic in the context of Marseille because the Comorean community is very significant in Marseille yet relatively recent to immigrate, making this restaurant kind of a precursor.

The menu is generally chosen by the chef, but anything made here will be totally delicate. There are a lot of spices but it's not simply hot, but rather soft and delicate and really refined. What I particularly appreciate are the fresh products from local markets and use of a lot of vegetables (use of fresh products are not a given in Marseille and farmers' market is probably pretty much unheard of).
