Lauracée: "little gem" Marseille Restaurant Tip by SSlatter

Marseille Restaurants: 62 reviews and 104 photos

This restaurant is a bit off the beaten track, but well-worth the effort of finding. You`ll probably be greeted by the amiable chef-proprietor, Christophe Negrel. I chose a Fricassé de Morue (fricaseed cod, tomatos and potatos in garlic à la nouvelle cuisine). My friends chose Poèle Champignons et Foie Gras (compote of mushrooms and foie gras) and Filet de Daurade à la plancha (fillet of Gilthead Sea Bream). My cod was superb: just the right amount of garlic and salt, and my friends were very pleased with their choices. We drank a white Chablis which was okay. The wine list looked good; a bit let down by the coffee, though. Not the best. The bill for three came to 107 euros, 49.50 of which was wine. Recommended.
