Sample Marseille’s best bouillabaisse

Marseille’s maritime heritage thrives in its cuisine, where fresh-off-the boat catches are married up with garlic, olive oil and flavourful veggies to create sublime dishes.

Best for bouillabaisse

1 L’EPUISETTE

With a Michelin star and knockout sea views from an elegantly austere dining room perched on a rocky outcrop, this is one of the most consistent spots for real bouillabaisse (see overleaf). This version is served with fve types of fsh including monkfsh, John Dory and scorpionfsh (l-epuisette.fr; 158 Rue du Vallon des Auffes; lunch and dinner Tue–Sat; three courses incl bouillabaisse £65).

2 LE RHUL

This long-standing classic is a 1940s seaside hotel with Mediterranean views and plenty of atmosphere, however kitschy. Its restaurant is also a reliable place to try genuine bouillabaisse, where the fsh is prepared tableside and served with typical condiments (hotel-restaurant-lerhul.com; 269 Corniche du Président John F Kennedy; lunch and dinner daily; bouillabaisse £40, lobster version £50).
