L’Epuisette is located in the old port of Vallon des Auffes, which makes for a magical backdrop with great views of the sea and fishing boats close by. The cuisine served is gourmet Mediterranean, greatly appreciated by both locals and tourists alike.


Marseille boasts a culinary tradition heavily influenced by its surroundings. Fish dominates, and one dish in particular — bouillabaisse. This fish stew combines a variety of fish with saffron, fennel and orange zest. It is served with rouille, a garlic and chilli-flavoured mayonnaise. Olive oil, herbs, fresh fruit and vegetables are also quintessential elements of Marseille cuisine.
