On the opposite side of the building from Les Arcenaulx, this restaurant occupies a former dorm for prisoners who were forced to row the ornamental barges of Louis XIV during his inspections of Marseille's harbor. Today, it contains chandeliers, plush carpets, antiques, massive rocks and thick beams. You'll get a lot for your money -- prices are relatively reasonable and ingredients very fresh. Provençal dishes include succulent baked sea wolf prepared as simply as possible -- with herbs and olive oil. Particularly noteworthy is bouillabaisse (which, at 45€/$59 per person is the most expensive main course on the otherwise inexpensive menu), and a delicious combination of saltwater crayfish with foie gras. Desserts usually include roasted figs served with sweet dessert wine.
