Fodor's Review

At this bastion of local cuisine, sit on the lively terrace jammed with locals and dig in to mountains of sardine fritters, petit farcis (stuffed vegetables), or a mini-bouillabaisse that is not mini at all. The servers know everybody, and friendly banter wafts over the crowds; don't be surprised if they treat you like a long-lost friend—including taking liberal license to tease. Reserve well in advance.

Take your medicine

with you - you might need it. I've had food poisoning twice. Smell your food before you eat it.
