Fodor's Expert Review Chez Michel

$$$$ Marseille French

This beachside Michelin-starred brasserie near the Jardin du Pharo is considered the last word in bouillabaisse and draws a knowing local clientele willing to shell out a few extra euros (€75) for this authentic classic. Before dining, the fish are paraded by your table then ceremoniously filleted before being served with all the classic accompaniments: a spicy rouille, buttery croutons. Oysters, whole grilled fish (priced by the kilo), and an authentic garlic-steeped bourride are other fine choices—along with a good selection of great local wines. The bouillabaisse is well worth the splurge, but be sure to reserve in advance.
