Fodor's Expert Review Regards Café
Close and yet so far from the hustle and bustle of the Vieux Port and MuCEM's crowded cafés, this luminous dining room in the Musée Regards de Provence has panoramic views over the new port and Marseille's top architectural gems (including the one you're sitting in). Happily, chef Thierry Lennon's cooking lives up to the ambience, with dishes like roasted cod with saffron risotto or tender duck breast with honeyed red cabbage. If you've forgotten to reserve (a must for the lunch-only dining room), don't worry: there's a cafeteria-style buffet with freshly prepared gourmet sandwiches, salads, and desserts to enjoy on one of two terraces. Open until 6, it's a nice place for an afternoon pick-me-up or an apéro before heading off somewhere else for dinner.
