    Great bouillabaisse I ever had! Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and great dishes & wines. It’s a bit far from the old port but really worth to visit.

    We went the restaurant on time there were no one to wellcome us we waited 5 minutes anybody to come Although we did the booking several days ago we couldnt sit by the window It is very nonsense and not concenient that they they dont let boullabeise to be shared. I asked whether the size of the meal big or not the waiter said very big but its for one person and you cant share if you do so I will charge double portions So we ordered 2 and had to leave half of it because its too much for us I wont go again and will tell this to every one

    My first and only time having Bouillabaisse. The restaurant is wonderful and the dish is amazing. The flavors were not as I expected and I was more than pleasantly surprised. The service was genial and welcoming. Wonderful wine selection. It was more than I hoped.

    We had an incredible dinner for five here, truly a night to remember. The bouillabaisse was superb, the fish succulent and texturally perfect, and the rouille and bread crisp and tangy all at once. For dessert, I had a marvelous roast pineapple dessert with coconut sorbet that was luscious. The service was attentive and welcoming, and we felt cared for, both with food and with hospitality.

    I have booked this restaurant in advance, because I wanted to eat bouillabaisse in Marseille and Chez Fonfon should be one of the best for this purpose. Nice location, nice view, friendly service, freshly cooked delicious bouillabaisse, I can recommend all others this restaurant. Also local people are coming for dinner and even my visit was on Tuesday, the restaurant was fully booked out.

    Chez Fonfon is located in a very beautiful small harbour with lots of authentic charm. We went there to try their famous bouillabaisse. Unfortunately the soup didn't taste of much and the prize was far to expensive. We wouldn't go there again.

    The setting is simply amazing- beautiful & unique view. Unfortunately that is where it ends. We were seated by the window with the sun boiling us never offered to close the shutters despite our clear discomfort. The bouillabaisse was bland & boring. The waiters uptight. Wished we’d tried the other restaurants around this one.
