Situated in the heart Marseille's 1st district, Mémé's (French for "grandma") retro bistro is always packed. Resolutely original, the decoration conveys an atmosphere of Sunday family gatherings. Lights on the ceiling and low wooden furniture glimmer with floral and fringed lampshades, family portraits in vintage frames are hung on the blue walls, while lace doilies cover the rustic tables where candles slowly burn.
As for the unique menu, it celebrates fresh ingredients and changes regularly. For instance, you can try duck shepherd's pie with stir-fried girolle mushrooms, or wild sea bream ravioli in galangal-lemongrass and blood orange Thai broth. For dessert, indulge in a tarte tatin that will take you back in time with its shallot sauce. A succession of flavours to give you the impression of having lunch at your grandma's.
