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. Flowered-patterned and fringed lampshades light up the room from the ceiling or solid wood low tables. Black & white portraits with vintage frames are hung on the blue walls, while lace doilies cover the rustic tables where candles slowly burn.
As for the unique and seasonal menu, it varies 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.
