I haven't done this cruise but I do live in Marseille. You won't find much of what you're looking for in the immediate area round the cruise terminals. But take a cruise shuttle or taxi to the Old Port - it's a fairly short ride, though not really walkable - and you will find restaurants, shops and cafes galore in a lovely setting.
Hello! I see that you live in Marseille. I was wondering where the best place is to have lunch is around the old port. We are looking for some type of seafood or local cuisine around 10 - 15 euros per person. It does not have to be fancy, just delicious. Thanks in advance!
Locals seem to like Chez Madie les Galinettes, on the harbour front, but it's a bit pricier. I haven't tried it myself yet.
If you are in MRS during the week, you may be able to get a prix fixe (set lunch) for your budgeted amount - these are always the best value. They aren't always available at weekends, though.
