The best restaurants in Marseille with garden or patio, cool !
In Marseille, the arrival of fine weather and milder temperatures often rhymes with the desire to have a best restaurant with a change of scene. If you are in the mood for something green, opt for a table on a garden terrace or in a patio to break away from the “concrete” atmosphere of the city centre.

La Tasca, Spanish-style tapas and a subdued atmosphere

And the setting is just as pleasant with its warm atmosphere lit by candles in a courtyard at the back of the restaurant.
