Is This the Restaurant with the Best View of Marseille?

The main reason to visit Le Chalet, an informal open-air restaurant in the grounds of the Jardin du Pharo in Marseille, is its incredible 180 degree panorama across the Old Port. It's perched high on a mound at the neck of the port, so you can keep tabs on all the maritime traffic, and the terrace is small enough for nobody to end up very far from the view. Arrive at midday or at 2pm, when the best tables become available again for the second sitting. A stone's throw away is the Sofitel, with its posh, Michelin-starred Les Trois Forts but at Le Chalet you can enjoy the same vista for a fraction of the cost. Click here to read more.
