Why Pay a Visit to Chez Etienne Restaurant in Marseille’s Le Panier Quartier

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

Peter Mayle once wrote that Chez Etienne was his favourite Marseille restaurant for lunch and it seems he is not alone.

As the locals say, ‘Il faut absolument passer, un fois, dans sa vie, chez Etienne’.

Even Gault & Millau call it a ‘veritable institution’.

Mayle was charmed by the old owner’s stance: no telephone, no menu, no reservations and no credit cards.  I couldn’t wait to visit!

…Continue reading here for Lynne’s review of this Marseille institution Chez Etienne. This restaurant is refreshingly “old school” with a small menu and unfussy atmosphere.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
