After spending the day in Aix En Provence, we returned by train to Marseille and walked around the port city. We went around the u shaped harbor looking for a restaurant to eat that night. We stopped by Miramar after reading a few good reviews about their seafood. We made a reservation for that night and went on our way around some more.
When we returned for dinner we sat outside in a tented area that helped brace the wind for us. After we all ordered, some amuse bouche appeared. First, some toasted bread covered in a truffle cream with sliced black truffles on top. The earthy mushroom like flavor was intense in this one. You could smell it before you ate it. It was a nice start to the meal.
After that, we received a shot of fish soup with caviar and herbed oil. Rich yet light and the perfect amount to whet our appetites.
