An Elevated Escape at the Rowing Club in Marseille
Feel like enjoying your lunch and whiling away the hours looking out to sea? Boasting a rooftop with spectacular views over the Old Port, the Rowing Club is also home to a tasty restaurant well known to local foodies. Within a maritime atmosphere, its owner Gilbert Bitton has made this open-air deck a convivial place cleverly combining colorful design with a good-natured atmosphere. And if during the week Christian Ernst’s Mediterranean cuisine delights all Marseille, on Sundays, regulars take to the terrace to savor a buffet brunch. Sweet and savory pies, a range of kebabs and fresh vegetables, waffles and pancakes make for a delicious medley of flavors.
