delicious lunch - Edit

I've been here this summer with my boyfriend (vegan) and my grandmother (not vegan at all).
It was lunch time and there were not many people in the restaurant, the owner was really friendly and discussed with us.
I had a uge vegan composed plate with cake, vegetables pastry, lentil puree, chickpeas, greens, vegetables pancakes, and brown rice. I guarantee that I was not hungry after that and everything was delicious !
My boyfriend had a vegan tajine made with carrot, potatoes, sweet onions and almond, served with semolina. My grandma had vegetables lasagna (vegetarian plate).
The restaurant is vegetarian but there is some vegan choices clearly indicated, so it's easy to eat vegan here.
It was a delicious lunch in a friendly place !

Pros: delicious food, friendly owner

Friendly place for vegans and vegetarians - Edit

We had dinner with two friends who are not vegetarian. And every one enjoyed his/her meal. I took the falafels and panisse as a starter. It was really good with two different vegan dressings. Then, I took the vegan risotto that was excellent: good texture, good taste, creamy. And finally, they had only one vegan dessert, a cake with orange and cinamon that was good.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice and relax, the owner is very friendly and discusses often with customers. I paid 25 euros for my three-course-meal which is a little pricey but not exagerated in comparison to the food quality.

Pros: tasty food, vegan options, friendly staff, nice atmosphere

Cons: a little pricey

Average restaurant - Edit

During our stay in marseille we gave the cours en vert a chance to get some proper vegetarian food. The atmosphere was nice and the chef friendly. Appetizer was two dips and old tasting crackers. When we ordered a fresh orange juice we got about 100ml with 3 icecubes for 4€ ..the entree was okay 3/4 of the plate was salad leaves with two mini pieces of goat cheese with spinach in thin toasted bread (sadly almost cold) plus two dips but not with a mentionable taste. The main dish was gnocchi with courgette and garlic - truffleoil gratinated..little portion and average taste. The dishes are pretty small sized. If ure a bit more ambitious with ur taste in food i would not recommend this place plus the price isnt worth the quality.

Great Place - Edit

Excellent restaurant with options for vegans and vegetarians. Compares favorably to anything in New York of California in the same price range. I didn't see any meat or fish on the menu. Opens for dinner at 7:30. Great place to sit outside and enjoy the plaza. Live music some nights.

Pros: Food, Friendly owner, Nice Vibe

Cons: None

Le Cours en Verte, Marseille - review, dinner - Edit

During my Marseille trip I visited this restaurant for dinner on a Saturday evening in March. This family owned restaurant is cozy, with a warm and friendly atmosphere. They offer a daily changing menu with starters, main courses and desserts, as well as a wide selection of herbal infusions, tees, hot and cold drinks. Although the restaurant is mainly focused on organic food, there is always at least one vegetarian option for the three courses, as well as the owner and manager welcoming any vegans at all times. Their cuisine offers a variety of creative dishes with fresh, organically grown ingredients and always a personal touch. As the owner is a fan of music, a jazz band performs every Thursday evening, as well as Saturday evening entertainment being offered. The restaurant is open during the week and on weekends from morning to evening which is great, as other vegetarian restaurants in Marseille are closed during the weekends and in the evenings.
I had a raw vegan salad with fresh herbs for a starter (other options would have been lentil cream soup-vegan, or a selection of cheese), black rice with home-made vegan sausage, and a fresh fruit salad with a special home-made sugar dressing of herbs de Provence, meaning regional hand picked herbs. The band playing latin violin and piano music was a real treat, very authentic and offered great entertainment. Including some organic red wine and water, the dinner cost around 25 Euro.
I would really recommend this restaurant to anyone passing by Marseille, as the owners and staff are very friendly (children in the restaurant are very welcome, with a selection of games to choose from as well), very open minded and flexible in attending to customers preferences, the location is nice (infront of a pond in the city center where local markets take place), parking is easy, the food is excellent, fresh and organic, they offer a variety of entertainment and welcome young musicians, it is culturally very diverse concerning clientele and employees, and everyone seems to have had a great time there!

Pros: excellent, organic, fresh food, flexible, tolerant, friendly, open staff, family friendly

Cons: decoration, a bit more expensive compared to similar
