Marseille: the R2, party temple
Perched between sea and sky, above the harbor terraces, the R2 is both a hype restaurant : the Refectoire and a fabulous rooftop. At the Refectoire, the name of the restaurant, the decor displays an industrial heartfelt look: polished concrete, copper countertops, vintage furniture … and the menu includes seasonal and local products; well done: tapas with regional flavors. As for the rooftop, it extends over 1250 m2 offering a 360 ° view over the city and the Mediterranean. We can brunch there, enjoy cocktails and tapas, dance by the Mediterranean. The right plan? playing foosball, pinball or various gaming that Laurent de Gourcuff, head of the Refectoire has put everywhere, not to mention the bowling set on a terrace extending thorugh the restaurant.
