In the heart of the Belsunce district of Marseille, hidden amongst the gems of Rue du Baignoir, is one of the few restaurants in France, or albeit the world, that takes on the art of slow food, and for that matter, slow living, with more grace and provenance than GRAIN DE SABLE.

Their products are local, organic and in-season, sourced from a single farmer who delivers what’s available at the beginning of each week. The menu and quantity of meals, creatively created daily, is a response to the produce received rather than the other way around.

There are two vegan and two gluten-free options, to be enjoyed outdoors or within the cool stone walls dressed with recuperated wood flooring and furniture which welcome you indoors.

Each plate is consciously created waste-free, meaning at the end of a week of service, only one bucket of compostables (delivered back to the farm it came from) and one small bag of recyclables, is produced despite the numerous plates and people served.

The hours of operation are a slim and specific selection of time; just Monday – Friday, in the afternoon only, for 2.5 hours total, so the owner can spend the most valuable hours of the day with his young daughter. 

LE GRAIN DE SABLE don't aim to be famous, they don’t have to. Their food and philosophy are respected and adored by all who go there. The stress-free rhythm keeps a roof over their head, smiles on their faces, and passion in their hearts; a formula which translates into care, for food and the world around them, creating an underlining ambience of affinity which leaves you feeling full. Heart, stomach and soul.
