Marseille for lunch

We're heading to Marseille tomorrow for some museum viewing around the 2013 cultural capital of Europe celebration. Should have asked earlier but wonder if anyone has some good suggestions --preferably typical Proven├žal and not too pricey.

Restaurants in 16th

thanks to all for your splendid suggestions; i've followed the France Chowhound board, and you once again came up to expectations. We ate at Caius on Friday night (Sept 21), and it was indeed what those who recommended said. Very nice atmosphere -- lively but not too noisy (a common complaint of ours) and definitely welcoming. The menu at 42 Euros was excellent. We had similar meals to those described by the person who discusses Caius today -- gambas, langoustines, canard laque. We also had the cochon fermier, which was delicious. Now to look into other suggestions!

Restaurants in 16th

We'll be staying at an apartment on rue Pergolese in the 16th during the last couple of weeks in September. I wonder if anyone can recommend some restaurants nearby.
We'd prefer something in the bistro mode, but are willing to try most anything, as long as it's not too expensive. We're both at home in French, so that's not an issue.
Also, before that we'll be spending a few days in Dijon. Any similar recommendations there?
BTW this is my first time writing on Chowhound, but i've very much enjoyed reading the discussions about France.
