Marseille Sunday Lunch

Will be in Marseille on a Sunday in May and looking for a nice, non-touristy restaurant around Old Town for lunch.
Many of the restaurants that I have seen on internet are closed on Sundays.
Enjoy local French cusine; , duck, salads, cheese, etc.
Outside dinning would be a plus.

I'll assume that by "Old Town" you mean the Panier area?
Restaurants there and along the Vieux Port are hit-or-miss. I've had good, relatively recent experiences at Au Bout du Quai, right on the Vieux Port, close to Mucem. They have a terrace and are open Sunday.
Within the Panier itself, most places with a terrace don't look great. Au Coeur du Panier has been recommended to me, but I never tried it.

Duck is not local to Marseille, by the way - it's a southwestern dish, not Provençal.
