This was definately one of our top favorites of all the restaurants we had dined in while both in Provence and Paris. The staff was warm and welcoming and even offered us menus in English. This was very helpful. The food was creative and fresh and I can't rave enough about it. I had the fois gras terrine with langostines... More

The best meal we had in Aix, Modern French. Innovative cuisine. Not overpriced for what you get. Tried to return on a Wed. but restaurant was closed that night.

if not for the reviews onTripadvisor we probably would not have eaten at Le Poivre d'Ane since it was located on the very touristy Forum des Cardeurs. How lucky we were to have read the reviews. We were able to secure a reservation on the square on a lovely October evening. My husband had escargot as a starter, we both... More

The meal was good, but nothing special. We had the tasting menu. The portion is just right. Every course was very good, but nothing was memorable. It tasted like all other "nice" meals we had before. My husband really like the overall experience, include food presentation, food quality, service, and ambient.

We went to Le Poivre D'Ane based on TA reviewer comments and enjoyed it so much that we booked a reservation for the next night before leaving. The food is exceptional and the 3 course fixed price menu provides plenty of choices. Our favorite starters were the Iberian pork filet w sautéed foie gras and the scallops with lobster bisque...

We walked past this place and disregarded it, as it had an outdoor terrace, and thought it was the same as the other tourist traps that serve ubiquitous and poorly cooked dishes. Upon further research (read: checked Trip Advisor) we decided to give this place a go. No regrets. Was brilliant. Lovely amuse bouche, delicious three courses and a nice... More

We were lucky to get a reservation a couple hours before dinner. So glad we did!! They give the option to do a la carte, but why bother when it's so much more fun (and a better deal) to do the prix fixe for 37 euro? For our first course my husband had the zucchini and I got the scallops.... More

There are many restaurants in Aix's Place des Cardeurs, and most of them are mediocre at best. Don't let its location discourage you--this place is great. We've been fortunate enough to visit Aix 11 times over the past 14 years, and Poivre D'Ane remains our "must go to" restaurant in a town with many restaurants. The service is as good... More

On a packed / touristy square you could be forgiven for thinking this was another run of the mill 'burger' place...but it isn't! It's fantastic, great staff, very interesting menu with some superb dishes such as the foie gras terrine with langoustines, herb crusted lamb and strawberry cheesecake - awesome fine dining at reasonable price for this kind of food.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel, The staff was very friendly and welcoming, but I must say I was a bot disappointed in the menu and the food. We had to make the reservation 3 days in advance, so maybe they had an off night?
