This was on my list of restaurants based on other TA reviews. Navigating the winding streets of Aix with a hotel map can be a little tricky, but you will not be disappointed when you finally get here. We actually tried for lunch on a Monday, but they were closed so we ended up coming back the next day and... More

Went here with colleagues and clients for an evening meal. I was very surprised by the excellent service and very good food. I had artichoke pot for appetiser and it was very good. Main dish was duck and it was served with perfection. The creme brûlée for dessert was maybe a little less good, but all together this is a... More

A delightful little restaurant in the quaint streets of Aix-en-Provence.... The staff were helpful and did their best to describe any dishes that weren't familiar with, even though there was a bit of a language barrier. The food was really really delicious, Hubby had steak which was cooked to perfection and I had the duck, which was likewise perfectly done... More

After a long journey from Australia, locating our apartment at 18 Victor Leydet, The Patio is next door and we took a chance that this restaurant had quality restaurant food. We were not let down and had a variety of main menus and followed by delicious desserts, and house Rose. We felt that the prices were average as we had... More

Not much English spoken here, but great fun anyway! The enclosed outdoor patio is the reason to go. The decor is such fun! It makes the experience delightful even before the food and wine arrive! The staff are very friendly and laugh at the communication difficulties. We got the food we wanted and had a wonderful evening!

The hotel recommended this place for dinner. In my opinion restaurants are overpriced in Aix en Provence so I would never be very impressed about the price. Nevertheless comparing with other restaurants this was better in regards to quality-price. The wine was very nice and the staff tried their best to comunicate with us in English and Spanish. Food was... More

The main part of the restaurant is in an internal courtyard, which has some charm but somewhat outdated. We ordered à la carte. Overall, the dishes were good but nothing exceptional.

We went to Le Patio for lunch on our first day in Aix-en-Provence. In our two weeks in France this was for me the most enjoyable restaurant experience we had. It has a relaxed and almost homely atmosphere and the outdoor terrace in the back looked very nice, but it was already full when we arrived. The manager was so... More

Wow! This restaurant is incredible! Great atmosphere, staff and the food is delicious! I chose "Le Patio" (as a random choice from reviews on TripAdvisor) one night for dinner and was so glad I did! The setting was really nice, the staff were lovely to talk to and the food was incredible! (So nice we came back 2 nights later!)... More

It's a mystery why there are many positive reviews here. The owners are enthusiastic and welcoming but simply not skilled or professional. This is not a quality restaurant. Food was well below par and the service by untrained young men was polite but an incompetent and muddled embarrassment. There are so many good restaurants In Aix it was a shame... More
