This restaurant is located past the busy square of bustling pizza, burger and tapas places. It's easy to miss, but worth searching out. The food is visually attractive and delicious. There's a varied menu of traditional and exotic. The restaurant itself extends into a courtyard enclosed by walls but with an open roof. This makes for a refreshing but intimate... More

My fiance and I located the amazing restaurant near our hotel thanks to Trip Advisor. We liked: The wait staff were patient and helped us with our poor French. Reasonable priced local and other delicious wine. The outstanding Ravioli and escargot appetizer could have been a full meal. The escargot was prepared unlike anything in the US and I will... More

Loved the clever decor but the food is even better. My duck foie gras was outstanding, as good or better than in the Dordogne. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his fish. Madame spoke English and helped with local wine selection. Don't miss Le Patio.

After walked around the center of Aix, we felt hungry and used the tripadvisor to find a place to eat something, and luckily, we found Le Patio. When we entered into it, wow, it is really a place where we can turn our tiring feel into a relaxing status. The inside decoration is very special, and it is behind the... More

Behind its modest exterior on an anonymous side street you find this charming restaurant with inspiring interior and open air backyard seating. We were greeted by very friendly staff who were kind enough to translate the menu. We found the food to be very well made and tasty. We also made two new friends as the owners two small dogs...

The atmosphere is casual funk. An interior courtyard with laundry hanging at one end. The service is top notch and the food is very good local cuisine. The fish dishes were very good, the wok with shrimp was sold out. Definitely a place we would go back to. Almost exclusively locals eat here.

We went on the recommendation of a local and had an amazing experience. Wonderful service, relaxed but charming atmosphere. The food was excellent and good value in France. Daube de joue de boeuf was fantastic. My 3 euro glass of wine was quite good too! They were very accommodating with my request for a dairy-free meal.

We were looking for a special place for a group dinner and found the perfect spot at Le Patio in Aix. It is tucked down a little street which feels just as quaint as the inside which is charming and warm. You are greeted with a warm welcome from the hostess to the wait staff. From the food to the...

Like most restaurants in the area it doesn't look much from the outside but is nice and warm inside. Food was great, reasonably priced, staff was lovely. Would go again.
