A pleasant evening after a very full day.

A very welcoming and helpful staff, whether in French, English, Spanish, etc. Quiet , professional, completely unpretentious. The home-made fois gras is exceptional, the main courses excellent bistro fare. The house red falls short of the food so order something better

Modern decor, good soundtrack, helpful service. I had pumpkin soup and then lamb shank. Both were good, although in need of seasoning.

This restaurant came highly recommended, including by our hotel. But it turned into a disappointing, tiring experience. They were quite busy when we got there, so were expecting somewhat of a delay in service. But no menus for 30 minutes? And that long again to take our order? The owner at one point early on stopped but our table, very... More

The steak we ordered was not cooked to requirements and was very tough and Inedible. They also ran out of beer early in the evening. Poor stock control. It was overpriced for the quality of the food.

Me and my wife were wandering around in Aix looking for a restaurant but undecided. Bumped into La Tamate Verte after a long walk and got a pleasant surprise. The service by the lady was very good and friendly. We tried a beef and a lamp, both were good. The starter (fro gras) and the desert (chocolate cake) were also... More

We where looking for a place to eat, in mis day, mid August, in mid AIX. Luckily we found a place here. A small restaurant in the middle of the street. We felt it will be OK but were surprised with the excellent food. The Gaspachio was amazing!

Had dinner here while in Aix and enjoyed the coziness and ambience and the food. Very friendly owners who were very attentive throughout our wonderful dinners of duck breast and lamb. Located in a very pedestrian friendly neighbourhood not far off le Cours Mirabeau. We were guided through the menu by the staff and followed their recommendations and the meal... More

I've lived in Aix for a year now (and in France for 8 years) so have had a good chance to try out different restaurants. Coming here was a big mistake - everything about it was just awful - I was cross for the whole day thinking of the money and time we had wasted there. Service was slack and... More

Perhaps the first mistake I made was to order beef in France. What I received was a slab of fatty, grissly meat, served solo on a wooden platter, with a bowl of frites on the side. The meat was tasteless, poorly prepared, and not very pleasant to behold. My wife had another dish, which was equally tasteless. Neither of us... More
