Very helpful and friendly wait staff. Chef was also very approachable and talked to most diners. The food was presented very creatively with an artful flair. The portions weren't large, but not miniscule either. Food tasted very good and the price was reasonable for a business type meal.

A cosy restaurant with an attentive and professional staff, a very modern and creative cuisine where the tastes and textures are in a perfect combination. Very good value for money!

I was pretty excited to try this restaurant after reading all the good reviews and seeing the "degustation menu"... well I tried it... and I really can't believe this place is rated so high. Overall the food is good, it's fresh, they use interesting, unusual and local ingredients. But after 2 dishes I quickly got the impression that the chef... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the place and the surprise meal which was not only delicious, but also very good value for money (about 49 Euros - I don't remember exactly ). You are free to indicate any ingredients someone doesn't like or is allergic to, and the kitchen will work around it. Highly recommended!

Had-written menu is always the key while walking the side streets of Aix, and this out of the way bistro is exceptional. Great value, simple but good wines, and the service among the best in the city for such a small operation.

While happy to get a reservation a day in advance, we were surprised that a number 7 tripadvisor restaurant was available. this is the busy season in aix. Let me start with the positive. 1. the complimentary smoked duck and cheese, on pesto toast was outstanding. 2. the wine list is solid for the region. 3. the nectarine dessert with... More

This is slightly to the edge of the city centre, so it is a little hard to find. The service is very friendly and polite. The food is exquisite for the price. It is obvious that the owners love good food and take pride of their restaurant. Would definitely go back.

The food was excellent, very French, and served in a beautiful way. The wine, Les Beattes, was superb and we later went to the vineyard to get a case for home. A bit pricey and with a limited menu, but what we had was excellent.

This restaurant is Michelan recommended but does not have a star, and who cares, its some of the best food we've had. The experience was amazing with friendly relaxed casual service, delivering some of the best creative and well thought delicious dishes ever. Please do yourself a favor and get the Degustation menu, letting the chef decide what you eat.... More

We had the most wonderful meal at Ze Bistro. The menu is contemporary, fresh and interesting. Our server was very accommodating and kind, and the chef/owner delivered our wine. It was a special experience!
