This restaurant has just opened and is located in a small alley called "rue Annonerie Vieille" on the right of the rue Bedarrides in the historic centre of Aix-en-Provence. The concept combines a restaurant for lunch, a board of tapas in the evening as well as regular acoustic concerts, literary debates and readings, art exhibitions and a small deco boutique. The Drole d'Endroit also has free wifi and welcomes people throughout the day for a coffee, a cup of tea (the tea list is quite extensive!), a piece of cake or a scone. The cuisine is Mediterranean and focuses on using mostly organic and locally-sourced ingredients. Once a week, the restaurant will also sell some organic vegetable hampers produced by a local farmer.

We were recommended this restaurant as non-touristy and off the beaten track so we decided to try it for a surprise get together. Everyone managed to find it located down a rather insalubrious back alley, but once inside it is quite quirky and fun. The staff were helpful and efficient and the food was good. The local wines were well... More

Six of us met here and enjoyed a reasonable meal that was well presented with very helpful English speaking staff. Not gourmet food but adequate especially for a group, as has a number of tables and plenty of staff to serve. The worst part was walking through urine and dog faeces down the narrow alley to get there! Put me... More

If we are in Aix at lunch time this is where we like to eat. Atmosphere and welcome is great. The food is always good and the price reasonable. It's not top gourmet food but good wholesome food which fills and satisfies.

Recommended to us by a local (with family connections.) Off the beaten tourist track. A friendly welcome in fluent english and a thorough explaination of the innovative menu. Delicious, satisfying meals. We were extremely pleased and can easily say it's the best meal we've eaten out in a very long time!

We arrived here almost by coincidence as this restaurant is a little hidden in the old quarter of aix-en-provence. It is well decorated, and is very enjoyable. The service is exceptionally kind, and the food great. Very nice meals, up and beyond the level of a brasserie, and a great price-quality balance. We took the vegetarian dish (although we are...

This place was a little hard to find and I would probably wouldn't be able to find it by myself again. Not too many tourist, which was a plus. The food was excellent; and changes seasonally. The patron was very friendly and explained all the dishes in French and English. Lovely bright welcoming decor.

sort of hard to find, on what some in these parts call the 'rue de pisse,' in essentially a tiny alley. The restaurant though is hidden away, all the better, a tiny little terrace is usually set up out front. Very good for the provençal specialties, good fish too. Not a tourist restaurant
