A little gem and a must in old town Aix

We had our last and most memorable meal in Aix at this restaurant, funnily enough on the same street where we had our apartment rental. My co diners are quite fussy about their food-and not one of us was disappointed from the get go. The restaurant on street level is tiny, with an alfresco option... read more

We spent one evening in the Alcôve since it was recommended by our B&B host. We definitely did not regret our choice since the food was just excellent. As a matter of fact, it was the best food we had in Aix, the price quality ratio is excellent.

A fantastic restaurant, we loved it so that we went the next day again :-) especially the ravioli with gamba's (with the dried tomatoe). The owner was very friendly and attendfull. The main course is also very tastefull. Excellent dishes for very reasonable price! A very very good restaurant that I certainly advice everyone else.

We first eat here in June 2013 whilst staying in a house nearby. This time, we were staying in Aix on our way down to the Cote D'Azur and we had to return here for another meal. The weather was atrocious but we marched around the town hoping that as we turned the next corner we would find this restaurant.... More

We were traveling through Aix-en-Provence and wanted some lunch but it was getting late. I saw the reviews for this place and even though it was late, they stayed open and made us a wonderful meal. Everything from the salad to dessert was great. The owner, who was also our waiter, worked so hard to make the meal memorable. We... More

We read about this restaurant on Trip Advisor. We were a bit put off by the exterior but went there even though the adjacent restaurant was much busier. We were glad we did. This was the best mackerel I have ever tasted (and that is after more years than I will admit) The hot beef marrow in the bone was... More

Our B&B proprietor had this at the top of his list of restaurant recommendations, and it exceeded our expectations. The food was terrific, and the service was gracious and efficient. My entree was octopus and my husband's was sea bass; both were excellent. Our waiter, we later learned, was one of the two owners; the other is the chef. We... More

My wife and I ate dinner here on 5th June. The waiter worked extremely hard serving all the tables. Rue Constantin is a quiet street but only two cars came up the street during the whole evening as we sat outside for dinner. The waiter was absolutely charming as well as being very efficient. I had a very tasty aubergine... More

The service is great, and so is the food. First went for the millefeuille and then for the poulpes (octopus). One of the better cuisines in Aix-en-Provence.
