Good food. Waiters by so friendly

The food was excellent. Really typical French bistro type of cuisine. And in a beautiful location on a nice square with a beautiful fountain . Honestly everything you could possibly want when in the south of France. Our server barely spoke English and was quite rude. He often ignored us and seemed... read more

Our first experience in this restaurant was so nice that we returned again. We found the wait staff very polite and attentive. Their English was also good. We had a very nice enjoyable meal of good food. The location is off the beaten path a little in a nice little square, so that it's not as busy with people walking... More

Visited with family, relatively easy to find room for 4 adults +child +baby outdoors. English not their strength, but trying and managed OK. Vegetarian possible for some of us, my knuckle of lamb was very good. Better value than all those of the main square, and more peaceful. On balance perhaps the old town in general not the best place... More

I've been twice to this restaurant. The location is very nice, on a nice square with other restaurants. The menu has a good choice, the "a la carte" offers 3 dishes. Each dish that I have tried is fresh, well presented, good quantity. The service could be a bit more friendly, but it's ok. We didn't want to order a... More

It was our first dinner upon our arrival in the South of France - and what a start! We were 8 in total, 2 families each with two children, the oldest being my 17 year old nephew and the youngest my 11 year old son. It was also the night of the big final of the World Cup between Germany... More

Went here on a Friday night. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the location is lovely with a fountain nearby. Prices were reasonable and the food although not spectacular was perfectly OK. On balance a slightly above average restaurant.

I asked if I could have my steak rear, they recommended I have it medium rear. That's when the sketchy alarm went off. Before the food came, they brought me some red wine - warm. I thought they would know better. Once the food arrived, my steak was rubber-like. I cannot believe I paid for frozen food. This should be... More

This restaurant was deemed "american menu" which was attractive during our trip to South of France. The food was awful and the waiter was rude. They seemed very intolerant of Americans.

Nice Terrasse, not very expensive, friendly staff but super slow. Main problem is the food. Should be illegal to severe such terrible food. Everything is ready made from industrial food factory and heated at the restaurant. In Aix you have the choice, so dont go to the Bouddoir.
