Delightful lunch off the main thoroughfares.

A delicious lunch under the trees with minimal surrounding traffic or crowds. The wine recommendations of little known local wineries were terrific. I thought the prices were reasonable for the quality of fare.

Lovely setting on the square. Excellent well prepared food. I have never been let down and the food is local and adjusted to what available for the season. Superb service. Its pricy but definitely worth it. The food is way above average and the location is perfect.

service pretentious,food poor,starters devoid of taste or imagination,main meal not much better,wine overpriced. So sorry I had not looked it up on tripadvisor before we went it would have saved a lot of money. So many other good restaurants in Aix where the food is excellent.Avoid this one.

I have a fairly extensive experience of reviewing restaurants and I happen to know the city of Aix very well. All I can say about this restaurant is, don't get fooled by the location. Their kitchen is a tiny room above the restaurant, without all the necessary means to be categorized as a proper restaurant. The food is pricy for... More

Located in a lovely square where is easy to find but not as crowded as others. The waitress speaks good English and is very friendly. The food is OK a bit over price though, but what you paid is actually for the relaxing atmosphere I think.

I will start by saying that they tried to make us happy by giving us a bottle of wine for free and a digestif after the meal ( only after I did some serious complaining...). I have been to this place several times and previously written a very positive review. This night all went wrong and I will not take... More

80.- € for two, lunch, good but not notable fresh or any special, one salad, two mains, two glasses of wine. The service was nice, but gave us the most expensive wine when we just ordered 2 glasses of rose. Sad, because location and atmosphere are really good. But to value the restaurant and not the square I can't give... More

Aix is famous for its grand fountain and the people-watching along the Cours Mirabeau. If you have been-there-done-that or just want a pass on being amongst the crowds, here is a charming little corner of Aix that will whet your whistle and appease your appetite. Go to the end of the Cours, pass the statue of the Roi Rene; go... More
