Perfect location and good atmosphere

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

We called in to this restaurant around 10pm after having been to the cinema. We didn't feel like a big meal, just a glass of red wine and something light to eat. We perused the menu, did't see anything we felt like eating so we asked if it was possible for them to make up a cheese plate, even though... More

Our dinner was good enough, though indistinguished. Service was indifferent and inattentive--our waiter disappeared for long periods of time. For the price you can do better elsewhere in Aix.

I don't know if it was the particular staff the night we were there, or what. I've eaten at a lot of French restaurants in Provence, speak some French, understand French restaurant 'rules', am very patient, and have always been treated well even though I'm sure I don't look French. But I have never been treated quite like this. Three... More

Staying in an adjacent air BnB, L'Epicerie is our neighborhood restaurant. The tables sit outside around a fountain. On Sunday nights live music serenades the guests. The restauranteur busily shuttles bottles of wine for the evening's meal from the fridge to the grocery store of the same name at the head of the square. Food is fresh, well-seasoned, and delivered... More

I usually think of "ormeaux" as abalones, but in this case it is a kind of tree and there are, or were, 3 of them on this charming little plaza near the Église Madeleine in central Aix-en-Provence. There is a fine example of one of the famous Aix fountains in the middle of the plaza, where the restaurant L'Épicerie chills... More

Lovely setting, food was disappointing. Chicken was dry, salad was good, rice mushy. Go to the smaller restaurant the other side of the fountain for wonderful meal.
