Every time I went to La Cantine, I was greeted by the same two fabulous waiters. Usually the outdoor seating was full, but they would always give me "my" perfect table. As a solo traveller, they were friendly and managed to make sure I was taken care of. The food was never a disappointment: fresh, creative, and quite tasty. While... More

Went with 2 couples and found the staff to be unhappy and unattentive. Finaly got to order and 1 of the 3 mains was not available so 3 of us ordered the lamb and a bottle of wine. Wine arrived then 5 minutes later we were told they have no lamb. As it was almost an hour after arriving we... More

A great place for a casual light lunch. The food & service are not fantastic but agreeable & there is the added benefit of sampling something different. The Ambiance is lovely, so I would definitely go again & it's not too expensive.

We have been to La Cantine several times, and it never fails to please. Our last visit included a light and creamy mushroom gnocchi, a lovely cheesy stuffed eggplant, beef carpaccio, and salads all around. Nice glasses of rose, and a beer. The service is friendly, the setting is very "Aix" and we just love it here!

We arrived late into town on our first night in Aixe en Provence from the train and they were very kind. So we returned for a meal later in the week. It was an excellent meal in a beautiful setting. Very quiet and the food was very good. thank you

Our first night in Aix and we found this spot. It was perfect, in a quiet hidden corner, under trees with a great atmosphere. Corsican food was predominant, and this was just so good. Ideal spot away from the maddening crowd, classy, yet not imposing. We will go back as a treat before we leave in a few days time

We had a fabulous lunch here after it was recommended by a wonderful local gourmet guide. We all enjoyed market fresh salads chock full of delicious, unusual ingredients--I wish I had that salad right now!!! We were disappointed when the outdoor seating area was full, as indoors was less than special--however, once we were seated inside and saw a table... More

We ate at La Cantine last night. We ordered the Corsican Sampler and a Salade Perigourdine. Both were very tasty. The meat on the Sampler was high quality and very fresh. The Salade Perigoudine had a warm vinaigrette which really enhanced the flavor and the small piece of fois gras was delicious, served on toast with Corsican Orange Marmelade. We... More
