Tasty lunch spot

We had lunch here on the recommendation of our tour guide and were not disappointed. I jealously looked on at my partner's meat and cheese platter, which was delicious. Nothing wrong with my salad, just plate envy on my part! Wonderful finish to the meal with a café gourmand, a coffee with three... read more

Came across this wine/meats/cheeses bistro. Excellent wine list! Ignore the negative reviews regarding service, the waiters were enormously friendly and helpful. The meat and cheese platters were very very good. The wine list was also very good. Nice slightly quieter area to sit outside. Would recommend.

Very friendly staff and excellent yet simple and delicious food in a quiet square. Exceptionally child friendly with child seats and flexible on what we needed for our one year old son.

Bit off the beaten track, on the edge of the legal district. Corsican restaurant. 4 of us went last night after a big day drive up to Avignon. Arrived early, around 8 pm. We found the staff very attentive and helpfull. Good choice of both cold and hot food. 2 of us had Lamb shanks, 1 ham and truffle risotto... More

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
