L'incontournable is the 'best'

We also heard about this restaurant from Janike of Discover Provence tours (as noted in earlier reviews) and made reservations for that evening.

I left a glowing review a while back but feel I must updated it. I had lunch here during the week and the menu was completely different from the last couple times I ate there (weekend lunch). The menu was very pared down with e.g. no appetizers. Entrées were good, but not nearly at the level I've known before. I... More

Fortunately we had booked a table for our visit on the Saturday night before Christmas. The restaurant was really busy....several families with teenagers; several groups of well dressed young people, maybe end of exam students or professionals. All seemed local, many obviously known to the staff. However, taking our table for 2 and obviously one-off visitors, we were made to... More

It took a while to order. It was pleasant sitting outside though heavy traffic lessened the atmosphere. The food was creative, with mixed results. The duck was delicious.

My husband and I visited this restaurant with another couple. We were all pleased with our food choices which included fish and a beef daube. The location is very pleasant on a small square with a fountain. Table wines were good. Would definitely recommend. Prices good for the quality of the food.

We were seated outside by the fountain on a lovely autumn evening. My husband and I each chose a three course meal option. The food was very good from start to finish. We each had the shrimp mouse to start the evening. I had a nicely prepared fish while my husband enjoyed the duck. My meal was complete with a... More

After the mediocrity of many Aix restaurants, this restaurant is a find! The outdoor dining in a small square by a fountain provides a bit of charm to a great dining experience. The food is excellently prepared and changes seasonly. I have eaten there twice (the first time I had an excellent salmon as part of their summer menu; and... More

The food was beautifully cooked with amazing range of flavours. The staff were friendly and helpful. Julian was a star! A very popular place so you. Eyed to book. Can be a bit noisy outside. Do try the peach soup dessert. Amazing!

Hidden away in a small residential square, away from the hustle and bustle. Only a few tables, a chef and a waiter. Both very helpful and the waiter was very entertaining to boot. The food was really excellent, imaginative, well presented and delicious. There is also a 3-course set menu (I think it was 29 or 32 euros).
