Exceptional food. You must go.

We walked along all the lanes and streets in Aix until we found Mitch. Luckily they had a table for two free but it's worth making a reservation. We opted for 3 courses at 49 euro. Every dish was exceptional and the waiter explains each dish once it has been served. I had foie gras, sea bass and a... read more

Tucked down a side street but close to a lively square, Mitch's restaurant was the best find in our weekend break to Aix. Food was imaginative both in preparation and presentation and full of interesting combinations and textures. My husband particularly enjoyed the (notorious) foie gras served almost like a mille fueille. The menu is on the shorter side which... More

Fantastic address in Aix en Provence and still at a sensible price. Service and food leave up our expectations every time. Quite simply the safe harbour.

Mitch was an excellent find on a major plaza in Aix en Provence. The owner personally welcomed us into this tiny establishment in spite of us not having a reservation. We were not disappointed. The gazpacho, which was compliments of the chef, set the stage for the excellent meal. A persoal touch was applied throughout the serving of fresh and... More

Wonderfully prepared food with a complete explanation(in perfect English) of what you are about to eat. The octopus , the preparation of which I find to be a test of fine preparation, was perfect, not too soft and,not rubbery. It was just right. The fish was as good as my wife and I have ever had. The service was first... More

We were referred to Mitch but I still was cautious since these small restaurants in old town have surprised me good and bad. But it all started with a very friendly and passionate owner, Mitch, who made sure we were taken care of. The courses were delicious, one more beautifully presented than the other. Although two garbage trucks drove next... More

The meal at Mitch was the most beautiful I have ever eaten. My husband and I chose separate menus so we could enjoy both. They were tasty and fun to eat. Mitch was a delightful owner and paid attention to each table, doing whatever he could to keep the courses moving, glasses filled and tables cleaned. We would definitely return!

We visited Chez Mitch not once, but went back again. Delicious, fresh food with fabulous presentation. The sauces were light and flavorful. Must try the lemon tart for dessert. Specials change. All were delicious.
