Nice environment, good food and courteous service. The only disappointment was that the food was served super fast, i.e. two to three minutes after we ordered the food was already on the table. Still worth visiting.

While wandering Aix in search of dinner, we happened upon Jacquou le Croquant (there's a French movie of the same name, but not sure if there's any other translation). The rear of the restaurant is an intimate courtyard, which creates a pleasant outdoor experience, minus the street traffic. The menu claims that JLC was the first restaurant in Aix to... More

As we wandered the streets of Aix-en-Provence, we realized it was lunchtime, and we wanted to have a special meal. We found our way to Jacquou le Croquant, and were not disappointed. We entered off the street through the kitchen, warmly welcomed by madame, and encouraged to take a seat on the charming interior courtyard (this was one of he... More

This restaurant has a nice little atrium with a wonderful atmosphere. They primarily serve duck and rabbit, so if you are a vegetarian look elsewhere. The food is good, I had a foie gras salad with duck pate and slices of roasted duck. The waiters were polite, but they were not particularly accommodating maybe due to a lack of proficiency... More

We ate dinner at Jacquou le Corquant twice. The first night we ordered two pate appetizers, cassoulet for my wife and another main course for me. One appetizer and the cassoulet would have fed at least two hungry adults. The food was fresh and tasty. The prices were reasonable, including the price for a pleasant bottle of red wine Because...

We were attracted to the perry courtyard setting and the fact that the place was full. There are lots of choices, including a number of set menus. Next time we would choose a fixed menu - price would be cheaper. Fortunately there is an English language menu - I say fortunately because there are lots of choices that are a... More

Stopped here with my fiance for lunch during a day trip to Aix. After passing lots of touristy places, we stumbled upon this place, and were very glad we did. What first caught our eyes was the outdoor area behind the restaurant (which you can see from the front doors). We were seated outside in their adorable little courtyard, and... More

Very good food at a good value. The courtyard is lovely, and I would rate the food at a 9. I had a duck meat and pate salad followed by a crepe with duck and beef inside, drizzled with a light but flavorful melted cheese. I asked the server to suggest a wine, and it paired wonderfully with the meal.... More

I enjoyed one of my favourite meals here - I had the small prix fixe. The food was very fresh here - the salad with mixed greens and a mix of cheeses and mustard vinaigrette, the vegetable crepe and the chocolate dessert was exceptional. The server was friendly - but be ready for a slow paced night. It took over... More
