“Excellent bio food in beautiful Aix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We were lucky to find a place here. The restaurant is tiny so book in advance. The food is healthy and genuine, we loved it! The owner was also very friendly.

“A simple but cosy organic food restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Secluded in a winding street of historic Aix-en-Provence, this restaurant is very simple : the chef works on his own and serves a small crowd (seating 6 inside, plus 4 to 6 on the terrace when temperature allows). However the decor is nice and cosy, and the food really nice. He offers half a dozen different dishes made from organic ingredients and inspired from local provencal and Asian (Indian) cuisines - some dishes are vegetarian. And then a few desserts too. Choice of wine is limited. Overall the experience is of a friendly, simple and sympathetic one-man "show".

“Simply excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

This very small restaurant caught us by surprise. Walking the alleys of Aix-en-Provence searching for something interesting and different for lunch, my wife and I (and infant son) happened upon La cerise sur le gateau. The menu was small and simple, but the focus on organic and local foods appealed to us. It did not disappoint. The flavors in both of our dishes were excellent. The unexpected touches of herbs and spices on my sardine salad were perfect. The next time we are in Aix-en-Provence we will definitely return here.
