“Great food and host!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We had arrived in Aix late on the last weekend in August and all the restaurants were packed (and closing). One of the other restaurants told us to check out L'Incontournable. It too was full, beautifully located in a courtyard by a fountain. The co-owner was so nice, he told us to come back in 30 minutes and he will seat us. We were so tired we came back in 15 minutes where he gave us each a lovely glass of rose' while we sat by the fountain... and wouldn't charge us for it! If that weren't enough the food was excellent and the waitress that helped us was so nice telling us about some local things to do and see. Great food, not over priced, wonderful service and completely non-pretentious. Go here if you are lucky enough to be in Aix!

“Beautiful presentation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The food is beautifully presented, tastes good and the service is very good. However just around the corner is L'alcôve and I would urge you to try them first.

“Amazing provincial food with a contemporary twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Great food in a small cozy place. I had the Onglet de boeuf - and it was out of this world. I was stuffed, but couldn't stop eating!!
