My friends and I found this restaurant on trip advisor and were so glad we did! The menu was great, I ordered the steak with a side of potatoes gratin (amongst other vegetables) and it was honestly the best steak I've ever had in my life. The owner and wait staff are also very lovely and friendly. We were very... More

Everything we had was magnificent and the family staff was so welcoming. What a wonderful evening! The lamb shank was excellent. The steak au poive was mild yet perfectly flavored and the raspberry "Charlotte" was a memorable desert for my son's 12th birthday.

There is no outside dining in this location, so don't think that there is a real "patio" space off the street. The decor is eclectic collections of stuff - here a bevy of small chalkboards, there a flock of clocks and overhead, a clothesline with a selection of white shirts, aprons and what-not hanging across the back wall. This appears... More

The wife is out of town, so I figured I'd give this place a try. Comfortable restaurant, pleasant service and great food. Had the beef tartar and foie gras, both were excellent. Another couple were seated at a table in the middle of the restaurant (to their dislike) but as soon as another table opened up, the hostess asked them... More

We really enjoyed our visit to patio. They were very easy to make reservations with and very accomodating with our subsequent amendments. Food was very enjoyable (although i felt for the price point, the prawns were overcooked and underseasoned). All very nice and the staff did a great job but seemed a tad understaffed and under pressure. The wait for... More

We enjoyed a truly excellent lunch at Le Patio. We would not have found, let alone chosen, this restaurant had it not been for previous enthusiastic reviews. It is hidden away in a narrow side street in central Aix with an entrance that is extremely modest. The interior design is an eclectic, quirky mixture of knick knacks but don't be... More

This restaurant is very cute, with a bit of a kitschy vibe. It appeared to be family run, though I'm not 100% sure. Regardless, dinner there was one of the top 3 we had on our 2-week trip to France. While the service was a little bit uneven, this was mostly due to a huge party that came in a... More

After having already been in France for almost a week, I have had some great meals, but the food here was extraordinary. The care and attention given by the staff was also fantastic. I will recommend this place to everyone I can!

Don't be put off by the front door this is a gem of a restaurant with a thematic twist. Nestling between 2 buildings this venue makes an art form of its unusual location through quirky decor. The food is good and the family are extremely friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit if in old Aix.

Delicious food, impeccable, friendster service, funky decor. Worth a detour. One of the best in Aix. Foie gras especially good, as was the double salmon (tartare and rilettes) entrée. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Thank dynamightnt
