We heard this place was popular with locals and emailed "in my best French" for a reservation and received a confirmation. It's safe to say that given my remedial French I may not have understood what was confirmed. In any case we were politely seated when they could not find my reservation. The atmosphere - imagine a city dwelling between... More

There are a lot of funny things for your eyes in the courtyard of the restaurant in which we had our dinner. We probably had the best table in the back corner without staff and guests walking around us during the evening. We chose the pepper beef steak and the one without and especially the pepper steak was perfect in... More

My girlfriend and I came here for lunch and we really enjoyed our meal! The ambience was really cool and the decorations were quirky (in a good way.) I ordered the steak of the day and my girlfriend ordered the lamb shank. The steak was cooked precisely but lacked a bit of flavor. The lamb shank was excellent! The staff... More

You'd be hard pressed to do a lot better than Le Patio if you're looking for dinner in Aix. I originally went a few months ago on the advice of a local co-worker and have been back again. Great atmosphere, amazing food (try the lamb shank - you won't regret it), and very gracious hosts. Absolutely recommend Le Patio!

We enjoyed our time here so much we visited twice during our stay in Aix. Cosy ambiance with friendly staff. Traditional, tasty French food prepared superbly. The steaks we had here were cooked exactly as requested. My one ordered bleu was perfectly charred on the outside and beautifully deep red inside. Very good local wine at a great price too.

We had lunch here and turned up by luck following Tripadvisor's score. Everything was perfect from service to food with a fun decorated courtyard!

I wanted to like this place, but unfortunately it was one of the worst meals I had in Aix. The duck and steak were both overcooked and tough and the vegetables were so soggy that I am sure they were frozen vegetables. For the fabulous markets that Aix has, there was no excuse to serve up vegetables like that. Pleasant... More

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
