This restaurant has just opened and is located in a small alley called "rue Annonerie Vieille" on the right of the rue Bedarrides in the historic centre of Aix-en-Provence. The concept combines a restaurant for lunch, a board of tapas in the evening as well as regular acoustic concerts, literary debates and readings, art exhibitions and a small deco boutique. The Drole d'Endroit also has free wifi and welcomes people throughout the day for a coffee, a cup of tea (the tea list is quite extensive!), a piece of cake or a scone. The cuisine is Mediterranean and focuses on using mostly organic and locally-sourced ingredients. Once a week, the restaurant will also sell some organic vegetable hampers produced by a local farmer.

Excellent and original

What a nice diner we had in this very original atmosphere: you are in a art gallery. You can imagine to have such a nice restaurant in this small dark street. But the menu is awesome. Delicious homemade dishes, very original and tasteful. Service very good. Prices are correct.

I really enjoyed the lunch that we had at this unusual restaurant which is also an art gallery. I had an unusual dish which was delicious and I was congratulated by the host. Others had more conventional dishes which were equally good.

Do not miss going to the restaurant. I had the duck margret and my husband had the pluma de pata negra pork. Both dishes were the best we've had so far in France and we started our trip with a Michelin star restaurant. If you want great, fresh well prepared food in place that feels like it's where the locals... More

This place ticks all the excellent boxes ! Hidden in a small side street in Aix. Drole d'Endroit, literally "an unusual place". Nicely decorated, very warm greeting and friendly service. The cooking is creative and tasty, there is a vegetarian option. Being vegan they even adapted the vegetarian dish to my needs. A place well worth eating at when in... More

Loved the atmosphere, service was great and food a real surprise. We have eaten at most of the restaurants in Aix now and this is one of the best value places we have found. We keep coming back.

We had to book our table for Drôle d'Endroit having not been able to get in the previous night. The food was very inventive and the flavours were from all over the globe. Staff and owners were delightful and were very helpful when it came to my odd dietary requirements.

A group of us tried out this slightly irreverent restaurant and found it an exciting stylistic change. The decor itself is interesting and the food is excellent. Bring your appetite. Some of the carnivores on the group found today's roast beef offering to be delicious, while the vegetarians enjoyed some of the combination played that were filled with a variety... More

You need to go here! Not easy to find but it is worth while the search. Staff is passionate about food and their restaurant. You need to make a reservation since it is very popular. They serve honest but great food. We enjoyed every bite.
