The food was good and the prices reasonable but the chef/owner's demeanour was brusque and unfriendly. Whether taking the reservation in person, greeting/seating us or serving, he appeared disinterested and perfunctory and consequently the ambiance left much to be desired. It is a very small restaurant with inside and outside seating, weather permitting, and the one person does the cooking... More

Make sure you book in advance and if you plan on staying multiple days in Aix-en-Provence, book 2 dinners there... More

Two entrees of generous proportion, two desserts, two wine glasses - about 50Eu, making it exceptional value. I oils gladly pay double for this... More

We visited La Cerise Sur Le Gateau on our final night in Aix, and it was an incredible meal. The owner took our order, waited on our table, and cooked the meal all by himself, and we could tell that it was truly a labor of love. I ordered the alouettes (amazing), and my husband had the guinea fowl (delicious).... More
