“Not the usual menu but delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We went in here for a little light salad. Well, the salads that came were so delicious and generous - lovely dressing and we really felt that we were eating quality ingredients. The staff were lovely too.
This restaurant offers a menu more varied than some more established places - do give it a try

“Interesting salads”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

On a cloudy evening, we ate in a mostly enclosed space in the plaza. We were almost continually exposed to low level smoke. The waiter started out less than friendly but became cooperative when we were able to place our orders in understandable (but probably not idiomatic) French. The menu has some very unusual choices. I had the "L'assiette Incas," which was a green salad topped with roasted vegetables, quinoa, chicken breast, and other things I don't recall. Very tasty and healthy to boot. We also had wine by the glass, although that was not listed on the menu. In summary, good food compromised a bit by a less than friendly waiter and by the smoke.

“Love the tartines and fresh salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is my favorite lunch spot in Aix. They have a good selection of large fresh salads, tarts (quiches, essentially) and tartines (I like to describe these as open-faced sandwiches). At other French restaurants, I'm usually disappointed to receive skimpy side salads without much variation - here, half the large plate is a salad, and they're delicious. Location is great too, in the middle of the Place Forum des Cardeurs, with outdoor seating and a large retractable cover overhead. Oh, and I've eaten here several times and have never had a problem with the servers, unlike a previous reviewer.

“rude waiter and ordinary food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Our salads were large but not fresh. When trying to get inattentive waiter's attention by raising the arm, we were chastised by our waiter and told that in France they do not snap fingers for attention. Actually that would be rude anywhere and it was not something we did or would do. So mediocre meal was further soured by that rudeness. So many other good places to eat in Aix - so one to be avoided.
