Having just been to a Michelin *** restaurant where we were treated as intruders, the welcome at this restaurant was so pleasant, from the booking to the bill.

Eating here is simple. There are basically 2 menus with no a la carte. This ensures that the kitchen is on top of the preparation, and are not fussing around the individual demands of diners. This does not mean inflexibility, they do try to comply with individual requests.

The meal was visually and tastefully amazing. Yes the servings are small, but they are so many. The dishes that remain in my memory was that perfect little egg on a round of bread , obviously cooked under careful temperature control. Then there was the sous-vide foie gras, just melt in your mouth.

Just when you think the meal has ended, there are two separate desserts.

Very careful pouring of the wine. Just matches the food serving. I hate restaurants that fill your glass as soon as a few sips have been taken.

A great place.

this is just an amazing restaurant. The food is as wonderful to look at as it is to eat. Cost was 133 euro per head but worth every penny.

We first came across this restaurant the last time we were on holiday in Aix-en-Provence. It is on its own in a small rather dingy street a long way from the majority of the other restaurants in the old town. You are unlikely to find it by walking round, unless you are very lucky!

The first time we ate here we thought it was fine but could do better. We could see what the chef was trying to do. He succeeded with many of the dishes we ate but some needed a little more work. This year we were back in Aix and thought we would give the restaurant another try. We are glad that we did.

We did not go for the full taster menu but the reduced "Les Amateur" menu. We enjoyed all the dishes, without exception! Particularly the Pot au Feu revisited. The scallop dish was cooked to perfection. We thought it was daring to present an egg as the main ingredient of the main course and so we were looking forward to see what could be done with it. This turned out to be a very tasty and enjoyable dish. So full marks for the food.

The problem of a taster menu of any length, when there is only two of you, is picking a suitable wine. The menu was accompanied by a suggested list of wines, sold by the glass. As you will understand this is an expensive way to buy wine. The volume per glass is also small, by UK standards (5 or 6 cl/glass), so that you do not get slaughtered by the end of the meal! However, you do not have to buy all the wines on the suggested list. The prices for bottles of wine were more reasonable and so we opted to buy a bottle of white which would complement most of the dishes and supplemented it with a glass each of the red suggested for the main course.

The decor is modern but comfortable. The service was good, and overall I would say that we had a lovely meal and a very good time. We will definitly be back the next time we are in town.

The service is outstanding. The food is both inventive and delicious. But I'd argue that, for the price, each of the tasting menus contained one (non-dessert) dish too few. If it's going to be exorbitant, you better not leave hungry. Oh, and the server left us waiting to pay the bill for over 45 minutes at the end, which somewhat marred the experience. I honestly believe he was playing games with us. It was pretty slow (on a Friday night!); I think he was attempting to cure his boredom by getting a rise out of us. Didn't work.

I am sure you will be surprised. We chose the tasting house menu. Besides the appetizers, the start was rather peculiar and at first we thought we would regret the choice, but after that we came close to heaven each course that arrived was better than the previous one. The sommelier wine indications were also outstanding. At each new course the chief's wife came to explain what was being served. Well, certainly one best meals we have ever had. We crave to come back.
