Best meal we have had in the five weeks we have been travelling. Chef was very accommodating to our children and made them a delicious chicken with roasted potato dish which they loved. There are a choice of two set three course menus which are very reasonably priced. Couldn’t fault any of our meals - LOVE this place and will return before we leave Aix

We loved the ambiance of this little bistro, and the service was friendly and not intrusive, very competent. But the dishes were ordinary. Paella is not just rice with flavors--it has substance, with vegetables and meats or seafood or both added to the rice at the right times. It develops a crust on the bottom which is often the tastiest part. To cook some rice with similar seasonings in a small metal pan and then add some shrimp or duck or cheese is not to make a paella. That's only one thing, there were several that were disappointing. Sometimes I think most reviewers on TripAdvisor don't eat in restaurants often, or are easily impressed by the presentation of a dish, rather than its composition. The reviews are not so reliable, from my perspective. Nice wine list, local and well chosen. Very nice welcome, that made it pleasant, but the food only average.

I visited this bistro following thé suggestions on m’y Franch friend. The location is in the centre of Aix juste close to the « rotonde «  . It’s small but nice. The menu is not huge 4 choices for the entree 4 for the main course and some desserts. All the dishes are accurately prepared and very good tasty. Personnel friendly and speaking a very good English is helping you in the choice! Do not forget to taste the wine, rose’ if girls are with you!
Price in line with the zone perfectly readable in the menu!

This tiny restaurant captured our hearts. Charming and intimate, with friendly service and amazing looking and tasting food. Also, the rosé is excellent.

Great restaurant in a side street off the main tourist fares, a small and individual menu that changes regularly (unfortunately not on their website, so no pre-info) but is really worth it. Two three-course-menues (33 and 42 euros) with options to choose from. Very accommodating re: vegetarian options, just asked and they switched out a few things so it really worked. Service was great, too. In all, this was a great option. Thanks for a great dinner.
