“Perfection in Provence!”
Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

Down a side alley from the main boulevard in Aix au Provence is a jewel of a restaurant! The atmosphere is completely charming and the hidden patio a delight. The staff was gracious and welcoming, and very attentive. The cuisine was perfect...from the very fresh melon salad and divine artichoke 'stew', to the lamb shank that fell off the bone and extremely well prepared Saltimboca. We ate every morsel on our plates and left no room for the desserts, which we could see our fellow diners devouring. You will love it!

“Do not leave Aix without going to this restaurant!”
Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

We took trip advisors recommendation and decided to try this restaurant. We were immediately made welcome. The ambience was delightful. Sofie, the owner designed the interior of the restaurant which is stylish and unique. The service was impecible. The staff were helpful and attentive to all our needs. We dont speak French at all. Sofie translated the entire menu and stayed with us until we had decided on our orders. i had the salmon entre and my wife chose the anti pasti provenceaux. Both were delicious and beautifully presented. For mains I had a beef fillet with pepper sauce and my wife decided on the sweet and sour duck. Both dishes were very nice and the serves were generous. Dessert also did not disappoint. All in all we would highly recommend thsi restaurant and intend to return next time we are in Aix en Provence.

“Wonderful decor, great food”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

This is the sort of place where you feel comfortable the minute you walk in the door. The decor is whimsical and creative, the service friendly and attentive. We were very pleased with the food, which was excellent and well prepared. Definitely a place I'd recommend. I hope to return.

“We loved Le Patio”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We were in Aix for 5 weeks and ate at Le Patio 4 times. It was our favourite restaurant. The 2 ladies hostessing and serving were lovely and they both spoke english which is a bonus! The food was amazing. We had Foie Gras, made in house, fabulous steak cooked to perfection with pepper sauce or with moral mushrooms, fish dish, a few of the desserts. Their wine recommendations where great. It would be a shame to go to Aix and miss eating at this lovely restaurant. The decor is also very inviting and warm.

“More than your money's worth”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Very fresh and inventive cuisine. I own a B&B in a nearby village and most of my guests that I have referred to Le Patio have the same reprieve "the BEST MEAL WE HAVE EATEN IN FRANCE". .
