After walking through the many alleyways of shops, we came upon La Mado and the whole outdoor setting was so nice, we just had to stop for a meal.
The burger I had was disappointing and so was my wife's seafood spaghetti. The burger patty seemed like it was normal fare out from the freezer, while the flavor of the spaghetti was a tad bit too strong for my wife's liking.
That said, service was always swift despite them being busy, and the very good location made for a attractive resting point before continuing on with our shopping spree!

La Mado is an institution in Aix... do not underestimate this restaurant. We always pay a visit we are back in town. The unique location, classy people, great menus, fresh produces, and professional service, ... all are synonyms of subtle good taste and of a certain French upper class discrete gathering, mixing bourgeoisie, working class and nouveau riches. Better than any restaurant on the Cour Mirabeau for a true French experience. Not to be missed.

Although it's profitably located at Place des Prêcheurs the food and service are not so good! My wife had ordered their Magret de Canard. So the duck was like rubber made - you couldn't chew it up. We asked to replace the dish. The waitress couldn't accept our claim so I had to go to administrator (!!) - not HE came to me to check what's the problem! Well, it was our last evening in Provence and it was spoiled with that stupid duck! I wish we went to another place...

Excellent from start to finish! The service and food were impeccable. Our server, Tiffany, had 7-9 tables at any given moment and she provided top not service to every one of them without a hitch. The food was wonderful. Pre-fixe 'Menu du Soir' started with a Marine Salad, (greens, shrimp, abundant amount of shelled mussels, and salmon gravlax. We had different main courses, rack of lamb and crusted white fish, both delicious, and for dessert, apple tarting and tiramisu. Everything was AWESOME.

Delicious and plentiful entrees. Prawns are more like lobster tails and duck on a skewer is excellent. House wine is superb. Value for the money is best found in Aix. Located right at the market square. Manager transfered from The Cove Restaurant in La Jolla, Ca.
