“Overpriced and average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

I got the 17 euro lunch menu, with a 24 bottle of wine. My friends and I were not at all impressed, the food was much too expensive and was subpar, especially for French food. The salad was basic, the main dish dull, and the dessert simply poorly made. As someone living in Aix, there are better restaurants here for better prices.

“A bit sparse and unvaried”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Despite the very friendly service, I'm afraid to say that this restaurant's food was mediocre. All four of us went for the 17 euro menu and each got something different which we shared. The entrées were pretty good (particularly the supions, basically calamari), but the mains left something to be desired. All had the same accompaniments (runner beans, one cherry tomato and half a spoon of mashed potato) but with different meats: I had the sardines which were not cooked enough for the bones to be unnoticeable (thus making it quite painful to eat!) The desserts were the best parts particularly the triple chocolate cake and the creme de calissons (if you have a very sweet tooth). For the price it'd probably be worth going elsewhere like le tire bouchon (full menu for 20 euros, excellent food) just a little further towards town.

“Winter Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Delicous preparatons. The squid salad was excellent and the fish dish was fresh and tasty, very well prepared. The service was friendly and helpful in getting good advice on the menu items. Visited this for a lunch on a cold day and had a wonderful time in this charming restaurant.

“Cosy place, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

We went there for dinner and loved the place. It a cosy one, not posh but feels real and homy. There is only one waiter so don't go there in a rush, just enjoy your time and the food. There is a fixed menu for 15€, three or four dishes to choose. For us the amount of food was perfect for dinner, but could be not enough for people used to big dinners. Check the timetable before going because they have reduced opening times.

Amazing how just one chef and one waiter can manage to provide such great food at such good value (€15 for 3 courses even during the evening)
