“Fantastic food but no personality”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

Difficult to find in what passes for suburbia in Aix, but worth locating for the inventive and tasty menu with a view of the kitchen.But don't expect any personality . The food was served efficiently but clinically as if by robots !

“Malheureusement, It's Mediocre"”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

Saw this place recommended in a few guidebooks (including a Michelin guide a few years old and a current "Time Out Provence"), but we were disappointed in cuisine which paid more attention to presentation and unusual combinations than to flavor and taste. All interesting-sounding dishes on the 35 euro menu were flat and so-so. The place was quite empty on a Friday night, so that may mean the locals, at least, know the score.
We should have checked with TripAdvisor, where both French and English reviews told the story.......

“Haute Cuisine”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

This restaurant is top notch. Food is painstakingly perfect as is the service. Try the baby squid and the salmon gravlax for pure perfection.

“Out of the way but very enjoyable”
Reviewed August 10, 2011

This is not your typical tourist restaurant as it is a bit out of the way and you need to know it is there.
We had a great time and food was good, served in an open patio under the trees. Servers seem to know the regulars and spend time chatting with them. I would go back with friends. Set menu is at 35 Euros.

“Great Food & Value”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

My partner and I were looking for an interesting place in Aix to have dinner and read a review of this place in the Guide Routard. It didn't disappoint. Its a bit difficult to find in that its not located in the touristy centre, but its worth the effort. We each had 3-course prix fixe menus with different choices and liked everything we were served. The presentation was great and everything perfectly cooked. Wait staff were also very friendly and the room was modern and crisp. Overall a very pleasant meal.
