Had dinner there last night. Upon finally getting the bill and giving our credit card waiter asked us to add the tip on bottom of bill. I said we thought it was service comprix and he said no tip is not included. After believing him and leaving good tip our hotel Le Piggonet said they no longer recommend them. Its a French law that 15% is included and they really take advantage when they know you're not French.

No visit to Aix would be complete without stopping by the city's oldest cafe, where Cezanne and Zola convened; but it really IS a tourist trap, like many of the bistros & brasseries on the Cours Mirabeau. The menu is expensive & not very memorable: spaghetti Bolonaise and fish & chips seemed to be the best-sellers. But the sidewalk tables offer a nice spot for people-watching, and a stroll inside (even just to use the toilets) reveals a beautiful restaurant with character and ambience. My recommendation: try it for a quick coffee, then go elsewhere to dine.

Had lunch during the midday rush, after being recommended to the venue in our guide book. Atmosphere seemed good, so convinced us to give it a go. Waiter was a little stressed, but quickly warmed up. We all get stressed, right? In the meantime, the maitre 'd was full of cheer. Both of us had two courses + wine and coffee, and all were good and reasonably priced (based on typical costs in the area). We enjoyed a completely unrushed meal, despite there being several folk having to be turned away. The indoor restaurant is also very well decorated and worth a look.

On a business trip with a colleague from the UK and 2 colleagues based in France and it was my French colleagues who recommended Les Deux Garcons. I have to say I was extremely pleased with their recommendation. The Steak was well cooked (normally it is very, very rare in France) and tender, which went down well with a decent bottle of red wine. The waiter was very attentive and the food was pretty quick in coming to the table. We sat outside and although late in the evening it was still warm enough.The menus are also subtitled in English.....which helped. Cost for 4 people with wine approx 230 euros......which I thought was OK for the standard of food and the setting.

1) Waiter was very arrogant, didn't look at us when we talked to him. Didn't understand english, but didn't really make an effort
2) Waited so long. It was in the middle of the day, so there wasn't that many guests. We ordered two banana splits and one lemon tart. After ordering, we waited for 30 - 45 min...
3) Inside of the place smelled like urine and was dirty. We sat outside, but had to go inside to go to the restroom, which was dirty and disgusting.
4) The food was horrible. Both of the banana splits consisted of banana, cream and MELTED ice cream.
