We elected to celebrate Thanksgiving hear and it did not disappoint. The artichoke appetizer was lovely, but I wish I had chosen the cauliflower soup that my daughter had. The white fish main course was great as was the beef bourguignon. Delicious! We were the only ones there for most of our meal - it was a rainy Thursday in... More

Went for lunch with my wife and friends. I had the fish and my wife had the beef bourgeois. Both were excellent. Sat outside, and there were the occasional smells that wafted by...but that's the only negative, inside is nice.

We had a superb meal at L'alcove on our recent trip to Aix. Although we had not reserved we managed to get a table for two outside in the lovely, quiet cobbled street. I'm a vegetarian which is always a bit tricky in France, but we asked the waiter if there was anything I could have and he went to... More

I choose this place based on some of the reviews here on Tripadvisor. While I can't say that the food was bad, it was not up to the standard of any of the other restaurants I have waten at in Aix. It was better than a lot of what I have had in North America though. I started my meal... More

Great lunch. Only a few options but perfect. Duck, cod or beef. Service is excellent. Our waiter worked in Australia so our lack of French was not a problem. Small with excellent food at a reasonable price 15 EUR for lunch.

The restaurant is located in a narrow alley which makes the outside seating quite surreal. If you are seated outside you could see a beautiful church at the end of the street. The food quality, taste and presentation were outstanding. The service made us feel really welcome. The waiter spoke English and was extremely helpful and friendly. We were party... More

We visited here after touring the markets in Aix. The restaurant is in a side street near the market square. The French waiter and chef (co-owners I think) used to work at high end restaurants in the UK, the Chef at Heston Blumental's Fat Duck. The service was friendly, relaxed, personal and informative. The food was fabulously good, and great... More

I went there last night with my husband and a friend. We had a Heineken (this is the only mistake, not having a decent beer to offer) Then we continued with Rosé that was pretty good (Chateau Virant) For entrée I had "Gambas avec ravioli et roquette", I ate it slowly only to be able to delay pleasure, it was...

We went for dinner here last night before going to the Aix Opera Festival and we enjoyed it enormously. We liked sitting on their street terrace and the charming owner was very helpful and friendly. It has a small but interesting menu and we thought that the food was very well prepared and presented. A Luberon wine was proposed to... More
