Nice "different" informal evening with colleagues from the office. The high point was the patron's description of the different wines he was offering (he proposed five), in english, inclusive of price (quite some range), which made us feel we cold really select what we wanted without being talked in getting more expensive wines than we were willing to take.

Let me start by saying that I was warned before going that the patron could be quite temperamental. That being said, I was quite surprised that he was so pleasant and welcoming. The food was excellent and wonderful wine pairings were recommended. Quite a nice dining experience.

The food was ok, tasty, even if nothing special. We appreciated the wine, though its quality was not as high as its price. We were served by the competent and kind waiters.

As a tourist exploring Provence, I'd say that a visit to La Cave d'Yves in Aix-en-Provence would be close to mandatory. Offering genuine french food in authentic environment, with exceptional service and a wide selection of hand-picked, top of the market french wines. The owner, Yves, takes his time with every costumer, explaining different wines and what-goes-to-what depending on what... More

Condescending, pushy, old fashioned prat running this place. The reason people are afraid of wine and consider it snobby is because of people like this. The antithesis of modern wine culture. Staid old man with an attitude. We left before eating, as the boorish bore set upon us.

Thank Matthannah

The owner (Yves) had a wine shop across the street until this spring when he opened up in the new space. Now it's a wine bar and wine shop.
