We visited for lunch today and the title of this review says it all! We simply could not find one single fault. We chose the set menu for 20,90 and each chose differently so in all we tasted 6 dishes. Each dish was delicious with...More

This is a very small restaurant with good service and good food. Price was reasonable. Staff was friendly. Tried the pastis first and then had local wine. All very delicious and affordable.

I cannot praise this place enough. Fantastic service from attentive and informed staff with an interesting menu and excellent level of English spoken (ma femme, qui ne parle pas français l'a beaucoup apprécié). When I ordered the wine "au pif" I was gently directed to...More

We are staying in Montpellier for two weeks and this was hands down better than any of the highly regarded establishments there. One sits in the main dining square in Aix and we got a 48 euro tasting menu which was sublime. Monkfish with celery...More

This is an excellent restaurant - no question. The duck was overlooked but everything was so delicious that it doesn't matter much. The chef is a true professional. Great local produce cooked simply. Beats a burrito, that's for sure!

This place is a hidden gem. The owner is the chef and he only uses fresh produce and he is extremly talented. We just spent 8 nights in Aix and after eating at a couple of restaurants none of them came close to this place. They friendly and the food is just amazing. This restaurant should be on trip advisor without a doubt. His food melts in your mouth and the flavors are out of this world.The owners are Ludovic & Laura Aillaud
