The concierge at our hotel booked dinner for us here on our first night in town. From the outside the place is quite unassuming but once go inside through the bar it goes down 2 levels to a great cosy and atmospheric restaurant. After a...More

I was sent there by a local wine shop. Nice electronic music and mild lights create some atmosphere. Staff is lovely and drinks worth trying. Just had a lovely chocolate and pear dessert. Let's try dinner next time.

My wife and I had dinner here on the suggestion of our hotel concierge. It definitely has unique decor but it was a really cool looking place, and we had dinner in what I would call the "pink" or "rose" room. Our waiter was attentive,...More

Multi-tiered restaurant, when you first arrive it looks like an ordinary bar. As you descend, you arrive at a small tapas restaurant. Then further down the door opens and you find yourself in the Blue Room. Walls painted deep blue with gold gilding, painting, small...More

Had dinner with some friends visiting from the US. Food was excellent. Staff was very accommodating and attentive and spoke English very well. Definitely worth a visit.

The restaurant is pretty funky with unusual decor and interesting dishes. The food is well prepared. Most of our dishes were delicious, save one pasta that was just a little heavily creamed and salted (for our taste) and so would rest at quite good. The...More

We had been disappointed so far with our meals in Aix so this evening was a pleasant surprise. We knew even as we tasted the complimentary appetizer 'soup', that this evening was going to be different. We thoroughly enjoyed the Pont L'évêque bites, couteaux, and...More

BONJOUR Pouvez-vous nous faire savoir si vous cuisinez le cochon de lait parfois au sein de votre restaurant? On habite SAINT CHAMAS et cela ne nous dérangera nullement de faire la route si tel est le cas! Cordialement

Bonjour, je suis le propriétaire du restaurant, je vous contact directement car je voulais éclaircir la situation. Vous dites qu'on vous a facturé du Pey Blanc à 35€, en tant que vin du moment. C'est effectivement une erreur, l'avez vous signalé lors de l'encaissement? Pour le café gourmand on aurait dû le faire passer en gourmand au même titre que nous faisons passer en menu un client qui au final prendrait un dessert. Je ne pense que nous prenons nos clients pour des pigeons ni que nous cherchons à arnaqué nos clients, sinon vous vous en seriez rendu compte en 10ans. Je vous remercie toute fois car je vais faire en sorte de transformer notre carte afin qu'elle soit plus clair et qu'elle n'entraine aucun malentendu Cordialement Mickael au plaisir de vous revoir, j'espère.
