Quiet, friendly with good food and service at a reasonable price. Due to problems with another reservation ended up at the L'Alcove at last minute. Unusually welcoming considering it was almost 2.00. So glad we ended up there. I'll be back!

So we rocked up just after new years... the locals obviously not out. Limited menu.... as you would expect in France with a good chef. Didn't super impress us..... we know good food when we get it.....but pretty good.....

We were recommended this place by our concierge and we were not disappointed. Admittedly we were the only people there at the time so the service was wonderful. We had the 3 course set menu and a bottle of wine for a total of 110 euro which I think is good value. We were given a small onion and anchovy... More

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.
