Lots of dish to choose from, but good. Centrally located in Aix en Provence. In a busy pedestrian street but not too noisy

Having seen this place on a couple of evenings it really had the attractive appeal in a small square, tables around the fountain and seems busy whenever we wandered by. I was a little nervous given the wide menu options from Moroccan, to Italian and Provencale - which can mean things are a bit hit and miss. Service was friendly,... More

After having read all the bad reviews we were prepared for a bad experience. But in fact is was quite nice. The staff was very friendly, we had one of the nice tables just next to the fountain and the food was decent. We had a pizza and couscous with vegetables. Both meals were not outstanding, but good and the... More

The location and setting of the restaurant is great and in a lively area of the cities narrow streets so we were happy to get a table outside next to the fountain.

Nice little restaurant with a nice outside seating area, but the food was only ok. Unfortunately there are too many other really good restaurants in town to wander back to this location.

We had a night to forget here with rude service and terrible food. We sent two meals back. There are much better places to eat than here. We didn't need to be treated the way we were.

Besides the lovely fountain, we have duck breast, steak, grilled lamb, and pizza. All of our order taste delicious and not expensive, comparing to the meal we have in France some other place. Don't know why so many negative reviews here, but we definitely will go back some day.
