We stumbled on this place by chance and were very glad we did; utterly charming staff, great food, lovely setting and refreshingly unpretentious.

Despite arriving without a reservation, they went out of their way to find us a table. The food menu, albeit limited in vegetarian options, is very of the region and executed fantastically. The owners we're extremely welcoming despite it being a very busy night and still found the time to discuss the wines. If you're looking for a cosy restaurant with great food and wine that won't rush you out the door, then this is it! This has easily become one of my favourite spots in Aix.

We phoned to book a table at 8.45pm but were told one cannot book a table after 8pm. We were told they would call us when someone had left and a table became available. No time indication given. We went out and had a few drinks. Waiting for a call... Hungry... Waiting.... And waiting... Bizarre set up. Attitude on phone was rude, laissez faire and dismissive. Walked past at 8.15 and they were empty. Plats at 18 euros each looked expensive given the type of place, rustic wood, sterotype wine bar, zero imagination, dark, early 90s. Surely we had all that 20 years ago?Yaaaawn. Went to restaurant La Familia instead where we had a warm welcome, fantastic food, lovely atmosphere. Warm.

Lovely little menu, great wine. Good food - very French and not for veggies! Small, intimate, and pleasing. On the expensive side though and service can be slow but we didn't mind as the owners and the place so charming.
