We had a huge baked Camembert with delicately flavoured potatoes and a superbly cooked steak in a Corsican sauce?
Great food, very good service and super ambience. Book; it was full on a Thursday.

Went to dinner at this Corsican restaurant with friends who had been there before and recommended the place. Simply put, the food and the service were atrocious... We were all very disappointed. There was nothing very Corsican about the menu, the chips were greasy, the meat was below standard and the vegetables looked like they had been picked and served directly without being washed. Stay away!

The place itself is nice, small, young, dark, with personality. Attendance was good as well, attentive, fast service (wich we dont find always in france/europe), and the food was quite savory, good presentation and good taste.

We chose Le Contrepoint because of several positive feedbacks gained through TripAdvisor. Well, they were right! Lovely place, cheerful and friendly owners, actually one of the very few English-speaking people in France (they spoke perfect Italian too!) and delicious dishes. Quality/price ratio among the highest, warmly recommended if you dazzle into Aix :)

This Corsican with Provencal influences restaurant is all about its boss, a Corsican and French+Italian(+something else where necessary) speaking buddy whose informal but meticulous management style and presence permeate the air one breathes.
Menu is a huge blackboard moved from table to table, which includes various vegetables, meats and fishes with maximum 4 ingredients by each main course, testifying the quality of ingredients and how much the property trusts his offer.
We followed every advice by our host, and we did well: Corsican red wine La Punta (we bought also a spare bottle at the end of the dinner to bring in Italy..), Corsican cold cuts, flavored sliced counter fillet and spare lamb ribs with a wine sauce (my wife defined "divine").
A big attention to allergens (a specific need of ours) made this place to deserve every dime we spent.
