The food was wonderful and the service and atmosphere was, by far, the most welcoming, warm, and helpful of any restaurant we visited while in France. I will say, make reservations, the restaurant may have 10 tables and several people were turned away while we were there. Just call them and struggle through the language barrier ...or have the front desk at your hotel call for you, which we may or may not have done, it’s worth it.

We were made to feel welcome and were delighted to have an English speaking server. This restaurant is tiny but has a big heart to make you feel at home. The menu had several choices and everything we had was delicious. The dish with duck and foie gras was wonderful. Great wine pairings. Reservations are a must. Great find.

This is one of the wonders of Aix-en-Provence.

I methodically have been searching for the finest food and dining experience in Aix for a week now, and finally sat down last night after countless recommendations I have received from reputable establishments (cooks, restaurant owners etc).

This place is like Le Baratin (highest praise I can think of as an unapologetic foodie), except with warmer service. The staff is simply wonderful.

The wine selection is absolutely stunning, and the food is also DELICIOUS. It’s simple, yet inventive, and the execution / technique is excellent. “Simple” food, after all, is challenging to get right.

I practically begged the host for another reservation, and we’re going back tonight to my delight!

Home cooked, fresh from the market, been there several times, it is always a win. Must be booked because very tiny space, but you won't regret. So delicious.

Our local host highly recommended LVC; actually it was the highest recommendation on her list of restaurants in Aix. LVC is very small (7 tables, three of them outside), but the serving team of Frederic and his partner was attentive, informative and humourous.
I highly recommend the octopus appetizer, its sauce was sublime.
The menu is somewhat limited, but there is enough variety for many tastes.
The pricing is typical of this part of town 8~10 Euros for starters and 16~24 for entrées, so with such high quality food and service, I can say that it is fair and reasonable.
Check their website for the menu/pricing and a background into some of their food suppliers.
