aix place ramusThe place Ramus is one of those adorable hidden squares of the Old Town of Aix. It's tucked down an alleyway easy to miss, though it's just steps from the bustle of the Cours Mirabeau.

aix les vieilles canailles facadeLes Vieilles Canailles made its reputation just after opening when its chef was named in 2016 by Gault & Millau as a Young Talent, an award given to only a few chefs a year.

aix le bistrot interiorWith its line-up of traditional French and provençal cuisine at unbeatable prices, the cosy little Le Bistrot is another great dining bargain in the Old Town of Aix en Provence.

Vintrepide restaurant in Aix en ProvenceOne of the hottest restaurants in Aix is Vintrépide, a tiny two-man operation right on the north-east edge of the Old Town where you'll find some of the best cuisine in the city.

L'Alcove restaurant Aix en ProvenceSome of the best dining bargains in Aix are to be found behind modest, even scruffy facades in the dark, narrow, winding back-streets of the Old Town and L'Alcôve is a prime example.

Thierry Coulmeau of Le Poivre d'Ane, Aix en ProvenceDozens of restaurants of every type and quality line the Forum des Cardeurs, a large open square on the edge of the Old Town. Le Poivre d'Âne looks much like its neighbours. But this is not another fly-by-night tourist trap.

Le Comte d'Aix restaurant, Aix en ProvThis unassuming neighbourhood restaurant in the Old Town of Aix en Provence is easy to miss, but Le Comté d'Aix offers fantastic value in a city where dining out can be ruinous.
