Packed on a Tuesday night, buzzing with good vibes and a great menu. What's the deal with this "funny place" as its name suggests? The answer is simple: a boho look and feel and a menu which is delicious. From the moment you enter the...More

Lovely restaurant tucked away in a small, somewhat ugly street. One of the very few places in Aix to offer a consistent meat-free option, the "assiette végétarienne." Great deco and super friendly owners!

I had the gigot d'Agneau and it, along with several small tastes of carrot soufflé, goat cheese, muhamara, and eggplant melange was delicious. Chocolate for dessert, of course.The staff were terrific and solicitous of me, a single diner

One of the best restaurants in Aix! Go for the lamb and cafe gourmand! Everything is home-made and local. Restaurant with nice decorations and cheerful staff.

We were taken to this busy restaurant by a local who is a regular. We enjoyed an excellent lamb main dish, presented nicely with potatoes and vegetables. Service was efficient and engaging. It may take some finding (down a small alley), but is well worth...More

Located in an alley, the exterior is completely unappealing, they should fix that. Inside is a funky atmosphere with tables throughout, couches, cushions, often live music. Good food, interesting beverage menu with fun choices.

You can't go wrong with this vibrant, relaxed restaurant tucked into an alley in Aix. The food is delicious--familiar yet different than the Mediteranean food you may have had before. The ingredients are fresh, the combinations, flavors, unique and tasty. Vegetarian friends happy as well....More

This restaurant has just opened and is located in a small alley called "rue Annonerie Vieille" on the right of the rue Bedarrides in the historic centre of Aix-en-Provence. The concept combines a restaurant for lunch, a board of tapas in the evening as well as regular acoustic concerts, literary debates and readings, art exhibitions and a small deco boutique. The Drole d'Endroit also has free wifi and welcomes people throughout the day for a coffee, a cup of tea (the tea list is quite extensive!), a piece of cake or a scone. The cuisine is Mediterranean and focuses on using mostly organic and locally-sourced ingredients. Once a week, the restaurant will also sell some organic vegetable hampers produced by a local farmer.
