After facing Monday night closings of our hotel restaurant (chateau de La Pioline), and no room at Mitch and Opera we were directed to La Chimere Cafe. How lucky! This former Cabernet with red and black accents served up the fine cuisine we had been awaiting from Aix. For starters, try the Razor Clams or Foie Gras frites. The Scallops with root veggies was dreamy. Merengue raspberry dessert yummy. Service was the best we've had in France. This place has been here twenty years and may get lost in coverage. It will be top of my list upon a return.

Enjoyed the octopus and most specially the duck breast which came with truffled mashed potato, caramelized apples, an eggplant side with tomato and Parmesan, and a side salad. Excellent service as well.

Exclusive French restaurant, we visited it twice for dinner during our stay.
The food and the service were perfect, and there was a bar with very good gin cocktails.
I strongly recommend it.

The concierge at our hotel booked dinner for us here on our first night in town. From the outside the place is quite unassuming but once go inside through the bar it goes down 2 levels to a great cosy and atmospheric restaurant. After a few language barriers we ordered food that was superb. I started with the eggplant confit which was very tasty and flavoursome and quite a reasonable size serve. My wife has the foie gras which extremely silky. I had the veal dish for a main and it was extremely good. My wife had a fish dish which was also very good. A tiramisu and a baba for dessert topped off a great meal which was accompanied by a very nice bottle of local red. The set price of around 35 euro per head was very good value and we had great service from our waiter Adrian
