Marasino – New Italian in Town

By aixcentric It’s hard judging a restaurant from the outside. Some look tiny and are tiny….others are deceptive. And the new ‘Marasino’ is one such. The small terrace, next to the Hotel St Christophe near the Rotonde, gives no clue as to the large number of seats inside. It’s a …

Snacking in Aix

By aixcentric When we first got our flat here, over 12 years ago, it wasn’t easy to find a lunch-time snack. It was still very much formal 3 course dining. But now there is a more casual approach to le dejeuner, especially among the young, and there are new cafés …

Why Everyone Should Eat at a Michelin-Starred Restaurant

While the bill induced heartburn in my husband and I, what we will always remember about our Michelin-starred restaurant visit is the amazing food and experience we had. La Table de Patrick Raingeard wined us, dined us, and left us feeling like the elite wealthy, though we certainly are not. …

Freezing Cold Ice Bar Comes to Aix

By aixcentric I have read about ice-bars but never had the experience of pulling on a fleece cape and entering a -10C ice-cave complete with stalactites and ice chandeliers to enjoy a shot of freezing vodka out of an ice-glass. If this appeals, you have the chance to do this …

Great restaurant in Aix

By David Taylor Eating out in big cities is always difficult as there is so much choice and one wants to avoid the tourist traps. We have eaten at Cote Cours on the Cours Mirabeau three times and enjoyed all occasions although lunches were our favourite. On Saturday we ate …

Le Jardin Restaurant in Mallemort

My previous “encounters” with Mallemort had fleeting, passing through either in a car or on a bike. Mallemort has the benefit and possibly the curse of having the D23 intersect the town. This is the route that crosses the Durance and joins the Vaucluse to the Bouches du Rhône. It …

Where are we going to eat in Forcalquier on a Sunday

Hilda Stearn visited Forcalquier in Haute Provence in the autumn. You can read about the lovely place she stayed and the local spa here. In today’s 24/7 society it is easy to forget that in some parts of France this development has yet to take hold. Arriving late in the …

Just the Best Ice-Cream in Provence

By aixcentric This Wednesday, April 15th, L’Art Glacier reopens after its winter break. This is a restaurant tucked away on a wooded hillside near Ansouis and is well-worth seeking out. It has a fabulous terrace which overlooks the Luberon and its ice-creams and sorbets must be the best ever! It’s …
