Restaurant recommendations in Aix en Provence/Avignon

I will be in Aix and also Avignon for 5 days in July. Would love some recommendations for restaurants in and around those towns.

    1. My wife and I have been living in Aix for about 9 months, and we really like La Chimère. Also, la Cave d'Yves has excellent wines by the glass and small plates to accompany them.

      1. I loved my visit to Aix last year! We stayed at a wonderful bed and breakfast - La Torse, which is just a short walk outside of town. My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Les Agapes, a small, charming and very reasonably-priced family-owned restaurant on a little side street. I loved the stuffed mussles and grilled duck with cepes. We also had a good meal at Chez Feraud.

        1. We ate at L'epicerie last night. They have a great terrace. The food was uncomplicated and delicious and we were very impressed with the value.

          1. In Avignon the best place to go is Le Cilantro. They just got their first Michelin star and it hasn't gone to their head yet.

              Le Cilantro is in Arles...starts with an A as well and is close...but not touching Avignon.
              It helps if reports are accurate.

                It has also had a star for quite a few years.....

                  perhaps. but their star is over Arles.

                    I wasn't the one that thought it was in Avignon. It has a star in my guides going back to '08, and as it wasn't a "N" then it must have had one in '07 or '06 as it isn't in the '05 guide.
