Aix-en-Provence, St. Tropez, Bouillabaisse, & wineries
I will be going to the South of France in April, and I am specifically seeking recommendations for great restaurants in Aix-En-Provence, St. Tropez (& perhaps Cannes), & especially the best bouillabaisse in the area. I would also not mind some winery recommendations with great wine that is anywhere in between Aix and St. Tropez.
I live in the Vaucluse and just made several trips to Aix looking for good lunch places to take friends and clients.
Clearly the best of the places I tried is Millefeuille:
8, Rue Rifle Rafle, 13100, France
+33 (0)4 42 96 55 17
Closed Sunday and Monday
Excellent place that I discovered through Fooding. Went with a sommeliere and owner of a Michelin starred resto. We both loved it, thought the service was exceptional, as well as the food. The two young but experienced owners are really concerned about their customers enjoying themselves. On a small street in old Aix. Wine list has wines from all over France; the owner/waiter opened bottles for us just so we could have a glass of something we really wanted.
19 rue Constantin, 13100, Aix (North of Place Trois Ormeaux)
+33 (0)4 42 96 47 29
Excellent food, very good service. Will definitely go back.

I thought I would have a great experience. Unfortunately this was not the case. Neither food nor service were great, nor even very good. Overpriced; more expensive that the two above, and even at a lower price I would not return.
