You'll find better reviewed places further away from Cours Mirabeau, but if you want to stay central and people-watch, or if you just want to sit down, Cafe du ROI Rene is a good bet. We had a pizza and a tagliatelle dish for an early lunch. I really enjoyed the pizza (chilli oil provided without having to ask for it). Service was friendly and helpful.

Friendly welcomed and seated. “Also vegetarian ?” ... “ yes sir!” So all set with High expectations also because of the menu. Gnocchi, risotto, buffalo mozzarella .. wow ... it was a too (!) long time after seating before following up for drinks and food. (30 min). Gnocchi, salads, pasta served where great. Vegetarian risotto had no (NO) taste at all, waterisch ... sent it back ... same result ... vegetarian food does not mean ‘tasteless ‘ ... Service of staff is poor ... forgotten wine, no follow up on drinks (1 beer, could have been more ... )

It looks nice, outside ... performance is low.

We didn’t dare to order further food.

We enjoyed our meal a lot!
The service is not the quickest but it’s worth the waiting.
Aix-en-Provance is a nice village for a romantic dinner.

Located on one end of Cours Mirabeau, just behind the statue of Roi Rene, this popular cafe offers pizzas, salads and meat dishes at reasonable prices. Service was excellent ( especially the young lady with long blond hair was extremely good) but our pizzas were just average. Maybe other dishes are better.

We had a lovely relaxing meal at this Cafe. I had a veggie pizza without cheese, (not easy to find in France) and my husband had spaghetti and meat sauce. We both enjoyed our meals, and it was reasonably priced.
