A japanese style restaurant in Aix

A japanese style restaurant in Aix

This restaurant is not in Paris but in Aix en Provence. It's a quite new one named "Le Koï", 4 rue Paul-Doumer, 2 steps from the Cour Mirabeau. 

It's a very nice place, with a very nice decoration: in the entrance, which is open on the street, there is a complete wall and floor with a fresco with Koï carp, like a huge tatoo, so nice. Inside it's more "zen" with wooden furnitures and there is a nice terrace in the back, so quiet.

The menu is fusion food Japan-Fance, very good indeed. I tried the tempura ebi (gambas), with homemade udon, and for desert a yuzu tart with sesame biscuit.

The plates are nice too, just with with the Koï, and you can buy them if you want to (on the web-site).

A nice place to go if you're in town.
