Welcome to the Brasserie Léopold, the restaurant of the Saint-Christophe hotel in the centre Aix-en-Provence, right near the old town, the Cours Mirabeau, shops, markets, the train station, museums and theatres.
The Brasserie Léopold is an institution in Aix. It is famous for its friendly atmosphere and its wonderful Art Déco décor, which goes with the background 1930s jazz music.
In this relaxed atmosphere, you can eat your meal in the vast restaurant itself, in the sunlit veranda surrounded by a large glasshouse, or if the weather is fine, out on the patio, to make the most of the warm, lively atmosphere of this part of Aix-en-Provence.
The Brasserie Léopold, which has received the distinction "Maitre Restaurateur" welcomes you in the atmosphere of a large Parisian brasserie. The chef, Franck Legrand, who has worked in famous restaurants and also under Escoffier, reinvents traditional cuisine, adding all his creativity and his passion for fine gastronomy.
The chef offers little innovative dishes, full of interesting flavours, using only French seasonal produce, much of which is local. Everything is home made.
Beef fillets with foie gras Rossini, grilled fish, "grand tradition" steak tartare (raw minced steak), sauteed calf kidneys with juniper berries... At the Brasserie Léopold, you can rediscover authentic dishes revisited with flair.
The Brasserie Léopold also offers a choice of home made sauerkraut: sauerkraut with fish, sauerkraut royale, sauerkraut with knuckle of pork, duck preserve and sauteed foie gras... a wide choice for fans.
The bar is in the heart of the hotel, in a light Art Déco setting. Hotel guests and visitors can take the time to relax in this friendly area that opens onto the patio.
For breakfast, a tea or coffee break, with a tempting cake, or an evening drink, you'll enjoy lounging at the bar or at a table, comfortably installed to listen to a bit of jazz, or out on the patio to drink in the atmosphere of the city.
Bar: open from 6.30 am to 1 am.
