Take away : noInstalled for 30 years in Aix-en-Provence, the restaurant Jacquou le Croquant presents cuisine of the Southwest in an very militant approach for healthy food and respect for the body.
Proof is that smoking is prohibited in the restaurant since 1985 and the manageress takes pleasure to put in its menu a poster alerting on all chemicals that are present in a single cigarette.
Suffice to say that the quality of products for the home cooking remains the primary concern of this restaurateur originally from Dorgogne. Not surprisingly, the ducks and geese are very present in the menu, available in solo with different sauces or together in the Trio festif, one of the specialties of the house.
Other specialties not to be missed are the Tourtou (wheat pancake stuffed), l’assiette du Patio (using roasted or roasted fish) and of course the cassoulet of Castelnaudary.
Good meat is important for Jacquou, but not everywhere. All dishes are served with mixed vegetables, and you can no problem asking a vegetarian or vegan dish, no one will look at you weird, quite the contrary. Also note the daily special at € 10.90, the garden patio for dining outdoors almost all year, and an inner room designed for disabled guests.
If the restaurant has a so good reputation, even internationaly, it is not without reason, and for those who would pass by chance, the name Jacquou le Croquant (based on the popular TV series - 1969) will suffice to convince them to come together under its banner.http://www.jacquoulecroquant.com
