A Chef's career

Discover our Chef Julien Le Goff.






Michelin-star restaurant Aix-en-Provence
A star in the country

The Michelin star was awarded in February 2014, barely a few months after opening.

In the kitchens, Julien Le Goff relies on his instincts. Here, there are no ready-made recipes, the Chef draws inspiration from the tastes and colours which the region offers every day.

This gives rise to a spontaneous menu dictated by the seasons and his inspiration.

Although the Chef knows how to be open and attentive when creating his dishes, precision is the key when it comes to the quality of the produce and the cooking methods!

It is this balance between creative freedom and high technical standards that makes Julien's cuisine so surprising.


New : Le Grill Chic des Lodges


Michelin-starred chef Julien Le Goff's summer cuisine

New season, new ideas, this year the Saint-Estève brigade, 1 star in the Michelin guide, sets up its outdoor summer kitchen at lunchtime and presents you its Grill Chic

Depending on the arrivals of the day, on the slate, grilled fish and lobster, pieces of varied meat, garnishes according to the market of the day (tians, mashed potatoes with truffle ...) but also fresh salads, bowls, smoked salmon, caviar and the sublime desserts of pastry chef Rudy Morel

Local products, in short circuit, and exceptional products, wonderfully prepared, to taste with simplicity, under the plane trees of our shaded terrace or facing Sainte-Victoire

In the dining room!

The Chef's choice of this place is obvious and you will soon understand why.

The tables around the exterior appear to hang over garden. The horizon laid out before you gives the impression of a dinner at one with nature.

The place's decoration reflects the image of the hotel, elegant and modern. Stylish furniture, comfortable armchairs, soft lighting, beautiful crockery, bouquets of flowers... Every detail has been studied with great care to ensure that you enjoy a prestigious gourmet evening.

The Chef's enthusiasm is contagious and he infects the team with all the energy needed to run the establishment. In the dining room, the entire team is extremely involved and take part in a superbly well choreographed ballet. Each one knows the role he has to play to ensure that your meal is an exceptional moment.

Working in the dining room at the Saint Estève means more than just serving dishes but rather participating in the collective effort required for their success.
