It's a place to go. Not much to look at; not much good to eat (all the cafes and bistros here are dives).
My husband and I along with two friends had three meals here over the course of two weeks in October...eating outside in the square that is full of tables and umbrellas. This is where the locals hang out. Our first meal we had here was poor and over-priced (our poor choice) but the other two were quite good as well... More
The square is really rather lovely, great to sit and watch life go by on a sunny day or a warm evening but be aware...the cafes surrounding are most definitely overpriced and not at all nice! We settled for the quirky looking one as it had what looked an amazing lemon meringue pie in the display, at 6.50 a slice... More
Really enjoyed sitting in the square, right in the heart of Arles. Excellent for people watching during the day and evenings. I sat with a book and a beer and enjoyed a quiet afternoon without being pestered by anyone, though it has to be said that you do pay a premium price for drinking in the cafe painted by Vincent...

this is where the Van Gogh painting comes to life. The square is surrounded by restaurants and hotels. Statute of Mistral in square. Outdoor dining. we dined in this area on three occasions. nice selection of different foods. Paella was cooking in gigantic pans during Sunday afternoon visit.
This square is worth no more than a quick look, and be sure to avoid its many bistros. They are generally over-priced hustles. If you are pressed for time, this is a place to put low on your list.
Delightful square with some super buildings ideal for people watching and enjoying a glass of Rosé. Suffers from crocodiles of Van Gogh spotters but that's life!
Named for the forum that stood here.It was a political and religious center in Roman Arles. The square is crammed with cafes and watering holes. Great people watching area,lively and noisy at times. Spot the bright yellow cafe featured in Vincent van Gogh's famous works.
The whole square is filled with restaurants. A good place to eat or just sit and have a drink. Features a Cafe famously painted by Van Gogh though I think his cutting-in on the window panes could have been better [!]. Food in square very 'touristy' but had a decent enough meal one evening...there are better restaurants to be found... More
