If Tripadvisor posts this, it is my hope that the owner of Le Cilantro will post an explanation of events and welcome customers back to fine dining in Arles. The last review seems to be October 2012, yet Tripadvisor awarded the restaurant a 2013 Certificate of Excellence. Today, while searching for a place for lunch, I found a sign attached... More

Sadly I was not able to eat at Le Cilantro despite it being recommended to me by a French Chef in the US. Why.....I tried to make a reservation via email (2 times) and via their web site form (2 times) and never received a response. When I was in Arles, I stopped into the restaurant to tell them about...

Walked in for late lunch. Excellent blend of French classiques and modern twists. Cool, air conditioned, no smoking. Loved it!

We almost did not go to Le Cilantro based on some of the reviews and the prices but were delighted we did. We decided to try the tasting menu with accompanying wines and did not regret the choice.The food is unapologisingly regional French (you are in France!) but was light and balanced and the wines were fantastic and until then...

We arrived in the 100 degree heat and were welcomed into a cool ( temperature), trendy dining room. The escargot entree was so tender and creative. The lamb shoulder tender and flavorful. a luscious chocolate dessert-- what a wonderful way to start the afternoon

Food was pretty all right, although variety poor. We weren't so lucky with food in southern France, with the exception of Joel Robuchon in Monaco, so we were satisfied with the quality of food served here for the price we paid. Though i have to add that we had a bit of inconsistency with the pork slices served to 3... More

I have left behind my expectations of grandiose from Michelin starred restaurants a while ago. Today, in my humble opinion they are distributed like army brass and venues like Cilantro are the reason why I think so. The menu displayed outside wasn't served in the restaurant that day. What a lure! Enticed with an interesting Mediterranean fusion at the door,... More

Easy to miss on the street, Cilantro is tucked down a little covered alleyway. Simple decor and tables, interesting food, good service, especially the sommelier.

Had one of the best meals of our lives here, on a small terrace watching a superb sunset. Eye-wateringly expensive but justified: this is a very good restaurant with a Michelin star and an excellent choice for a special treat. Imaginative menu, beautifully cooked food (an artichoke puree was sensational) and worth splashing out on a bottle or two from... More

There was nothing wrong with the restaurant. The garden was nice, not great, but not bad. The nibbles with the drinks were 50% good. My starter, les petits farcies, was very good. Both of our main courses, fish and vea.l were very average. The cheese was well presented. The sorbets were fair. All in all nothing miserable, but nothing dazzling.... More
