We've been here twice two years ago and this year again. Quality of the food and service still leaves nothing to be desired. Very good, elegant yet simple cuisine. What else do you want?

Paid another visit à Le 16 and again came away very pleased. If we are in Arles with no meal plans and feeling hungry, this is the first place we consider. Quaintly situated at a T-intersection just off the Place de Forum, this family-run restaurant is always filled with faithfuls and those making their first visit. If you are enjoying... More

Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere at Le 16. Dined at the restaurant when we were there in 2012 and had to return in 2014 as the dining experience was so excellent. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Le 16 is a very cozy and pleasant restaurant to enjoy regional provincial food in Arles. I had aiguillettes canard (duck) served with a mixed vegetables and my wife had bull stew. Both meals were delicious, nicely presented and paired well with a good southern Rhone red wine. The staff was friendly, the service was very good and the price... More

We followed the guidebook recommendations and dined at Le 16 instead one of the restaurants facing the Place du Forum in Arles and we were rewarded with an excellent lunch. The menu du jour consisted on tomato tartar with oil and vinegar, roasted duck leg au jus and creme brulee for dessert. The duck was outstanding as was the gazpacho... More

The atmosphere inside Le 16 was warm and inviting. I had the local Bull Stew and a glass of local wine, both were very good.

Le 16 is a cozy warm restaurant with a great French feel. The staff was very helpful in making dinner suggestions and I'd highly recommend the gazpacho. Nice local wine selection. Reasonable prices. A great little find, and recommended by Rick Steve's.

Again in Arles for an appointment that left just enough time to squeeze in lunch. Le 16 had two other couples at midi, but after another 30 minutes they were full. The plat du jour was canard with new potatoes and lightly cooked vegetables. The entire meal, and our hefty glasses of red wine followed by a cafe gourmand, was... More

This is a family run little place that puts out good wholesome local dishes for the lunch. They have friendly, polite servers, and on our frequent visits meals have always been served in good time. They can seat maybe 20 inside, and in the good weather they have more space outside under a shady trellis. Like a bistro, their menu... More

The menu is quiet small and the chef cooks up specialities of the day. I had tiny little clams that were very difficult to eat and a beef stew that personally I did not like nor the man sitting beside me. The desserts were good. The ambience is also very nice. My husband liked his food but I had a... More
