We ate here twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. The service was always great, helpful with the menu, and obviously enjoying serving people. This young couple made both visits enjoyable. They're located a bit off Ave du Republic, but have a chalkboard on the walking street. Make it a place to go.

The food here is just fantastic! A must try in Arles. We hade a tuna appetizer, cod and risotto with chicken as main. Very good and excellent presentation. I have to say the desserts could have been better, but they were still very good. Reservation needed.

I had a chance to visit this restaurant and was very happy that I checked the restaurant reviews before I came to Arles. The restaurant was simply great! I had a lunch course and from the starter to the dessert, everything was beautifully presented and delicious. I really enjoyed their cooking. I even took a picture of the dessert! If... More

This restaurant is highly underrated! The food is incredibly creative with intersting and delicious combinations of flavour in every dish! I started with a mackerel glazed with balsamic which was one of the best starters I have ever eaten, followed by a beautifully cooked steak of tuna with a vast combination of vegetables and purées! For dessert, me and my... More

I ate here with my husband while on honeymoon. The owner was really friendly and the atmosphere was lovely and romantic. I had the prawns to start and the tuna as a main. Highly recommend both. The tuna was particularly fabulous. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

The restaurant is rather simple but with a nice "terasse" on a quiet street. The food is very " nouvelle cuisine", with fresh and tasty products And, over all, the people there are just charming!

We really enjoyed the 39 Euro lunch menu at L'autruche. It was the best lunch we have ever had in Arles in our 4 visits. There are a lot of tourist places around so if you want serious food in Arles I suggest you try this one. They have a serious chef and we enjoyed every bite. Their "house "... More

Traveling to France (Arles) from Singapore, having the chance to dine at this restaurant is simply great! For Starter I had the half cooked tuna. And for the main... Duck. Superb presentation that is so nice you might want to lock it up for viewing but absolutely tasty that you had to eat it!

Such a surprise. We walked off the tourist traps into the alley way and "voila" we hit upon this place for lunch. The steak with foie gras was amazing. We even came back the next night for dinner. Its not silver service but the staff are just lovely and speak perfect English. I will definitely go back when next passing... More
