Great food and service

We found this place in the maze of the old town. The lighting is very bright and the decor, modern minimalist. The focus is on the food, which was very good. The staff really distinguished themselves by their response to a near allergy incident. I was exhausted, starving, incoherent and hadn't... read more

This is a small restaurant with a limited menu. However what they do they do really well. Food and service excellent with good wine list.

Delightful lady possibly the owner looked after us so well. The service was excellent, the food limited in choice but delicious and the ambiance was modern yet intimate. We would recommend this gem again. The wine was a little expensive but overall a good evening.

A bit out of the way but worth finding. The menu is limited fitting the small space. However the food is brilliant. The service is family warm. The owner is delightful and attentive. The room is warm and welcoming. We'll be back soon.

Truly wonderful food in this small restaurant run by a husband and wife team. A small menu but perfectly chosen ingredients with a myriad of taste bud treats!. our host graciously explained everything in detail on the menu and the service was exemplary. Michelin style dishes beautifully presented so don't come here if you want massive platefuls of nosh. Highly... More

Only 2 options for each course on the menu but no need for any more as everything we were served was delicious. €32 (I think) for 3 courses. We weren't stuffed but had eaten plenty. Not options for a carafe of wine and the cheapest bottle of rosé which we had was €32 so not cheap but it was very... More

Fist: I reserved the table but lost the address. I had the phone number, called them and they sent a waiter round to meet us and take to our table. Now that is amazing.The staff and even the customers found our arrival a great event and we were treated not as complete idiots but as valued and welcome clients; always... More

Ok. I am not going to be politically correct here. Leave the fanny pack and cargo shorts behind. If you are in the most upcoming art scene town in the south of France, Arles, you must come to L'Autruche. The husband and wife team run the best restaurant in Arles. The emphasis is on fresh seasonal food. Friendly and warm.... More

The meal was excellent, the vegetables were cooked but still somehow fresh and flavorful. The dessert was exceptional. We arrived right before the opening time and the wait staff was so friendly. They politely asked us just to wait 15 minutes while they got everything ready. We were seated and the service and the meal were great. The ambiance is... More
