During our one night stay in the city of Arles, we were recommended this restaurant your hotel and have been so happy of the place. The food is really, really delicious, exquisite, well cokked, fresh ingredients, nothing to do with the usual tousistic places. Here it is french gastronomy in all its art. We have enjoyed a real pleasant experience,... More

One of the best meals we had in France- I'd say even better than a Michelin starred restaurant we went to. And very nice, English-speaking waiter, which is not a must but is helpful since we spoke limited French. The desserts are out of this world. This is definitely the most beautiful food I've ever eaten- everything is artfully plated... More

Chef Antoine is a true professional. This small and intimate restaurant is simply the best in Arles. Forget the Michelin starred joint around the corner. Ask for outside seating and be prepared for a spectacular meal, at a very reasonable price. At our last visit, we had the daily special of a seared tuna appetizer, followed by a pork tenderloin...

After a number of very average meals, it was a relief to find L'Autruche. It's tucked away in a side street and isn't that impressive on first viewing. This was our best meal in Arles, as it turned out, and we'd be delighted to return. There's a short menu of entrees, mains and deserts. All the ones we tried were... More

We enjoyed our meal at L'autruche. This tiny, family run restaurant has very attentive service and excellent food. It is more expensive than nearby restaurants but worth the extra expense for a special night out. The menu changes daily and the chef offers three or four choices in terms of fish, meat, etc. depending on what fresh foods are available.... More

We found this restaurant in the Michelin and were not disappointed. The set menu at 39 euros was outstanding, pairing unusual tastse with great finesse and imagination. We were so impressed we asked to personally thank the chef afterwards. the owner is charming too. highly recommended

The strength and weakness of tripadvisor is that most reviews are a snapshot of a business. This is a tale of two restaurants. On our first visit we had a wonderful meal superbly served by the single waiter/owner. He described the food accurately, served it promptly and was perfectly attentive to all his customers, never giving the impression of being... More
