L'autruche only has one fixed menu at lunch, but it was great. The menu the day we were there was gizzard salad (don't cringe, it was great), duck and a lemon tart. Wonderful setting in the old city of Arles.

Staying in St. Rémy, we knew were going to spend the day in Arles so we called ahead and reserved a table for lunch. We are so glad we did. L'autruche turned out to be a charming, simply laid out restaurant with a very friendly female staff. Lunch was a set menu which made ordering quite simple. The meal started... More

Best meal so far in France. Down a narrow street away from the the main tourist drag. We went for lunch and there was a set menu, but no problem there all was beautifully presented and we had some exciting new tastes and angles on familiar dishes. The first course took pumpkin soup to a whole new level, that was... More

Came for lunch with my wife, located down a small side street; had the figs/jamon/cheese as starters and the rabbit with ratatouille as our mains. Excellent friendly efficient service, good English spoken. The food was tasty and nicely presented. Together with the food and two glasses of red wine plus a coffee, the bill came to 68 euros. Highly recommended.

This restaurant was one a couple of recommendations by the helpful staff at the hotel Particulier. Ou first choice was one recommended by Conde Nast, but it had closed down. we sat outside and were fed upon by pesky mosquitoes, but the atmosphere sitting outside made up for it. Good food and reasonable prices and most efficient service by the... More

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.
