Great hidden gem!

We avoided the large tourist restaurants and stumbled upon a great little spot on a side street for lunch. The chicken dish Cerberus with potatoes, mushrooms and a salad tasted great only to be outdone by a local red wine.

Located just aside of the famous but overly toursitical "place du Forum", this little restaurant is a great place to have lunch or dinner. Its spannish cuisine is excellent, especially its "poule crémeuse" (chicken breast cooked with cream and chorizo) and its "camembert rôti" (a melted camembert cheese... sooo goood !)... and don't forget their deserts, especially the "pain perdu"...

This is a tiny restaurant that concentrates on serving great food. Everything we had there, from appetizer to desert, was just excellent. Server is great, smiling, has a lovely provencal accent, and his goal is that you have a great time in his restaurant. Nothing else to add - one of the 2 bests restaurants we visited in Arles. I...

We ate lunch here in late September 2014. During a two-week, multi-city stay in Provence, this was one of the most memorable meals we had. The restaurant is intimate, with a small amount of outdoor seating in a space shaped like an alley and, as we remember it, surrounded in plant life. Our waiter was super friendly, and eager to...

We had a wonderful evening at this small and intimate restaurant. It was a beautiful evening so we sat out in the entry way where they have tables on each of the stairs leading to the restaurant. The owner and waiter did not speak English but he worked very hard to help us. The other guests were also very helpful... More

We stumbled upon Querida and were intrigued by its quaint patio and Spanish inspired menu. Were we ever glad we stopped for lunch! The dishes were interesting, flavourful, fresh, and good value. I ordered the tarte special and my husband had the <<poule cremeuse>> (chicken in a cream sauce with chorizo and manchego cheese). Both were fantastic. The sangia was... More

I highly recommend this place. Really hard working owner, serving great food in a really relaxed setting. We were advised about this place by one of the staff from the hotel we were staying at 4 years ago. We have been back on about 5 occasions over the years and have never been disappointed. As I have found on most... More

Querida is near the Forum and worth the search. We were greeted by the friendly staff and sat in the open entranceway. Lots of atmosphere here. We had one of those incredible, close your eyes and enjoy every bite meals. Pieces of chicken in a smokey paprika cream sauce topped with very mild chorizo sausage, manchego cheese and grilled peppers... More

Excellent food at very fair prices. The chicken with chorizo and manchego cheese was wonderful. Plats came with a salad and vegetable of the season. I would go again.

This small restaurant is in a tiny street easy to find and a real gem in Arles. The food is of quality, Spanish with a French touch that you feel in the wine choice wines and desserts (really good). Run by the owners, very polite and efficient. I
