Excellent address in Arles

The Restaurant has a tiny downstairs with an open kitchen, and a slightly larger room on the second floor. Ambiance is very rustic, stone walls and big corner fireplace (used as a service stand). The "Gardiane de Taureau", a great local dish in this part of the country, was presented in a very... read more

We dined in the small front room beside the open kitchen and luckily arrived early without a reservation, since the place filled up quickly. Welcoming service, family run, nobody giving a second glance as a couple of patrons brought their dogs in with them. We had baked oysters, bull steak, and gambas, all beautifully presented and delicious. A most pleasant... More

This is a beautiful, small restaurant with great and attentive service and wonderful wine and food options, including the classic "gardenier" (beef bourguignon) which is highly recommended. The creme brulee is amazing.

We stayed in Arles for 6 days and ate at several of the best recommended restaurants: Le Criquet, L'Autruche, Le Plaza, etc. Without doubt La Gueule du Loup was the best - even though pronouncing it in French is a nightmare! Small, intimate, with excellent, discrete service. A limited menu, as befits a small establishment but everything cooked to perfection.... More
