Nice small spot with really good food and service

The restaurant was very nice. We have gone there two times so far and maybe will again tonight. Whatever you order is good and the prices aren't that bad either. Service is very good and they are very accommodating to us that don't speak French at all. They have a full menu and bar.

Have to say we were very disappointed with our meals here. The service was cordial but far from warm. We and another table near us were disappointed with the lack of support working through the menu. The appetizers were just OK, my salmon dish was overcooked and mealy. The real disappointment came with the main course--my seafood dish was mediocre.... More

Le Plaza is a small bistro-restaurant in the center of Arles, operated by a warm, inviting, and service-dedicated couple. Provençal dining wonderfully (sensationally) prepared, indoor and outdoor tables, very nice wine offerings, at very reasonable prices. We went twice. A perfect spot!

My husband and I were in Arles August of 2014 and ended up eating here per one of the recommendations of our guidebooks. We had narrowed it down to a few choices, but when we saw this place, we knew this is where we wanted to eat. It was on a quiet street and we were able to get a... More

We stayed three nights and Le Plaza was easily the best food, service and overall experience. Tough act to beat and thoroughly recommend. It was deservedly full tonight so go early or book.

On a Monday night in January Le Plaza chose us, as it was the only place open in that area. Lucky choice: close interested service and cuisine of a high order.

When we traveled to Arles in December 2014, we asked the staff of our hotel to recommend some restaurants for us to dine. This restaurant is one of the two. We had a very pleasant dinner experience here. The 3-course menu costs 27€. All the dishes are deliciously made. The quantity and the quality of the food are both worth... More

a very quaint restaurant right in Arles that was able to accompany a group of 14, reservation a must with that size. Some of us spoke French while the others did not...have no fear the waiter kindly translated everything and even drew pictures of shrimp! The onion tart was a fan favorite along with the beef stew! Kids friendly!
