We dined at Le Grillon which is next to the Roman Amphitheatre, a great location. The crêpes were hot and tasty and the service good. The ambiance was enhanced by live music from two performers with a guitar and drums. We would go there again!

I had lunch there on Sunday 24 August 2014 and chose the taureau steak. It was so tough that I left half. Thank goodness I did because later that night and all the next day I had severe food poisoning, necessitating a visit to a local doctor. After no food for 48 hours and 5 days of medicine I recovered... More

We were staying at a nearby campsite and cycled into Arles for the evening. We walked around the amphiteatre and wanted to eat dinner with a view of it lit up at night. The menu at Le Grillon had plenty that our family (2 children aged 9 & 8) could eat and it was a great choice. My wife and... More

This place was buzzing but we could see the great food being served to tables and despite us having to eat inside rather than outside overlooking the Roman arena, we decided to go for it. Two of us had a really delicious Mediterranean seafood soup served piping hot, smooth and creamy accompanied with mouth-sized tostadas, Alioli and finely grated cheese... More

Had a family dinner at subnset by the Arena. Unbelievable experience. Great food for all ( incl 3 American teenagers, 1 vegan adult!) Warm, hospitable staff - roving guitarist playing "Gipsy Kings Hits" Reasonable and high quality local wine. Highlight of our Arles trip.

Very good food right around the corner from the Hotel Le Calendal and facing the Roman arena. What a setting for a casual meal!! Great egg dishes in the morning as well. We ate there twice and liked it a lot.

Le Grillon was one of a very few restaurants we found that opened for dinner at 6PM. We took advantage and were their only customers for 20 minutes. The duck breast and redfish were perfect for us. Satisfying portions and under €45 for two with 25cl glasses of their vin du pays. As we finished dinner, the limited indoor seating... More

We just wanted a small bite to eat and when we saw the Quiche de chevre et légumes we decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. The service was fast and friendly. Our food was good and the bill was ok. Moreover you have the Arenes just in front of you which is nice. Great place for... More

It is located right next the magnificent Roman Amphitheater which is one of the reasons that Arles is a World Heritage site. We were looking for a place to have lunch on New Year's eve. There were alternatives nearby but Le Grillon had the most customers in their dining room. Their lunch prix fixe (formule Midi) with "le dessert gourmand"... More

If you are looking for a restaurant with a great view in Arles and a BAD attitude, this is it. Of all the restaurants I visited in France, this scores highest in rudeness! The view of the arena is great; I love the architecture is fun. The manager/owner really needs a lesson in customer service. Please stand nearby and take... More
