This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide and hotel and was wonderful. We had choices of entrees (appetizers), main meals and desserts, with a fixed price for what we chose to include. My wife had grilled vegetables for an entree and a fish dish for the main meal that was great. I had grilled red peppers with some sort... More

I've visited Arles a number of times and have had some good but many indifferent meals there. Chez Caro is a real gem providing excellent, light food and a well curated wine list. And the price is good too.

Chez Caro's food was good, but not as good as many meals we have had in Provence. The service was acceptable but not warm or friendly. The atmosphere was fine, and all the other diners were French speaking, which we liked. Nonetheless, the food was not wonderful. The fish stew was very mild, and the dessert was average. I think...

This place lies in the Place du Forum on the southeast corner away from the yellow Van Gogh kitchy restaurant that lies on the southwest corner. We received attentive but not overblown service and had appetizers and main courses that would appeal to most meat-and-potato American guys. They had a huge wine list written on blackboards that was NOT overpriced.... More

Thank you trip advisor! Thanks to you we ate here. We are lucky enough to have some amazing restaurants in London where we live....so are very fussy and spoilt! Chez Caro is stylish, delicious and a perfect way to enjoy a fine dinner in beautiful Arles. We sat out on the terrace in the square. Truly scrumptious ....

high quality french cuisine served on lively square in center of Arles. Service a little chaotic when things got busier.

Delicious food in the centre of town, served attractively and with a good wine list. Fresh ingredients and a short, simple menu. Service was a little hit-and-miss though...we ended up being served by three different waiters, with orders getting lost in between. Still, a very pleasant evening.
