The food was all right. Nothing more than that. The environment was anything else but attractive - however the service had been nice and friendly even if it was not very professional. All in all: it is not easy to understand why this place is listed as # 10 out of 190 choices.

I ate lunch here with my girlfriend. We chose the regional "assiette Provençale". Especially the ratatouille was delicious! The waitress was very kind and made us feel welcome. The environment was well decorated with natural elements, it felt romantic. Worth your visit!

Small restaurant in the center of Arles. The chef really cares about your opinion. It's an honest, cosy restaurant. The staff is friendly and price is good!

Sebastian is the wonderful host. We walked up and asked for directions to another restaurant and he turned us around. First it was his personality being the owner chief describing his food, how fresh and different it was.. So we stayed. We write this review because of our host and mostly the food. Sebastian was correct it was fresh different,... More

First time I've been here and I'd love to come back! Excellent authentic French food, welcoming staff. Loved the atmosphere. One of the best meals I've ever had.

Why, oh why, is this place rated so highly on Tripadvisor? I have little to say. The staff was friendly and we were able to eat here on a weeknight without a reservation. Clearly other tourists read Tripadvisor as everyone was speaking English. The meal- tapas a la Arles/Provence- was unremarkable and a bit overpriced. This place is fine, but... More

Maybe just picked a bad night. Sat down, read 'board', chose meal.Then, when ordering, were told of various changes eg 'this is not available...we have that instead' etc. Should probably have called it quits at that point and gone somewhere else but stayed. Meal not poor, but was highly overpriced for what it was. Service fine. Bill was added-up incorrectly.... More

The owner is very friendly. You must at all costs try the salmon terrine, delicious. They offer a varied and interesting menu. The service is impeccable. The prices are very acceptable. I highly recommend it.

Having checked in to the hotel next door and not wanting to walk any more than the 10,000 steps we had already done today, we tried this quaint restaurant. As is typical with most 20 or so seat restaurants in France this is a two person operation - chef in the back, and host/server out front. We were enthusiastically greeted... More
