Charming place with excellent food and service

We have visited this restaurant after reading reviews on TA on a first night of our trip in South of France. The place is run by a family. Lovely outside space.

We rarely return to a restaurant twice when visiting France because there are so many options but this restaurant deserved a second meal....both were outstanding, our welcome was very warm. Very provencal in decor....hubby loved his bull stew and second time, the sea bream which he raved about while I devoured the lamb chops and was thrilled to devour the... More

We had a fabulous meal here at Saturday lunch during peak season so the restaurant was packed. Luckily we'd booked a table but as there were 4 adults and a baby we had to sit inside. It seems the terrace was only set out for couples dining. The service was slightly slow but we enjoyed the leisurely pace and had... More

Our dinner here blew my mind. The quality, preparation, presentation, service and ambiance all win accolades. Bravo! With menu / 3 courses including exquisite fresh seafood and regional specialties, for 29Euros, this place is an amazing deal. They are even thoughtful to bring half of the wine At a time so that it stays cool for serving when a full... More

Everything was exquisite! Great service and food. If you want a restaurant that offers an intimate ambience this is the place. It's a small venue but the vibe is just perfect.

Excellent hospitality (Aurelie and Charlotte are delightful and very adept at their work), excellent atmosphere, excellent food. What else can you want? My wife and I have been patronizing this restaurant for three years and have brought many guests along the way. We have never been disappointed in the slightest and have only praise to offer. In our view, the... More

Our hotel recommended this quaint restaurant and it did not disappoint. The food was fresh, cooked to perfection and plated with their own unique flair. There were four in our party and we each ordered something different and it was all wonderful. Even the wine recommendation was spot on. Do not miss this restaurant when you visit Arles and be...

Best food hands down!! Love the ambiance. The staff are amazing. The food, you can't get better. We went to St Remy the next day and was very disappointed but it really wasn't fair to them after eating at Le Cirquet. My mother had the duck and it just melted. The sauce was amazing. My sister had the lamb...wow! And... More

We arrived there at 12 o'clock, we were the first but within half an hour the rstaurant was almost full. They have a little courtyard with small tables, comfortable chairs and good service. Food was excellent and cheap for this quality.

On the strength of numerous TA reviews, we dropped in (early) for lunch and they had a couple of outdoor tables left. We chose the two-course deal (formule) and were delighted with a Mediterranean fish concoction, served on a bed of tomatoes and olives. After that we were served a creme brulee. Together with a half-litre of house rose and... More
