It was near our hotel and was recommended to us. It was crowded on a Sunday night. The ravioli entree, the duck and the sea bass were all task. The dessert sampler was good. Good value

Called in for lunch when we arrived in Arles and this was one of the restaurants recommended by our hotel. Le Criquet has a great location - very near the Roman Theatre, very friendly service, and a very pleasant feel inside - though the loos at the top of the stairs might present a hazard to the infirm or inebriated....

This restaurant is close to the colosseum in Arles. I normally avoid restaurants clustered around the main attractions of a city, but there are several exceptions to this rule in Arles. Le Criquet is one of these exceptions and is well worth a visit. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. Appetizers, mains (including pasta, fish and meat)... More

Choice of 6 entrees and 6 mains all local provencal fare , simply cooked and yummy. I had foie gras and lamb followed by the assiette gourmande... More

We went for an early Saturday evening meal at Le Criquet, having eaten at La Pergula the evening before. We were able to get a reservation by phone during the late afternoon. This is a bistro and the food is good, but not great, La Pergula is certainly significantly more sophisticated and better value. If we lived locally, La Pergula... More

We were happy to get a spot here on a Saturday night (even a touch off season). Sat downstairs we had a fairly intimate and very enjoyable experience with an excellent and varied menu at a reasonable price (28€ - starter-main-dessert) coupled with patient and very pleasant service. A treat... .
