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... .

Delightful restaurant with excellent fresh food, carefully prepared. Unpretentious but correct, with excellent service. Highly recommended in Arles.

We finally had the meal we have been waiting for on this trip to France and Spain. We tried to eat at Criquet twice before but it was closed Tuesday and sold out Wednesday. So, we made a reservation early in the day for dinner Thursday. When we arrived at 7:00 they were sold out for the evening. We had... More

We chanced on this little restaurant, close to our hotel, on our first day in Arles. What a find. We enjoyed a delicious lunch. The duck was superb as was the sea bream that my wife had. We shared the best Chèvre we can remember with a bottle of local red. When we arrived at the restaurant we thought that... More

Wandered by on Saturday afternoon and realized it was top rated. Did not think we could get a table for that evening but went in anyway. To my surprise (and we do dine early) they had a table. When we returned we were warmly greeted (they remembered my name) and shown to a table upstairs. For starters the milkw feuille... More

Simply amazing. From the moment we entered this very charming family run restaurant we were made to feel welcome. The hosts were wonderful and attentive. The decor had a coay, rustic, upbeat feel. Provencal food at it's finest. We had a very relaxing dinner, a bourride, soupe de poissons, (Seafood soup, with aiole sauce, bread) and the bull stew was... More
