Great Find !

This is quite a small restaurant that spills out onto a little sideway, termed as a terrace! The welcome is second to none from 2 lovely sisters with Mum cooking up a storm in the kitchen! This is good honest to goodness food, fairly simple but with a flourish and good presentation. I would... read more

Nice little restaurant, family run business and very well done. Make sure you get a reservation. Good local dishes well prepared and presented. I would certainly recommend this place.

My duck was slightly over cooked and my dessert was bland. Also I expect good wine to be served in good glassware, not IKEA glasses. After reading the reviews here and seeing it's ranking I expected more. The service was excellent.

Went as it was high on TA and we were not disappointed. Delightful service, interesting menu and good wine. A word of warning. I chose Cod with seafood which turned out to be Razor clams and Whelks. So if that's not your cup of tea then ask when you order.

Nice restaurant with good food but just missed the mark. The staff were friendly and professional but the food was just 'good' and not anything more.

The food was lovely and featured many local products combined in contemporary arrangements. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Unless you are lucky, you will need a reservation.

This was one of the best meals we had during 2 weeks in Provence.I highly recommend the octopus, bourride and raspberry dessert. Three dinner companions all were very happy. We had 2 bottles of local wine, one was a special noted on the wall. Delicious. Imperative that you make a reservation.

Ate here on a Saturday night on the terrace, which is actually the alley between two buildings but fine. Polite and knowledgeable service, we had a shared starter and then beef casserole and sea bass, all presented beautifully and good sized portions. A pichet of wine and a bill of less than 50 € for two was good value.

We dined at Le Criquet on our last night in Arles, having walked past it and booked a table in advance. The waitresses are hardworking and diligent and offer friendly service. The food is very tasty, menu is provincial and portions are generous . We both enjoyed our meals however, as we had the pleasure of dining in such fantastic... More
