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

We decided to try this as it was rated so highly. We ordered the entree, plat and dessert. The entree for both of us was too salty as was the main dish. We don't have too much salt in our diet normally so maybe that is why we felt it was too salty. But the wine was good and the... More

I came here based on Trip Advisor reviews, and although the food was very good, I can't say it is the best in Arles. I ordered the menu of the day which was veal with a cream and lemon sauce, followed by a tiramisu with cinnamon cookies. The veal was a small portion (fine for me) but the sides were... More

My wife and I have eaten at Le Cricket twice. Their meals are very well presented, extremely tasty and the service is excellent. The whole experience dinning here has spoiled us for any other restaurant we have eaten in up to now and probably for the rest of our trip.

Small, unpretentious restaurant hidden behind the theatre, good local dishes, excellent service, not expensive. Good for romantic dinner.

Like many booked after seeing reviews, friendly voice at end of phone when booking and warm welcome on arrival, the two sisters are great but we felt the food was so typical of other average places we know, the set lunch menu of a shank of lamb, nice but not difficult or exceptional and a dessert of raspberry with cream...

All 6 of us had the price fixe for 28 Euros which included appetizer, main course and dessert. There were no complaints at all from any of us. Highly recommend this place for fine dining.

We had lunch here following a visit to the Arles Saturday market. The food was very fresh and delicious. Service was great and staff were very friendly. The lunch menu is very good value for money. The cocktail of desserts looked amazing - unfortunately the yummy starter and main course proved so satisfying, that we couldn't eat any more. Next... More

This family run restaurant is very nice and the food.......... you are gonna remember your dinner here!! I would recommend the tiramisu for dessert, instead of trying all the desserts for a +2Eur. They are all good but the tiramisu deserves one entire portion!
