We had a meal here on the recommendation of our host at L'Amphitheatre Hotel and were not disappointed. The place is busy but with a great relaxed vibe. Lovely decor. Food was excellent with great wine and service to match. Don't miss this one.

I had a local Nimes speciality - brandade de morue - as well as an excellent white wine recommended to me, and thyme, honey and lavender ice cream for dessert. Very popular - it filled up quickly while I was there. I would definitely return.
