The Boss got angry because I asked him why the Kids have to pay 9,50€ each to share a Pizza if a single Pizza is 10€. I wouldn't have mind if he would charge me 3 or 5 € for an extra Plate, but 19,50€ for one Pizza and getting really angry because I asked why is what made us... More

大変美味しく頂きました。日本語の口コミだけではなく出来るだけ多くの世界中の旅行者にお知らせしたいので続きは英語で‥This restaurant had been closed every evening after chiristmas, but we found it was opened this evening.We had scallops with green onions and vegitable soup for appertizer and beef stew and wild boa stew for main course.Every dish was mouthful.We were very lucky to have them.It was the cheepest and the best diner since we came to Arles.

The building is old and full of atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and the menu was hand written on a large metal board which was carried from table to table - a little hard to see from a distance. The house wine was excellent and water and bread were provided automatically. My wife chose chicken served with potato which... More

This wonderful bistro sits right next to the Baths of Constantine and the banks of the Rhone River. The food is just as good as the ambience and worth savoring. It's a perfect place to take in a sunset. The wait staff were great and helped me along as I spoke French to navigate our order. Highly recommended.

Very good local food, fast and friendly service, but only in French. A little bit away from the centre nearby the river and therefore quiet. We were very satisfied. The price is reasonable, or rather low.

This is the most difficult review I wrote. The quality of the food out-weigh the short comings. I'll let you be the judge. - The number of waiter staff is at the short end. The evening we were there, only one waiter served the entire outside: 6 tables occupied by couples and a group of 6 and 10. - You... More

Very accommodating restaurant, for our group of 14. The price fix menu was limiting on choices but it was a holiday night. The house red is the way to go!

An ideal location to sit, relax and enjoy good food. We arrived as the sun was setting and watched the birds roosting in the wall of the roman baths, then we were treated to bats flying. There is an english menu available to check as you enter the terrace. Very helpul. I choose octopus stew, very tasty.

At first glance, La Caravelle down by the river seems small, quiet and a bit out of the way. Even the staff seem a little too burly for a fine dining experience. But take a seat, you won't regret it. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent. The restaurant and surrounding structures are some of Arles'... More

This was by far the rudest establishment that we experienced during our 3 weeks in Europe. After wandering Arles, we happened to be around the baths of Constantine and noticed this restaurant. Since the menu was outside, my family and I looked at the menu and decided to eat here. There were two people sitting outside who I assumed to... More
