Had an excellent lunch at La Telline during a cycling trip around the Camargue. Very intimate setting, decorated with beautiful antiques like old radios, bullfighting posters. The cuisine is simple, and masterful - local products like red rice, bull steak, grilled eel (cooked on the fire before our eyes,) and of course, the "telline" clams served in a dish tossed... More

We dined two nights at the very small (5 tables) La Telline while staying at their hotel, Mas de la Forge (separate review - loved it). The menu was the same both nights, and we get the impression that it changes a bit with available fish but otherwise is pretty constant. There are a handful of appetizers, and on the... More

So pleased we came across this wonderful place on TripAdvisor as we also found out they run a B&B! Which is equally as good! La Telline was a wonderful experience and had we been staying in the Camargue region for longer we would have LOVED to have eaten here again! The food was delicious! Simple, well cooked local food from... More

If you are visiting the Camargue area, you should not miss the experience of this restaurant. It is a tiny home with the restaurant downstairs that serves outstanding food. We all had the Royal Dorade and it was incredible. The fresh fish is brought whole to the table to show you before it is cooked and then the chef puts... More

We returned to La Mas de la Forge for two nights and two dinners at La Telline. This visit was even better than our first, last year. How these people serve lunch and dinner, maintain a top quality chambre d'hote, provide a generous breakfast boggles the mind. When do they sleep? Every plate at both dinners was perfectly sources and... More

The food is really good. The Dorade was wonderful and the chocolate gateaux divine. Everything was perfect, until we went to pay. The owner gave us the bill and, while we were beginning doing her compliments about place and food, she left us in the middle of conversation to go and talk to someone else she knew better. We remained... More

We drove around for ages trying to find the restaurant and when we arrived were rather worried to find no cars in the car park. We walked through the deserted garden to the back door and knocked. We were welcomed through by I believe the owners and were advised that the one other table for lunch had cancelled! We decided... More

fortunate to be staying at Mas de la Forge, and to have this restaurant at the end of the garden. Lovely regional food, in simple somewhat quirky surroundings. Food was both simple (dorade, camargue rice, salads, local wine) and exquisite - amuse bouches. Prices a little high, but this is a good place to be.

Since Chez Juju closed down in Beauduc, a legendary restaurant with an incredible history, La Telline is the best of the camargue's restaurants. I was in ares for the feria de paques and to start off the festival in Arles, a trip deep into the real camargue is a must. The decor perfect with an open hearth fire, the images... More

La Telline is what one always hopes to find but seldom does: an intimate dining room, far from tourist crowds, whose passionate owners offer the highest quality and freshest local products, simply but perfectly prepared and served with joy. The namesake telline are an outstanding starter, as was lentil salad with marrow bone. Fish, supplied by the owner's family of... More
