This restaurant is located near the Arena. I went there for lunch during my stay in Arles. The service was on point. I had a fish platter and a rosee and it was very satisfying. The view is great for lounging and people watching.

Must say i wasn't expecting a lot from this place. We really wanted to have a quick lunch. Considering how busy was the service was fast and orders taken immediately. Not a big table and not excellent food but is was good and nice value for what we had. If you like something simple and not expensive go for lunch.... More

Terrible! They had a board advertising their special posted outside at 9:30 PM. Once seated we were informed it was for lunch only. I ordered the plate du jour and my husband had the steak. My food consisted of mashed chicken in a sauce that tasted like Campbell's cream of something soup and a side of mushy rigatoni. My husband's... More

Food was good, but just good - price fully acceptable, waiting bit slow, food quite simple. Preffered very heavy plates, that propably made slowish service even slower. Location good.

After we' ve visited the Orange and Chateauneuf-de-Pape we had a lot of experiences. Probably we were tired and we couldn't decide very well. We had hamburger and Italian salad, it wasn't good. Arena view has been confort to us.

It was difficult to find a restaurant in a cloudy december day in Arles. At the end we found Le Grillon nearby the amphiteather. We were a little worried that it were a tourist trap but we gave it a try because we were really hungry. And what a great choice! We ate really well (goat cheese salad to share,... More

We were on a Viking River Cruise and had the opportunity to visit Arles on our own after the organized tour. After shopping and seeing a number of restaurants, we found Le Grillon's menu to be the most appealing and the lunch and service proved to be a great choice. We sat outside on a beautiful fall day overlooking the... More

I knew things were off to a bad start when the waiter brought the wrong wine and had to be told twice to clean off the table. I had the Mediterranean fish soup,which neither tasted of fish nor had any bits of fish in it. The steak was fairly tough with 1/3 of the serving just fat and gristle. The... More

Having arrived via the Eurostar I wandered around near my hotel for somewhere to eat, and came across this place located next to the Arena. The waiter who greeted me was very friendly and helpful even though his English wasn't too great (but a lot better than my French!). The crepe starter and bull steak main with potatoes were cooked...

We wandered around this wonderful town looking at the sites and multitude of restaurants. We started at the top near the amphitheatre and after a few hours we ended back there where this restaurant was very busy. The friendly staff squeezed us and we selected are food. The carpaccio of beef for a main course was both unusual and lovely.... More
