I really wanted to like this restaurant because we were staying in the hotel. The wait staff was very sweet . The fish soup was delicious, but the baguette that came with it was not crusty and seemed as it had been sliced much earlier. The fish in a packet with pesto was ok once you seasoned it with salt....

This is the restaurant for the Best Western Arene Kulm. Menu has an Italian influence. The pasta is very good and the service exemplary

We selected this restuarant because we arrived late to the hotel, of which it is connected. First, the service was exceptionally fast and friendly, and most accomodating to our picky little eater (no sauce or herbs on her pasta). Unfortunately, 3 meals (steak, chicken and pork dishes) were all poor quality. meat was overcooked and difficult to chew, my chicken... More

This restaurant always reminds us a bit of La Pasta in Funchal, Madeira. Why? It has great pasta! And delicious tiramisu. Once in a while we go there and we always greatly enjoy our meals. This time we were lucky to have chosen a sunny day, so we could sit on their terrace. Wonderful wine, excellent service and good food.... More

We were surprised at this restaurant's high rating having recently eaten there before going to the Orange opera. Maybe the restaurant over-reached itself; there were 40 or more tables out in the square for a minimal-choice dinner, pre-opera, at about €27. It is certainly central and very convenient for the amphitheatre but the food was a great disappointment. An aubergine... More

Very friendly staff and wonderful manager who helped translate the menu into English. Dishes were excellent, all ingredients were fresh, big serving and very well priced. We went to a a few restaurants in Orange and this was clearly the best!

The first time we came was when I'd broken my arm and when I had to go for a check up, we decided to try it out, because we love good Italian food. And we've been coming back ever since. Whenever I break something, Espressamente is on the menu;-) No kidding, I've been to the clinic five times now, and... More
