Large outside seating area and smaller inside area. Food average but OK. Service adequate. Great area for people watching whilst eating and drinking. We only had the bruschetta and drinks. Toilets are monitored for guests only using

Love the funky seating area outside this place and great atmosphere. Food pretty average. Salads overdressed and steaks on the tough side. The fries were amazing though - garlicky and herby. Ice cream good too. Average value for the area. Worth it for the location.

We ate the special of the day and were thoroughly disappointed. The food was boring and very bland - I don't usually add salt or pepper when I eat out, relying on the chef to do the tasting beforehand, but this time it was needed. To add to this we felt the service was very slow, even though the restaurant... More

The siesta is nothing to write home about - just your average bistro on the coast serving the same kind of food as everywhere else. The menu was okay, nothing special, but a fair deal for what we paid. I had the soup aux poissons, my friend some beef in dark sauce with rice. Both dishes were all right, just... More

No rationals behind those cocktails. No art. no care.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really a bad mix. Just image. Stay away from it.

We chose this place to have our final holiday meal, and we enjoyed it fully. The food was lovely and delicious, the service was excellent and three summer music performance was good too. The only little comment I would make war that the creme brulee was a bit eggy. All in all a great evening!

Nice place for some ambiance (with live music or the radio speakers on a fairly high level), hence not the greatest restaurant. Fastfood-like presentation and rather small portions. The dessert (moelleux) was great in presentation, but not freshly-made and didn't "run" at all. In summary, great location in the city centre and stylish interior. Great for having a cocktail!

We were already many times in Saintes Maries de la mer, but never visited this restaurant. As the reviews on tripadvisor seemed good we wanted to try this restaurant for lunch. We ordered beef stew, some tapas and the Cazpacho. Cazpacho was to salty and the rest of the food seemed old and was not tasty at all. I am... More

My brother, SIL and I were exploring the Camargue for a day. It being a Sunday in January, our lunch options in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mere were limited, but this restaurant looked okay. It far surpassed our expectations! The food was delicious, the presentation lovely and our waiter attentive. I'm sensitive to noise, but did not have a problem with the music volume,... More
