We ate at La Roulotte, discovering it by chance, walking in the city center. Except for the gazpacho, the dishes were astounding. A mix of French, Arab and Spanish cuisines. Each dish seemed to have several flavors in it and each spoonful brought up a slightly or quite different mix of flavors. Each mouthful, a pleasant to incredible surprise.
For example, the Verreine de Citron had a tart flavorful lemon cream at the bottom, a layer of crunchy but mild fennel in syrup, a strongly flavored scoop of lemon ice and a couple fresh strawberry halves, bursting with flavor. Depending in how deeply you reached and which parts you got, each spoonful differed from your last bite. All the flavors integrated nicely.
Because of the gazpacho disappointment, we went back three nights later. Same menu, but we ordered all different items. Everything was wonderful. The disappointing gazpacho (indifferent flavor, none of the surprise in every other menu item) seems the one exception to avoid on a nicely varied menu.
Get there early ( around 7 PM) if you don't have a table reserved. The place fills up. Many people were turned away for lack of capacity! We were there in June, but August is the BIG, French tourist season.
Located on a very pleasant street, outdoor seating, you eat among the sounds of the old city. The service is very good, attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.
