“Great value meals with spectacular Roman backdrop”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Never having got the hang of French restaurants and their opening times we nervously chose the first restaurant we set eyes on upon our arrival in Nimes. We had read reviews about the pricey restaurants near the Arena area where we were staying, but we were hungry, and had all too often missed the rigidly kept times when French restaurants will actually feed you. First impressions were not great: a simple menu, hardly any guests, and seating by a busy road. However, the staff were friendly and the food was fine. We sat overlooking the amazing Nimes Arena, the best preserved Roman amphiteatre in the world, about 15 metres away. Later that day we discovered that the prices charged in the 3 Maures compared very well with other Nimes restaurants, and we went back for another nice meal.

“Rebirth of a tradition”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We have finally found a good restaurant in Nîmes, unlike many of the other tourist traps restaurants found accross the city. At the newly reopened Les 3 Maures is located in the middle of a very active sector just across the largest, and one of the best conserved "Roman Arènes", in Europ. Les 3 Maures offers a very good, while affordable, cuisine and diligent service. This is no place for a quiet evening if you happen to be there during one of the Fiera events or one of the many shows held in the Nîmes Arènes throughout summer. This restaurant reopen in April (or May) after beeing closed for more than 6 months. The new owners are very dynamic and we were told that the wine list and menu will be expanded while the dated decoration while be redone. We will go back for sure.
