“Best steak in France!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

As a matter of fact, it was the ONLY great steak in France! My companion routinely orders whatever's closest to filet mignon (he's a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy :-), but was sadly disappointed with the steaks in most French restaurants. This one, however, was -- in his words -- "STELLAR!"

Great service, great atmosphere, very romantic, fabulous food!

“Nice meal and good value for money”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

We ate here last week and had a nice meal - good value for money. It was very quiet, being end of season, but we were made welcome. Would be happy to go back.

“Lovely atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

Tucked between Constantines baths and the river wall this restaurant is well wort a visit. It was in the shadow of the evening sun but lovely atmosphere sitting outside. Very friendly service and intersting mix of nationalities. Food is very good and sensible portions, even if the smouldering herbs on top of the steak is a bit of a gimmock!

“A cool restaurant, hard to find. Friendly staff.”
Reviewed November 10, 2009

We got "directions" in French from our hotel Hotel du Musee staff (which I thought I understood!). We went searching and got lost three times. We wantdred through town , seeing back alleys and deadends. When we finally found the restaurant it was half a block from our hotel ! We had a good laugh about it and went in. That night we were the only guests. The waiter was charming. We had a wonderful 3 course meal. Had the house wine,and decided we would like to take some back to our hotel. They graciously let us buy 2 carafes and take them with us, and we promised to bring the carafes back the next day (which we did). A small town feel and very good food.

“Open Late, Friendly Service”
Reviewed July 4, 2009

We arrived late in Arles and missed our reservation at another restaurant. La Caravelle was able to seat us at about 930p. The meal was delicious and the staff attentive. We were the last ones there, but they absolutely allowed us to take our time. No rushing us out the door. Which was a very good thing because we got engaged that night! The staff joined in the celebration but also knew when to let us have some time alone.
