We happened across this charming restaurant off the Place du Forum. The food was wonderfully homey and delicious. We had the bone marrow and fois gras to start, which were perfect without being fussy. For main we had the lamb and the scallops, and finished with cheese and a raspberry tart. The quality of the food separates this restaurant from others in Arles, and the service was friendly and knowledgable. Ask for a tour of the 1000 year old cellar. We wish this could be our local restaurant in Hong Kong.

Run by a group of young people who provide first class service and superbly cooked food, complemented by an extensive list of quality wines. Limited menu - 2 meat and one fish dish, presented on a slate, implying regular changes to whatever was fresh and good. Our lamb cutlets were pink and tender, served with potato gratin flavoured with a hint of cinnamon, accompanied by a bottle of Gigondas from a good vintage. With kir, coffees, and Armagnac, the bill for 2 was 122 euro. Reservations essential.

What a great find, just off the place de Forum. Staff are very friendly and helpful, we had the 32 Euro set meal, was very good and the wine which was recommended, Chateau La Coste was divine...a lovely organic wine locally produced. Thanks to Caroline for the recommendation and a lovely evening.....my confuit of duck was mouth watering.....this is a must to visit....

In Arles (and Avignon also) it is sometimes difficult to have a correct diner. Not here, in the very center of Arles. The menu is short but fish and local meat are fine. The desk lady from Hotel Nord-Pinus recommended us this place and "Le Galoubet", also very good (we taste it) and only one minute from place du Forum.

I was visiting Arles for the Photo festival during the summer. I booked the day before as the place is quite busy. It was worth it: the food is good, the owners pleasant and seem to care (it's run by a young couple of natives and the man advised us on the choice of wine and seemed quite a connoisseur)... As for the comment bellow, we stayed really late and ordered desert past 10PM... Could it be that the restaurant was full? I can't imagine a restaurant in central Arles closing that early. It's also pleasant that it's so well situated in the center of town...
