Would never have found this restaurant in an alleyway without our hotel's recommendation -- but one still needed reservations: Arles' own citizens seem to love it. Poisson banane's specialty is the grill so we had the cote de taureau (Camargue bull steak) and excellent lamb chops. The accompanying vegetables were generous and nicely spiced: eggplant puree, peas with peppers and a courgette-tomato mixture.Possibly the best scalloped potatoes ever. Had also very much enjoyed the appetizers of a rabbit terrine and heritage tomatoes with excellent mozzarella. Live jazz and lots of plants made for a great atmosphere on a cold, rainy night. Service was a little spotty but we'll put that down to new staff in a restaurant that only (re?) opened recently. About 90 euros for two, with a fine bottle of Baux de Provence red.
