“Good food, nice atmosphere”

La Grotte D'Auguste
Ranked #12 of 107 Restaurants in Orange
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: French
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: Situated between the Theatre Antique and the Roman Temple, in fact if you eat outside you are eating in the Roman Temple! The food was surprisingly good for what I thought would be a pure and simple tourist trap. The entrance to the restaurant is directly from the Antique Theatre - we paid 16 euro each for a really good meal (plat du jour) in a wonderful setting

“Nice meal!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Just by the fantastic Roman Arena (ruins), this restaurant serves the best dishes in Orange! The tasty steak and fries, plus the surrounding, makes it a nice stop if you visiting Orange or on your way to somewhere else (easy accessible from the highway).

“Set meals good value but limited choice”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Tried this following the reviews and the food was indeed very good but it's not the place for a quick lunchtime snack. The set meal of 16 euros looked like good value but it is a SET meal with no choices. As the starter was a seafood velouté I was immediately put off I'm afraid. We opted instead for the 28 euro menu which was lovely. The general prices are about 10 for starters, 22 for mains and 9 for desserts.

“When was the last time you lunched in a Roman temple?”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

Plat du Jour offered a very good value lunch for 16euro. Very good service and a fabulous location. We could not understand why it was not busier
