As far as we can tell this restaurant is run by four ladies. They are cute, lots of fun, and love to share smiles and local tips. The food was fantastic. The wine list is a little narrow but the wine we had was good.

We have eaten at XA many times over the years and the food and service has been consistently great. This is not a brasserie with big plates of food, this is a simple, elegant, but casual, restaurant. The atmosphere is warm, slightly quirky, with amazing vintage lighting and mirrors. The décor reflects the lovely owner and her menu.
The menu has a seafood slant but includes vegetarian options. The food is fresh, and light with a modern take on traditional dishes using local produce. The set menu is 28∈ for three courses. The dishes I keep going back for include the entrees of anchovies or the shrimp salad – clean fresh tastes - main choice, Gratin de la Mer, - fish and shrimp baked in a saffron sauce. The small rounds of goat’s cheese topped with tiny basil leaves and drizzled with an olive oil and cracked pepper vinaigrette is a work of art. The house white wine from the Camargue region is a superb match. Try this restaurant, you will enjoy a relaxed evening with good timing between courses and convivial hosts.

This is a very special place with the most beautiful vintage decor. The food is wonderfully tasty, aromatic, hand made, elegant, light and filling at the same time. We recommend the fresh anchovies and the light beef madras curry, but you can also have Provencale classics which are fresh from the market like home made foie gras and fresh catch of the day. We love the informal and yet chic atmosphere here. We celebrated a birthday here with friends which was fun and then another time went for a romantic dinner.

We have visited St Remy many times and always have at least one meal in XA. Over the years the food has always been superb but it is the lovely owners who make this such a wonderful experience. They are caring, attentive and their gentle style makes for a truly relaxing time. The decor is fab, its quirky and like going back in time in a retro way. the dishes are simple but elegant and very fresh using local produce. If you get the chance do eat here!

I do not mind paying up if I get value. I did not get it here. The service was excellent but the food was not up to par with the other places I tried in Saint Remy. The magret de canard was probably the worst I had in the whole trip. I had some shrimp appetizer that looked like they were just out of the freezer. Every body else is rating this place with 4 *, so maybe it was my luck?
I had to admit that they recommended a wonderful local wine "mas de la dame", was very good.
