The restaurant,closeto the main square of st marie,is very nice,with a lot of colors on the table,the food is very good,well prepared and showed on the dishes,but the madam serving,speak only french.if you require explanations,she repeats the sa me list,wout any help.we were lucky and we chase well,but the girls were a little disappointed. The bouf carpaccio ands la gardienne de taurea were delicious.
The dessert were very limited but the fraze juice was good.

We stayed in a studio appartment in the St Maries for ten nice days in May. The "Lou Gabian" was just around the corner and we had lunch and dinner there quite a few times. We liked it so much that the kitchen we had planned to use a lot to keep costs down wasn't used very often.

First thing; The landlord's name isn't Lou - it is Christian. The name "Lou Gabian" actually means "The Seagull", but in Camargue language. "Lou" is Camargue for "le". We had many nice meals there and one of the best was the fish casseoulet with Camarge red and white rice.

Christian was very helpful. He and his partner, sorry don't have her name, arranged a meeting with a local guy named Alain Jalabert, that helped us immensely in our search for 50+ years old events and people that knew about them.
