The food has the right seasoning, the place is cosy and service is nice and precise. It tastes Provence! Wine is special and let the owner ride you through what you should drink.

When we asked our AirBnB host to recommend a local gem in Arles serving great food and wine for our last night in France, he suggested Le Gibolin. We were able to eat at one of their sidewalk tables and were not disappointed - the meal was definitely perfect for a farewell dinner. My starter was a carpaccio of burrata... More

Excellent meal out on the tiny sidewalk terrace. Service was delightful, attentive, food was delicious, and atmosphere on a warm August evening was lovely. The house rosé wine, served well chilled, was outstanding.

The food here was good and fairly priced. Our waitress was very attentive, helpful and bilingual. My only quibble is that the 'patronne' styles herself as a wine connaisseuse and she may well be. But not for champagne. She only carries two bottles, one 80 euros and the other 300 (which she 'doesn't mention really at all because it's only... More

I am sorry, we have no draught beer, but I will get you one anyway ;-) Of course you can taste our pitcher wine, please do. And of course it was very palatable. Our hosts did their best efforts to please us, and they succeeded. Quality food, good wine, very good experience

Yesterday I had the best meal during our last weeks in France and Belgium. The beef salad and lamb for main course was nicely matched with a red cote du Rhone. The atmosphere was great and both tourists and locals come here to dine on a Wednesday night.

I would have liked to review this restaurant but the owner is so rude and arrogant that we have preferred to skip the restaurant. The owner should remember that she is neither Bocuse nor Bottura so being a bit polite may be helpful. Even the dog should be more polite.

One of the best, freshest meals of our trip! Melon/Prosciutto entre and roasted cod with fennel plat....accompanied by a really nice chilled rose. Bread was phenomenal. Husband had salmon carpaccio and it was amazing. Seemed to be family run, quiet and unassuming in Arles. The quality was just so high and cooked so clean, it was memorable.

Excellent lunch, simple yet interesting preparation. The owner/host/waiter/sommelier does a great job, running the place apparently on her own (with some help from her little Tin Tin dog). The starters and dessert were great, but the highlight of the meal was the towering bowl of clams and mussels, with a fascinating sauce. You'd better reserve ahead of time though....

34 euro for a la carte 3 courses was soooo good. Rhum baba was expensive at 12euro but combined in the 3 courses for 34 euro was such good value, at least 10 euros of rum used in the syrup!
