Excellent value at 33 euros for a very high quality 3 course dinner. Probably one of the best all-round meals we have had on our current trip through eastern France. Not necessarily creative but all dishes beautifully prepared and presented. As others have mentioned sitting in the vine covered terrace on a warm Arles evening was a very pleasant experience.

This restaurant has a very nice outside terrace, but you must make a reservation in advance to be sure to be seated there. The food is great and the winelist is even better (if you like natursköna made wines). The chef is very nice and can advice you on the wines. I will definitely visit this restaurant my next visit...

Luckily we booked a table for two the day before for Le Galoubet because after our arrival at 8pm they turned away multiple groups. The food is unpretentious. It is simply presented but each dish in each course was delicious. Try the marinated fig entree and then the spatchcock noon. Desserts are all good but I particularly enjoyed the chocolate... More

Not a tourist trap! Genuine fresh local cuisine without hype or pretension. Recommended by a local. Near the Van Gogh Foundation.

After a recommendation from a local businessperson - we tried this place for an early lunch (12:00h). We were slightly early and glad to be seated on the beautiful terrace. Many other customers were turned away without reservations as this place is popular. It's popular because it delivers a delicious range of local specialities at an appealing price (€27 or... More

Atmosphere on a warm summer evening on the terrace was lovely. Food was quite good. Service was just fine, except for one thing that a week later still bugs me: we ordered a bottle of red wine, a 30-40€ bottle, and the server arrived at our table with the bottle already uncorked--I was surprised, and said so; after all, there...

I was in Arles for 3 weeks. The owner of the house we rented recommended this restaurant. The first time I went there was for an early lunch in Europe at 12:15. The people in front of me requested a table for two and got seated. When I requested a table for one, in a fairly empty restaurant, the man... More

We reserved at the restaurant because it was recommended everywhere, even by Christian Lacroix. When we arrived, the man behind the counter didn`t even look at us, just told us to wait. We stood awkwardly for something like ten minutes, before we were shown to a table. And there we waited again. The waitress didn`t greet us, she just said... More
