Being the only place in town at least mentioned in the via michelin, I expected more than standard simple bistro food. Had a fish soup and fish dish as starter, then taureau in different preparations. Was fine but not outstanding. Service was not super-friendly either, just doing the job. Would not come back.

Pleasant restaurant in a quiet, side street. Very busy, we had reserved, others were queuing. There were only two waitresses so the service was slow with forty people eating, about equal numbers inside and out. The food, plenty of beet and fish, typical of the offerings in the town was well prepared and cooked.

Very disappointed after hotel booked this for us. Very poor location on tatty, noisy street. Extremely sullen, unhelpful and slow service. Food was terrible, one of the worst meals ever eaten, steak poorly cooked and cheap, nasty meat. Wine was close to undrinkable, completely unacceptable in France. Avoid and will advise hotel not to recommend it.

This is an excellent restaurant on Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer a little bit away from the main road. The food is amazingly good and very good value for money. Make sure you reserve a table in advance as it is impossible to find space in the evening without it.

Their daube de taureau, also known as gardiane de taureau, bull meat stewed in rich red wine, comes awfully close to my Platonic ideal of stewed meat.

We enjoyed very much a light (also moneywise) lunch where fresh products were prepared perfectly to please both vision and savour!

Itwould be easy to miss this in a street full of restaurants and bars. I am glad we didn’t make that mistake. This is a family-run restaurant with good local produce excellently prepared and cooked. The little clams (tellines) cooked in a parsley sauce (persillade) for our starter were delightful and plenty of good bread meant that the fingers didn’t... More

Very small and off the beaten track...Good regional food at the right price. As it is so small probably better to reserve. A good choice for St. Marie, I recommend this restaurant.

The one thing you will never be short of in Saintes-Maries is a place to eat - the difficulty is finding a good one that distinguishes itself in the mass of tourist fare available. The Casa Romana is one such place, offering a good range of home-cooked food, super service and a real effort regarding presentation. The dining room is... More
