We arrived in Saintes-Marie-de-la-mer around 230pm so were a bit concerned that we wouldn't find a decent place for lunch. La Pequelette was close to the beach and where we parked. They very quickly accommodated us (a group of 8) and in good time we were treated to tasty food, generous portions, friendly service and great desserts.

We went here our second day of being in France, as they didn't have a table the night before. We took this as a good sign and succeeded on our second try. The portions were almost enough for two, which didn't at all take away from the quality! If you go here seafood is a safe bet, especially the muscles!... More

Great value for money, nothing fancy just good food. Excellent Morocco Kefta, super sized shrimps dishes and calamar. The guy who served us was running like in a marathon from one table to another :) I would recommend it if you're hungry and impatient.

We went into the restaurant expecting an average to good lunch - is one of many restaurants along the street next to the sea with simple décor and nothing to set it apart. But we ended up having a great lunch - food was just great!!!!. This is a place to have a good meal, relax, take it easy and... More

We ate here everyday! The salads were okay, but the tapas was wonderful, the moule was fresh and so tasty. The crepe was great, and the staff super friendly. Avoid the fried calamari at all the restaurants, very heavily battered.

After reading the reviews we gave this one a try there is a huge amount of choice of restaurants in Saintes Marie, but this one is definitely up there. Not only was the food superb, the portions were really good, the salads were especially amazing with the freshest of seafood (and lots of it!) the steaks are huge with lovely... More

It was the best restaurant we ate so far in saintes maries. The waiter was super friendly. We ate spaghetti fruits de mer and sangria. I would come back for more!

Informal restaurant with very good and attentive service. Cosy atmosphere. The dishes are well prepared with very good attention to deliver a creative combination of tastes. A very good experience in its whole.

Very friendly staff. More a beach side cafe than a restaurant.Locals drink there and are rather loud. Food was generous. We ordered two identical steaks, one was excellent the other was rather tough. The salad had dressing poured on it rather than being properly dressed. Not expensive

We came here based on TripAdvisor reviews - very glad we did. Our stroll through town left us less than impressed by the "they all look so touristy" places and La Pequelette was an appealingly low-key cafe by comparison - patronized by locals and a bit off the main drag. We had a terrific meal of tellines (local shellfish), mussels,... More
