  1. Well, your question gets certainlly to the point.
    I haven't been in a while but Rabanel's joint and La Chassagnette were pretty good last time Colette and I were in the area.

    1. Yes - some more details would be useful

        1. Had a great meal in a lovely setting in August at le Bistrot Mogador at the Chateau de l'Estoublon in Fontvielle. If I remember correctly, it was 32€ for 3 courses. There's also the Bistrot du Paradou (in le Paradou) about which much has already been written - 51€ for starter (possible choice of 2), no-choice main, cheese platter, choice of dessert, wine & coffee. Haven't been to Atelier Jean-Luc Rabanel in several years either, but it's recommended highly in other CH posts.

          1. We strongly recommend the drive out to La Teline in the Camargue. It is a singular experience, simple, honest, sincere and delicious. Here is what I wrote after our spring visit. FWIW, we will return next spring.


            La Chassagnette was a major disappointment. Our dinner there is described at the bottom of the above post.

              1. re: Parigi

                You didn't specify which specifications, but those that most people complain about is getting lost. So...from Arles...
                Take D570 south, direction Stes Maries de la Mer. Turn left onto D37 (east) to Villeneuve sign. Turn left for a couple of km and you will see both signs for La Telline.

                You can shave a couple of km off by turning left earlier onto D36 and following signs to Gageron and continuing to Villeneuve. But that is how most people get lost.
