Fodor's Review

In a charming 16th-century building behind the Amphitheater, this popular, unpretentious place serves regional specialties cooked by the genial owner and chef Christian Gimenez—homemade salt-cod brandade, jarret d'agneau (lamb roasted with black olives), and bourride (Provençal soup)—at good prices. The pureed potatoes with truffled olives are a remarkable garnish, and make sure to order one of the many excellent Rhône Valley whites with the fish. Don't miss the terrific lunch deals.
