Fodor's Expert Review Le Galoubet

$$ Arles Modern French Fodor's Choice

Tucked away under a canopy of green, this cozy and popular-with-locals bistro with a spacious and pretty outdoor terrace serves contemporary French fare far above the usual offerings. Relax in a vintage armchair over an appetizer of creamy burrata cheese with perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes, or grilled sardines with arugula and olives, followed by succulent guinea fowl or steak smothered in fresh morels with golden frites on the side. Seafood factors large on the menu and there are plenty of vegetarian choices. A top-notch wine list, which focuses on natural, small-producer wine, can be a revelation.
