Refined cuisine and elegant setting embodying the Camargue in central Arles
Local, organic and seasonal produce
Décor styled by Christian Lacroix
In the historic quarter of Arles
When visiting Arles, stop by for a gourmet historic break at Lou Marquès restaurant, set in an old convent dating from the 17th century. In a welcoming setting designed by Christian Lacroix, you'll discover local flavours in our dishes, from confit of bull beef to rice dried by the sun and wind of the Camargue.
Named after the pioneering Camargue settler, Marquis Folco de Baroncelli, our restaurant showcases this beautiful region, firstly in its colourful, contemporary decoration, full of historic references to Roman times and to the Camargue's cowboys. Secondly, and most importantly, for its refined and balanced cuisine full of Provençal flavours.
Savour our signature recipe, langoustine risotto served with organic rice grown in the Camargue. Our desserts will enliven your taste buds too, with such delights as candied orange in a Grand Marnier crêpe or caramel ice cream flavoured with local fleur de sel.
Rosemary, sage and mint, the aromatic herbs from the garden in the old cloister, perfectly complement our delectable dishes. Our chef, Joseph Kriz, also uses regional producers like the Mas du Trident cheese factory, known for giving new life to the traditional Tomme cheeses of Arles.
Lou Marquès restaurant has long been a favourite haunt of passing visitors and local couples. Like them, you can take a seat in the warm ambience of our welcoming designer bar, or relax on the pretty, streetside terrace and sample a Madame Lacroix Spritz our recreation of her favourite cocktail, or a beer from Gardians Brewery.
Flavoursome dishes using local produce and herbs from the kitchen garden in an elegant setting
A famous couturier
Christian Lacroix was a regular in our restaurant and also created its distinctive décor. In 2014, he redesigned Lou Marquès, giving it a typically Camargue theme, and while preserving the character of this historic building, introduced a noticeably contemporary style.

(Translated by Google) Phew! Ignore the grumpy comments. Happiness from the aperitif to the coffee, both for the cuisine and for the service. And the decoration alone that we sit there.
Pfff! Faites fi des commentaires des grincheux. Bonheur de l'apéritif au café, tant pour la cuisine que pour le service. Et la décoration à elle seule qu'on s'y attable.

(Translated by Google) Proper cuisine, which perhaps believes itself to be a little superior to what it is. Pleasant atmosphere, the appearance of the cat at the end of dinner is nice. Service much too slow which has difficulty in organizing itself. We had to go to the kitchen to find someone to pay the bill!
Cuisine correcte, qui se croit peut-être un peu supérieure à ce qu'elle est. Ambiance agréable, l'apparition du chat en fin de dîner est sympathique. Service beaucoup trop lent qui a des difficultés à s'organiser. Il a fallu aller en cuisine pour trouver quelqu'un afin de régler la note !
