Eat here one evening after spending the day working in the Amphitheater around the corner. Joined a group that we were working with. First the location is very deceiving, you think you are entering a normal building but inside you find yourself eating in a cave! But it doesn't feel claustrophobic at all and the smells from the semi open... More

My fiancé and I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and were able to go for lunch during a day trip to Orange. The meal was fantastic! I can't really speak to the service as we went later in the afternoon and were the only table there so our service was great. (Also, as a side note, always take with... More

From the outside of the restaurant you get no clue as to what's inside ... you are dining in a cave! The place has a lovely feel to it. I had the lasagne and it was quite honestly the most delicious I have ever tasted. I would love to go back again some time :-)

LA CANTINA Restaurant is a rare jewel of a place in Orange city. Whether you are a regular or a visitor you will be warmly greeted. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, yet smart enough for a business dinner.  We were sent there by locals and made sure that we went back before the end of our trip. The food... More

We were slightly apprehensive about this restaurant, having read some of the reviews about the slow service. However we had no complaints and my coquilles St Jacques were excellent and attractively presented. The service was rapid and attentive and there were plenty of staff. The main courses were not cheap but excellent and therefore good value. The starters were good... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced place to eat prior to going to watch Lang Lang play in the Roman theatre. After consulting Trip Advisor, we chose this one as a suitable option although we were a bit worried to read the most recent review the day of our booking highlighting poor service. Perhaps we were lucky (or they... More

The service was very bad, took very long to order. They never asked us to refill our glasses, if we wanted more bread or how the food tasted. But the food was great! But the service so bad the chef had to serve the last dish.

Like George L below, we just happened to notice the signs on the sidewalk which point up the alley. Then we liked the menu (and its prices). We were not disappointed with either the lasagne (8 euros) or the pepper steak (11 euros), and would be happy to eat there again. I don't know if the other customers were locals,... More

My wife and I found this restaurant only because there was a sign by the sidewalk pointing around the corner. Our curiosity led us to one of the best restaurants we could have hoped for. After eating the food, I remarked to my wife that I'd like to come back here every day until I had tried everything on the... More

Not what we expected in Provence. A place where well cooked meat in an open grill is a speciality. Set in a cave it looks like it might be touristy but,not at all. The menu is not Provençal but instead focused on good cuts of meat. I had the andouillettes, a northern French speciality of trip sausage. Perfectly cooked on... More
