The food was excellent, small portions but well presented tasty food, inspired from modern French cuisine. The local wine we tried was also excellent. The most interesting point though was the setting, this is a small restaurant which is next to the old roman theatre....More

After an evening stroll around Orange after a long and difficult journey from the Alps, we spotted this place set into a 'cave' of the walls around the historic Roman Arena. It is stunning inside and there is lots to look at. Messages and autographs...More

After finding many places kind of fully booked on Easter Saturday, this restaurant still had a few places available. The entourage was rather nice, except for a disturbing big TV screen that would take away your attention from time to time. The diner was really...More

Worst possible service experience ever!!!! Restaurant experience was ruined by the chronic rudeness of the owner of this restaurant. I would completed avoid this restaurant. There are plenty of other restaurants in L'Orange much better and I had a good experience in the town otherwise....More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant 100% and they were not wrong. We arrived early in the evening and by 21:00 the restaurant was full. I had the 28 Euro menu that included: a huge and delicious slice of foie gras, veal rib with wild mushrooms....More

We went there with friends and that was a very good surprise. Not at all a tourist trap, it is a true french restaurant right next to Theatre Antique inside a grotto. Very large choice of delicious wines and a cuisine of quality. The service...More

We found this restaurant by chance as we were walking in the little village of Orange. The restaurant is carved out of the rock face in the side of the mountain. The food is incredible and the service is good. If you get to Orange,...More

Situated between the Theatre Antique and the Roman Temple, in fact if you eat outside you are eating in the Roman Temple! The food was surprisingly good for what I thought would be a pure and simple tourist trap. The entrance to the restaurant is directly from the Antique Theatre - we paid 16 euro each for a really good meal (plat du jour) in a wonderful setting
