Great little tapas bar recommended by our Air B&B hostess. For a flavorful lighter dinner at a very reasonable price this was a great choice. Limited wine list, although what I had was good,more beers and liquor. Service was a bit slow but it was pretty busy.

We practically live in Arles, so their restaurants are well known to us. Ever since visiting Spain, we have been interested in La Bodeguita, but our timing has never met their scheduled service -- they would either be closed or finished serving. It was nearly the case again this last time. In the off season with major projects disrupting businesses... More

Relaxed atmosphere with prompt and friendly service and delicious food. The patatas bravas were better than the ones we had in Madrid. The food is well seasoned and well prepared. We had a selection of tapas - sequentially as we tried them. All were excellent and the server was very responsive to our staged sampling. This is an excellent choice... More

We discovered this restaurant on our first night in Arles, the food was so good that we booked a 2nd night and went again. We rarely enjoy our dining experiences so much and after spending some time in Barcelona this summer our tapas expectations are high. Consistency was spot on, really enjoyable and reasonably priced tapas. The welcome was warm... More

A very lovely place, very busy. Our waitress spoke no english and was servicing too many tables. Part of the menu wasnt available. The local beef was very tough , the seafood plate uninventive. A pity really.

I discovered this restaurant back in 2010 while I was in internship near Arles. La Bodeguita was the place to go for aperitif and dinner with a bunch of friends. It's conveniently located in the very center of Arles, near the Forum square. Tapas are worth it, simply good and copious, but they also have other main dish to offer... More

Had some great tapas and wine during the France Iceland soccer match. The vibe was loud, young and fun.

Saturday night in Arles we took our chances on finding a table somewhere. Came across Bodeguita which was packed to the rafters with noisy happy diners. Sat outside at one of two tiny tables on the narrow pavement and enjoyed a very good meal in pleasant street surroundings. My partner had caramelised pork fillet while I had a dish which... More

The food here is so good. I had the roasted chicken leg, the cilantro-mint meatballs, the fried chorizo, some cheese and some empanadas. I'm not a huge fan of tapas, but this restaurant makes them worthwhile, giving you a decent amount of food and a great amount of flavour per tapa. They also serve half-litres of wine for 8euros which,... More

In France, we usually eat a big meal for lunch, then are looking for something light for dinner. This place is just perfect for that. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the spanish tapas are delicious, and the prices are moderate. The wine is also very good. The evening we were there several families with small kids were also having a... More
