Chez Bob

Route Sambuc , Villeneuve Gageron
Arles , France
33 4 90 97 00 29

A famously funky, beloved restaurant on the mosquito-infested plains. Vintage photos cover the walls of this former ranch, many featuring the handsome Bob, a charismatic Resistance hero (Bob is a nom de guerre). Conviviality and generosity define the family-style meals here. Tables overflow with crudités, dips, platters of charcuterie, fire-seared lamb steaks, garlicky escargot brochettes, and duck confit, paired with several bottles of Domaine Haut Lirac 2004, a rosé from Languedoc.
