Very popular restaurant notable for the Flamenco band that plays on certain evenings. Supplement of 3 euros added to bill for each person to cover cost.. All the players from the same family- they sell their CD's at the end. Food good- service remarkably prompt considering how busy they get. Booking essential- we as a group of 4 got the... More

Although in the Carmargue this restaurant has a strong Spanish feel. The menu and general ambiance plus the Flamenco guitarists all reinforce this. The food is really good. We shared a tapas plate to start and had paella and a stake each. All great; good quality and substantial portions. While many of the restaurants in the local area looked good... More

We have been there as a group of 6. Flamenco musicians were very good indeed; food good quality and above average for a very touristic town in August. Very friendly service in spite of the place being crowded.

Make sure you book a table when the music and dancing is on, as it always sells out. We were lucky enough to get a front row table, and the standard of the musicianship is superb, however the flamenco dancer is out of this world. If you have only ever seen the stampy fling-your-arms-around-a-lot type of flamenco, then go and... More

We only visited this place because it was 21.30, late in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer to have a proper dinner, and Tripadvisor ranking was not so bad. HUGE MISTAKE, BIG FAIL. It is a tourist trap. The fish soup was okay, spicy. Monkfish in fatty cheesy cream sauce was way too expensive and without enough monkfish. Paella was spicy, but on the dry... More

One of the best if not the best restaurant in Saintes Maries. Service is great, with a gypsy group playing entertaining music. The atmosphere is very typical. Food is also amazing. Prices are ok

We found this restaurant down a narrow street in the town. It had local families eating. It seemed very noisy but everyone knew everybody else and also everyone passing by! We returned the following lunchtime and found it was just as lively. The food was excellent, and was served very quickly. We were not rushed and were able to sit... More

El Campo is situated on one of the lovely little lanes in the middle of the lovely little town of Saintes-Mairies-de-la- Mer in the Camargue. The staff were friendly and the service was very quick and efficient. We chose the soupe de poisons and a carafe of rose wine. The amount of soup we were given was very generous and... More
