Since Chez Juju closed down in Beauduc, a legendary restaurant with an incredible history, La Telline is the best of the camargue's restaurants. I was in ares for the feria de paques and to start off the festival in Arles, a trip deep into the real camargue is a must. The decor perfect with an open hearth fire, the images on the site do no justice to he actual restaurant, full on saddles, old posters re Arles' corridas.
We started with tellines, accompanied by a fine Bandol, which was perfect. Tellines are always a slightly annoying to eat as they are small clams and the eat is difficult to attack out of he she'll, it can become frustrating, however it is worth the effort. This was followed by pave de taureau or fillet of camargue bull' accompanied by a light green salad and camargue rice and a wonderful cote du Rhine by Nicholas Croze. The pave was slow cooked over the open fire. The meat was cooked to perfection.
An olive oil with local herbs was offered to go with rice and offered a superb accompaniment to he meat and salad. A rice pudding, Armagnac and coffee finished the meal.
Overall experience, excellent. Price point at 60 euros a head fair. You cannot visit the camargue and not visit La Telline. Menu highlighted here are the house specialities. You will not be disappointed.
