It’s impossible to travel through Arles and the Camargue without a stop at La Chassagnette, the organic restaurant from chef Armand Arnal, whose reputation is second to none. Enjoying a magical setting with an organic certified vegetable garden fully part of the decor, the establishment combines both natural charm and contemporary design, to the delight of its customers.
In the kitchen, Armand Arnal, who began his career alongside Alain Ducasse, puts all his heart and energy into preparing tasty food combining finesse, freshness and simplicity. The recipes vary seasonally and create an explosion of surprising and refined flavors in the mouth. To prepare his dishes, the chef uses organic vegetables and herbs straight from the garden to which he adds, according to his desires, meat or fish. Mesclun pulp with basil and cucumber ice water, and yellow zucchini and tomatoes with sage served with sea bream poached in a saffron broth... The chef works on the bitterness and acidity of the recipes and assures a gluten-free kitchen.
