Five Great Restaurants: Uzès

Table de Julien Place de la Mairie 30700 Saint Maximin Just five minutes outside of Uzès and well worth the drive. This restaurant is owned by a young, local couple whose fabulous food and excellent service, make for my favorite restaurant. The menu, which often includes foie gras, is limited, but changes regularly and is never disappointing. Ideal for special occassions. Reservations are recommended, especially during the high season. Indoor and outdoor seating.

Les Terroirs 5, place aux Herbes 30700 Uzès If you have ever been to Uzès in the summer, you know that it is a mad house. This restaurant has the perfect spot for outdoor seating on the Place aux Herbes and it's often hard to get a table. When you do get a seat, you will enjoy fresh salads, tartines, and tapas. A great wine selection is offered on the menu or in the gourmet shop inside the restaurant. Outdoor seating only.

Du Chai d'Uzès
54, Boulevard Gambetta passage Marchand 30700 Uzès Best place for wine, small dishes and great conversation! This small, lively wine bar, owned by Thierry and Valérie, has an extensive choice of wines by the glass or you can choose a bottle from the wine shop and pay a 7€ corkage fee. The wine shop is connected to the bar and wines are sold at the prix des caves. Small dishes include charcuterie platters, local cheese, stuffed grape leaves and pâtés. Indoor and outdoor seating.

Le P'tit Coffee 24, Place aux Herbes 30700 Uzès Tucked away off the beaten path of the main boulevard, this restaurant is the perfect place for a light lunch and a view of the Place aux Herbes. Menu includes a salad niçoise topped with pan seared tuna, local goat cheese served with perfectly ripe figs and tartare-frites. There is a nice beer and wine selection. Outdoor seating only.

Millézime 6, Boulevard Gambetta 30700 Uzès A young Parisian couple has found the right formula to keep customers coming back to this restaurant. A large menu selection of provençal style cuisine combined with a laid back atmosphere, open 6 days a week. This restaurant is perfect for an outing with friends or an impromtu dinner. Always busy, fun and it won't break your bank. Indoor and outdoor seating.

    It's great to see that you posted something about Le P'tit Coffee.I know them since a few years yet,and I just would like to speak too about their famous Parillada,a nice choice of three different seafood,Tuna, rouget's filets & king prawns,served with a delicious "écrasé de pommes de terres" & "mesclun" fresh salad,olive oil,"tapenade" and a special red sauce named "rouille".
    Cyril,the owner,and Xalbat(the Chief)are always very nice with us and all the guests we send there(we have some gîtes in Collias, just 10 mn from Uzès,5mn walking from Le Castellas,a two stars Michelin restaurant, excellentissime!!!),and always enchanted to help them to discover the southern specialities of our gastronomy.In spring & autumn,thre's a few places inside too,but you have to make a reservation,because local people appreciate a lot this adress....
    Another amazing place is Le Bec à Vin,one of the bests places of Uzès,as well as Le P'tit Coffe.Mediterranean specialities,served in
