One of our favorite restaurateur recommended L'escapade. We always look for a new experience when we visit GCBC twice per year. This was an awesome experience. Great food, service, atmosphere in this waterfront location. Owner Jerry and our waitress Rochelle have become dear friends with just one visit. We will always dine here. The Lobster Bisque (with chunks of lobster)... More

Sitting over the beach can't be bettered. This was expected,but the food was unbelievable. Have eaten at most every restaurant in Grande Case and Marigot and this as rated my #1 most visits. From the wine list to the fois gras,onion soup, Ceasars salad, ģrilled sea bass, veal chop, desert, cognac..This is how life is meant to be lived

There are many fine eating places up and down this street. This is certainly one of them. The view from the tables is spectacular looking out over the harbor. We stopped in with a group and had a wonderful time.

Had dinner with my family and all our expectations were met. The view was majestic! We were greeted and attended to by a professional and friendly staff. Every dish we had was expertly prepared and presented. The owner recommended a fantastic bottle of wine to us and there is a selection of classic French desserts to choose from. We recommend...

Have been coming to St Martin over 20 years. L'Escapade has always been good. This year we had the lobster ravioli which was divine. The fish pot dish was outstanding. A great view, fine food and excellent service. One of our favorites.

Someone had told us this was their favorite restaurant and we were disappointed. The food was fine but we ordered three appetizers and one main course for three of us to share. Although the waiter asked us in what order we wanted them, everything was delivered at once--both hot and cold. We hadn't even finished our cocktails! We were in... More

We were surprised this water front restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. We were served by the most pleasant staff and ate a wonderful meal of sautéed scallops , whole snapper, seafood stew . The meal was exceptional and the view just lovely right on top of the beach . The bright red satin table cloths and very few... More

It's true, the location was beautiful. Unfortunately the food was not. I had a bad feeling when at 7:00 P.M. we were the only people in the restaurant when most of the establishments in Grand Case were busy. My Wife had an alfredo dish but the pasta was one big clump. You had to cut it as if you started... More
