A public holiday so we 5 old school friends did not expect too much. How we were wrong. Good and pleasant service and nice atmosphere in the covered and heated outside. Starters of fruit de mere, snails etc all better than many other HONFLEUR places I have visited. Fish on stick, duck all on set menu 28euros and much enjoyed... More

The menu outside the restaurant looked inviting. We entered and were left waiting for several minutes, one waiter told us his colleague would attend to us. We were seated in the back room, where the crockery, table cloth and cutlery were all covered in dust, as though the table hadn't been used for some time. Without being given menus, We... More

We went to this restaurant last Saturday, 1st October. We walked in and waited for a waiter to show us where to sit, we waited almost 5 mins, when the waiter finally showed us to a table, it was one in the back area near the toilets. The crockery looked very nice on the table, but we noticed it was... More

The food was excellent. Meat was tender and the sauces were the best for a long time. The duck was beautifully done, great vegetables. Everything was top notch. Apple tart again had lovely sauce. A real dining experience with idiosyncratic but efficient staff. Nice decor inside too.

We actually ended up here because we wanted to give our newfound restaurant a break. We had a nice meal of cockles, duck confit and flounder. The service was good and the price was reasonable. We would return to L'Escale.

Me and my parents visited this restaurant and the food was by far the best we ate in Honfleur! None of us went for the fish but had the chicken in cream sauce, which was served with mushroom and potato, and all of us loved the meal. We also had a white Bordeaux wine and I had the creme brûlée... More

Service was exceptional, with all requests carried out with great courteous goodwill! The starters were exceptional, and somehow the main course and desserts even better! A great little atmosphere in the square, especially as even outside there is privacy between you and the bustle of those walking around outside.

Unlike one of the other local restaurants (Brasserie les Deux Ponts) this one proved to have a less attentive attitude to detail and the dishes were of a poorer quality with plates of very small Moule and undercooked meat. There was no check as to customer satisfaction after the dishes were presented and when the undercooked meat was pointed out... More

Honfleur is a very pretty place full of eateries specialising in seafood, all would appear to be touristy and have prices to match. This restaurant is off the main drag, so to speak, and is in a small square. We elected to give it a go as the menu seemed reasonable and fairly priced. As with all resteraunts your bill... More
