We arrived at 3pm, the time at which it closed and asked if they could give us something quick. The charming hostess went off to ask the chef and he said that he could do steak frites. I said I was veggie and asked for...More

I thought that it’ll probably just be a wee bit poo… crummy, maybe? Sort-of-typical airport super-rubbish fast-food. Au contraire. L’Escale is a quite-lovely white painted building constructed in the Art Deco style, angles and curves in delicate harmony, white-painted handrails either side of the staircase...More

Most of the restaurants next to the airports are small and dilapidated, this one is indeed one of the rare exceptions. It is very nice to sit here with nicely prepared food and drinks. Great to enjoy the sun and the breeze outside.

We have been visiting this restaurant sporadically for about 30 years. A lot has changed there during that time but the food has been consistent. I have never had a bad meal and mostly it has been outstanding. People raise their eyebrows when I tell...More

despite being away from city center (better use a bike to come), l'Escale is a good surprise. Food is great and menu of the day is bringing the vatiety lacking on the main Menu. Service can be a bit long when the restaurant is crowdy.
