The last time i had dinner with friends at L'Escargot is a few years ago now. Since then, André has died, and the restaurant is being converted into a Mexican joint. Probably won't eat there -- not outside of Mexico and the US South West,...More

This restaurant has been permanently closed due to the death of the owner Andre. A sad ending to one of New Plymouth's best eateries

While living in New Plymouth, we often went to have dinner there. If you wanted a nice meal and a matching wine, that was it. Not anymore...Just sad the owner, Andre, passed away this year. Will never be the same.. RIP Andre..

Superb food and excellent service. This restaurant can get busy so advisable to book. Drinks all overpriced, but can can recommend the dining experience and will visit again.

This place came highly recommended and we left very disheartened. By the time of our booking we were one of the only tables in the restaurant. The staff really wanted too get home and have never felt so rushed in all of my dining life....More

Our dinner is excellent. Andre' L'Escargot is a top class French restaurant with prices to match. You could quibble about the toast with our escargot, fresh bread would have been better, but overall an excellent dining experience.
