We went for lunch and throughly enjoyed it. Great food, the lamb curry was fantastic, and a great setting. Great value for money, well worth a visit.

This restaurant is worth making the trip to if you're in the area. It is very small, so book ahead. Eating out on the terrace in the evening is very pleasant. The menu offers about 5 choices of each of starter, main course and dessert. Careful cooking was evident, with very tasty outcomes. The menu changes regularly to reflect what... More

The restaurant is set on a little Hill in the center of village. Small menu but top notch quality, extremely high value price ratio. The service is very good and friendly. Small place so call to make a reservation.

Few tables. Outstanding view. Good and effective service. Small menu with marvelous dishes. A fondant a chocolat that is worth a trip from Sweden. Rightly plriced, i.e. not too expensive. Make sure to reserve this unique place. We actually went there twice to make sure to taste several of their dishes.

We chose L'Escampette because two other nearer places were closed...a strange Gallic custom being the Eve of Bastille Day and the Tour de France having just passed by! It was definitely worth the detour and we had an excellent evening on all accounts. The location, the service and the food which my locally based companions had not expected. From the... More

This, as I have said before is our "go to" restaurant. Superb food, service, wines and atmosphere. It never fails to impress. Average per head for three courses including wine under 40€. I've taken some picture this time so enjoy.

A favourite local restataurant. The food is cosistently good and the owner very obliging. Fabulous view from outside forecourt . Apart from a very recent visit, I was there in June when sitting outside watching the most spectacular sunset. Be prepared for a windy ascent to the top of the village where the restaurant is ( opposite the church) but... More
