This was a fabulous local French cuisine restaurant. Mad great mostly by the owner Andre who died a while ago. The restaurant has been closed and sold unfortunately. There is little similar to to chose from at his level.
PS Date inserted as it was a while ago but did not want viewers disapointed upon arrival.

After the passing of Andre, this restaurant is now closed.
Our lasting impressions include the French provincal style of cooking, the impeccable presentation and the congeniality of the host and his staff. Memorable too, was the numerous times his establishment was recognised by the critics of fine food in New Zealand and the many awards achieved. His ability to create fine food will never be replicated.

An institution in New Plymouth, this place has been exceeding expectations for years. A fantastic building and decor, matched by a menu that is relatively basic French fare, but consistently excellent. A wine list to match. Table service was just great. We were in a party of 8 and no one had a reason to complain. Want to feel great after a special dining experience? Go to L'escargot. And be prepared to pay. Just suck it up and enjoy.

Thank PedroNP
