Restaurant is located downtown Grand Case right on the waterfront. You can hear the ocean as you dine.

The atmosphere was elegant but relaxed. Service was excellent. Food - especially the seafood - was very good.

We stopped in here twice for the French onion soup, and it was delicious both times. Our waiter, Paul, had a great accent, and was a very attentive waiter. We had a 1/2 bottle of wine, which was just enough to go with our soup. The soup, to me, with the cheese and toast, is a meal in itself!

Perfect view of the area. Food was very good. I had the beef rib and it was excellent. Wine was a bit expensive but we have come to expect that in St Martin.

Stopped for lunch. The food is fresh, beautiful presentation & waiter was very friendly and professional. The restaurant sits on Grand Case Beach so it was lovely to has a 1M view while enjoying delicious food, Enchanting! Highly recommend. Surprised this restaurant was not ranked higher than 21. Loved it.

L'Escapade has a beautiful location and ambiance but the prices were high even for Grand Case. Water $7 for example. We've been here before and knew what we were getting into, but I feel the meal was not worth the money. The French Onion soup was mediocre at best and the $28 shrimp salad was small, tasteless and only had... More

This authentic French restaurant in the French Quarter of St. Martin has unbelievable food, service and atmosphere. Ask for a table overlooking the beach....oh my goodness, so beautiful! For an appetizer, we had the best escargot we have ever had! Served with warm homemade bread, it is fabulous. My husband had grilled sea bass, which he loved, and I had... More

From start to finish, this was by far the best restaurant we visited on vacation. It is in such a cute neighborhood right on the water in Grand Case. The staff was super friendly, the French onion soup was to die for, and the rest of the food was stellar. We will most definitely return the next time we are... More

If you looking for a great place where you can distress from work but still keep your clients happy this is the place. Great view and great ambiance. I must say the fillet mignon and the duck plate are my favourite. The view is to kill for and the music is really according with the mood.

So I didn't think we could top our dinner at Ocean 82, and this was equally a great choice! I might even say, my side dishes along with the sole were exceptional! My husband's fresh catch of the day was also incredible. Great from salad to dessert!

On our first day in Grand Case this was the first restaurant we happened upon and seeing the incredible view we decided to try it. What a great choice! The service was excellent and the view spectacular. The waiter recommended the French onion soup which was very good, and very cheesy. But the standout was the escargot, prepared to a... More
