Very friendly service and very good traditional food. Oddly Dinard is not over endowed with good restaurants, but this one is terrific. Make sure you book.

This restaurant is extremely overpriced for what amounts to little more than frozen cardboard calamari thrown into not hot enough oil, fish soup out of Tupperware containers or tasteless dorade (which could have been anything) camouflaged with ginger.

Quite simply the best mussels on the planet worth travelling long distances to experience the flavour of the freshest seafood imaginable. Lovely setting and a friendly ambiance of people enjoying good food well prepared.

The restaurant has a very nice marine/piratesque interior (to commemorate Captain Haddock and Popeye) and a very obliging staff! It is mostly frequented by locals. The menu consists of perfectly fresh seafood and convenient wines for reasonable prices! Overall a perfect dinner under perfect circumstances!

My wife and I went to this place on the suggestion of our hotel. From the onset, we were very impressed with this little gem. Great fish and wine with a dame blanche to die for! The owner was extremely hospitable and the atmosphere traditional yet cozy.

From start to finish, this lovely restaurant captured our hearts (and stomachs!) The welcoming nature the initial hello set the tone! How kind to be... More

L'Escale is a long standing favorite dining place for locals and visitors. The menu offers a nice selection of well cooked fish and meat with a sound touch of exotism.
