absolutely superb

I absolutely recommend this restaurant. The food was remarkable and it is a lovely quiet restaurant, clearly family run, with an imaginative menu but not at all pretentious. I had a marinated beef that was a triumph. Reason enough to go back to Nimes!

My partner and I spent our summer holidays in the south of France this year, and L'escale des Saveurs was certainly something to remember. Set in a silent little square, this family-run restaurant offers local traditional dishes as well as exotic specialties. Friendly environment with an excellent value-for-money choice. If you're in Nime you definitely want to try it.

A surprise in everyway It was a cold wet october evening and we happen on this restaurant, great delicious food with a wonderful selection of wine , I can just imagine on a nice summer evening sitting outside on their terrace, in the old city of Nimes, which is in itself a great ancient city with roman arenas etc..

This is one of 4 restaurants who share the square. We had lunch there and only 2 of the 4 resraurants had guests. Lunch was a choice of 2 main plates. We chose duck breast and it was excellent. I think this is a husband and wife operation and they have things running very well - really nice food and... More

This was a birthday celebration & the five of us all agreed it was very special as the surroundings, the food & the ambience were all excellent. The set menus at €23 & €25 had lots of lovely choices, three courses so good value. Sitting outside in the square on a warm evening, watching the world go by & eating... More

We had a really nice dinner here. All 5 of us ordered a different dish, and all was very good at a very good price level. We can recommend it. Nice owners, great location on a romantic square.

We visited the restaurant twice - once for lunch (which was fine) and once in evening. The staff were lovely and friendly and the menu offered a good selection. Portions were a good size and the overall cost of meals were reasonable ( if that is possible in France!). We sat outside in the square during lunch which was lovely... More

We went dining together with our 8 year old daughter and had a great time. The restaurant is not expensive but the food has that special touch you have in restaurants with stars. We were there on a rather cold evening and could not eat on their terrace, but that will be for the next time !

We ate here based on prior reviews and were not disappointed. In all honesty, we were initially a bit turned off by the locale (a rather dingy square) and the restaurant's interior, which has a sort of tacky Hawaiian feel. The menu itself also looked a bit odd. Kangaroo! Wasabi! However, don't be deterred by these things as the food... More
