Had dinner here. Interesting flavours, very fusion-led food. A lot of African and Caribbean influence. Lovely setting in a square with other restaurants, under a canopy. Amazing wine list with a vast selection of local Nimes wines. Good price, 23 euros for a 3 course set menu. Friendly and accommodating owner who speaks good English and is helpful to explain...

After reading some of the euphoric reviews, we couldn't resist trying L'Escale des Saveurs for a leisurely lunch. And we were certainly not disappointed. The restaurant is located in a quiet square, shaded by magnolia trees and sunshades. We chose the lunch menu, very good value at 16.50€. The starter we both chose, asparagus crème brulée, was unusual and tasty,... More

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.

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

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
