We tried to eat here last year, but couldn’t get a table, so we booked early for our first evening back in Benodet. There is an outside dining area separated from the pavement by a glass screen and tables in the restaurant itself. We chose to eat outside as it was a mild evening. For starters my wife choose crab... More

We had a good quality meal in comfortable surroundings. Our young waiter spoke good English but was happy to help and encourage my school girl French. We both had the fish of the day which was beautifully presented cod that tasted yummy. Our deserts were huge works of art that hit the spot. Luckily we had a walk afterwards to... More

I really enjoyed this though the portion size for the fixed menu was a bit small. However the couple beside us had the shell fish medley and it was huge. My daughter had the salmon on their kids menu and really enjoyed it. House wine was reasonably priced and pleasant.

In short avoid this place, there are many nice restaurants in Brittany but this is not one of them. Poor quality food - all was previously frozen - the staff while pleasant, is young and unprofessional - a person at another table dropped their knife on the floor and the waiter picked it up and gave it back to them...

Visited at lunch time to avail of formulae, 2 kiddies in tow! 3 courses in kids menu for €10, can easily say it was the best kids food we've seen in a long time, great quality. Adults loved their food too, tasty, fresh & overall good value. Excellent service, friendly & efficient. Will be back

We had the seafood platter, and it was excellent. There wasn't any pressure to rush eating this huge meal, so it was a pleasant evening in a beautiful restaurant with amazing views. The service was first class. I would happily eat here again.

This restaurant has quite a fine dining menu-great for couples but we had to leave because the choice for young children was too rich. Looked a lovely restaurant though

We stayed 4 nights in Benodet and asked our host Christian at Domaine de Kereven (which by the way is an excellent place to stay) where we should eat and he recommended Escapades. It was so good we ate there 3 of the 4 nights we were in Benodet. It's just relaxed, friendly with excellent quality food that is very... More

Last night of our holiday and we decided to eat out with our grandchildren to enhance their first experience of France. We all loved the restaurant itself, the service was friendly and the food.....nom nom! Not too pricey either.
