A wonderful discovery

Have been in a state of despair for several years since the closure of "Le Minaret", on the banks of the Odet in Bénodet, where there was nothing around to better their superb coquilles Saint Jacques, fillet de bœuf au poivres and their home made vanilla ice cream. So to discover ESCAPADES in... read more

Food is tasty,but portions are minuscule, service is so poor, definitely wouldn't recommend this Restaurant- when we tried to detail what we weren't happy with, we got a shrug of the shoulders although we had French and English speakers so they just didn't want to know....., we wouldn't return! Very dissatisfied

The service provided by the young man was really good but the food element was less than we expected. That's not to say it was poor quality but we wouldn't have expected mussels of the size served to be used by the restaurant - they were simply too small. The restaurant should not have served them in our opinion.

After some lovely meals elswhere in Brittany, on a whim we decided to try this one for dinner. We had the set menu for around nineteen euros, which consisted of a 'gourmand' salad, salad leaves with some smoked salami and cured ham, veal stew of which the gravy was tasty but the meat chewy accompanied by some tired penne pasta...

Escapades is always busy so booking is recommended. We spend four weeks each summer in Benodet and have never been disappointed with the food or service at Escapades. The menu of the day is worth looking at and offers good value. For those of you taking the canine member of the family to France they are very welcome in Escapades... More

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...
