Good little resturant

A nice choice of restaurant in Benodet. Great service, we arrived soaked to the skin after a downpour and were given a tea-towel to dry ourselves off. The food was lovely, opted for the set menu.

We had the pleasure of dining here to get out of the rain and was very impressed by the place. Between me and my family we have very limited French but the staff with their little English made us feel welcome and the waiter was very patient and helpful when dealing with us. The children's menu was a set 3... More

We have been to Benodet many times but this is the first time we visited this brilliant little restaurant. We definitely won't miss it next time we go. It was late lunchtime & we didn't know if they were still serving. The young man serving was helpful polite and extremely pleasant. We chose the sea-food platter, and I have to... 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...

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 Bénodet with a friend, who lives in... More

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
