Had a lovely meal in this restaurant. The food and service were excellent. We are a family with 2 children, kids menu is good. Loved the seafood.

We have eaten here ever since it changed from a Creperie to a Bistro and have never been disappointed, The set three course menu changes daily so, if we don't fancy what is on offer, we don't go. Each time the brief description on the A-board outside just doesn't do justice to the presentation of the food which is imaginative... More

Our third visit to Escapades. The exterior does not do justice to the great atmosphere and fine food available inside. Relax with the amazing views of the sea and indulge in the fine food. Child friendly menus and colouring activities available while they wait. Great food and friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

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

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. Children's meals were served with the same style as the adults, a refreshing change to see this kids menu stand away from the standard... 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
