Delicious tapas!

We visit Esculapi often every summer. This is good place for lunch ir dinner with family or friends. Tapas are really good - I especially recommend goat cheese with tomaquet and gambas. Restaurant is open whole day (no siesta) and is always crowded. Beautiful surroundings of St. Marti!

First visit here was for lunch. Salad was fabulous with great care taken over the presentation. So good it was that a couple of days later we returned for dinner. It did not disappoint. Great range of fish dishes, pastas and salads as well as chicken and lamb etc. Icing on the cake was impromptu performance by classical guitarist. What... More

We always visit this restaurant, modestly described as a pizzeria, when we are in the area. It is oustanding for the warmth of its welcome, the excellent menus and the quality of service. A MUST!

Busy place, in the village I want to live in when I get old. Food is always great. Shame it's sometimes too busy

I recently visited l'Esculapi with my family after one year without dining there and one of the things that amazed me the most was the fact that the waitress who served us was able to remember our faces, the table we sat on and some of the topics we talked about back then. I know this is not necessary related... More

We have visited this restaurant already multiple times. The tapas and pizzas are indeed of good quality. Unfortunately, every time when the Boss is not there, the service is close to horrible, as we witnessed this week... This restaurant is worth a visit, especially since St Marti d'Empuries is beautiful, but just make sure the Boss is around ;-)

My wife and I called into the restaurant for lunch last week while on a road trip between Cadaques and Llafranc. We have dined in Sant Marti before but this was our first time in L'Esculapi. We were not disappointed – we ordered a starter and a pizza dish and the food was superb. The service provided by our waitress... More

This is just a fantastic place. Staying in L'Escala, we had a lovely early evening stroll along the beach first. There are a number of restaurants in the square at Sant Marti, all busy and this creates a lovely atmosphere. We had to wait about 25 minutes for a table, but that was not really a problem. We were a... More

Visited twice in two weeks, will be returning again. Fantastic food, Wine and Service. First visit was my birthday meal. A free bottle of Cava arrived. Our waitress V------- and the others were excellent. Second visit even nicer with a very warm welcome. Have been visiting for the last six years. To me the best!!!!!!!!! Love it.

A visit to L'esculapi is a must whenever we're in l'escala. The big decision is always whether to stick with our previous favourites or to try something new. Pizzas are a favourite as are the tapas. The grilled salmon with chargrilled vegetables was a pleasant change, as was the goat's cheese salad. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
