Great food

Ate here with a group of friends in May. We sat outside in the beautiful "square" and enjoyed a wide range of local seafood and pizza. The food was all very good and the surroundings very pleasant. I would definitely visit again.

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.

We 2 returned here for the 2nd time and 2 years later, but this time we were a family group of 15, not booked in! We were quickly welcomed in with friendly smiles and orders taken, we were fed some delicious food. Don't miss out on this place. We will return again :)

There are perhaps half a dozen restaurants located beside one another in the main square of St Marti and L'Esculapi is the one we tend to favour most. Although there is an indoor seating area, most people will wish to dine alfresco in the beautiful courtyard setting of St Marti beside the old stone church. Lunchtime at weekends can be... More

We just went for a tapas selection for lunch and were not disappointed. Very attentive service and not rushed despite being a busy time. We will definitely go back to try a "proper" lunch. Beautiful old village and what a view across the bay just 50m away.

We ate here when off-season, it was a little chilly outside but the owners lit their huge gas burners so we could all eat on their canvas covered terrace! Food was excellent and they served an amuse-bouche and plenty of fresh bread and drinks before the food arrived. When we received the final bill, it was very reasonable, will definitely... More

We went there twice during this summer. The first time we were there, we had no reservations, and sat upstairs as we looked longingly at the people sitting at the terrace and thought how nice it would have been to have a table there. There was no view where we sit, I had the sun in my eyes from the... More

The kids had excellent pizzas, which were huge so our 8 and 10 year old could of shared. We also had very good calamari, langoustine and roasted vegetable salad and pasta salad. The portion here are very generous so although these dishes sounded like starters they were plenty for a filling lunch. Great location, but get there early and get... More
