We stumbled across this place for lunch because we were attracted to the location as it overlooks the beach. We were pleasantly surprised when the entree we ordered to share which was the calamari (suggested to us by our waitress) came out. It was huge! And so beautifully cooked and fresh. It was listed in entrees but it could have... More

This restaurant has one of the best positions in the town with great views from several tables over the bay - very pretty. The food is well presented, efficiently serves and good value. The local chestnut dessert was light and very good.

Excellent seafood restaurant. Varied selection on the menu. Staff friendly and helpful. Ask for a table on the terrace - good views across the sea.

We were seated at a table with a great view and the food was very good. My husband had the fish & shellfish stew and I had the pasta. A little higher priced than most, but was worth the experience.

This restaurant has a section where you have a great view on the sea. They serve American portions of seafood platter (not fried). Usually French restaurant serve really puny portions. It is not the case here. The owner often comes around at the end and give you a complimentary after dinner drink.

L'escale used to be a must-visit on our annual holiday to Corsica, so we returned with confidence this year. I noticed the upgraded furniture and installation of a permanent roof over the terrace, where there used to be umbrellas but thought nothing of it. After a lenghty wait for our starters to arrive, I had to complain about the small,cold,... More

Just back from a week in Corsica and stopped off for lunch (twice) at this wonderful restaurant. It has the most fabulous view of the bay at Ile Rousse, when sitting on the very large terrace. The staff are very helpful and certainly know what they're talking about when describing and recommending various dishes. The moules frites are delicious as... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals and this was good advice. We have had here a very pleasant meal. On the plus side, the service was good (quite rare in Corsica for non-Corsican), meals decently priced, and the food was tasty. There are several decently priced menu on offer, well worth trying. The terrace is very nice, although... More

L'Escale in Ile Rousse has had a make over done over the past year or so (winter 2011/2012). The entire restaurant was very tastefully re-decorated and is a nice place to have lunch or dinner. Lunch is great because the views of the turquoise sea are simply stunning but dinner is also very nice and quiet. The food in L'Escale... More

We ordered the charcuterie to start and the prawns (which turned out to be cray fish). The service was average, poor at times. We were not offered the choice of specials, one of which was lobster. A 30 euro dish but looked and smelled delicious. The mixed seafood platter was a recommendation, however was very bland, no flavour of the... More
