“Great view but average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The view at sunset is amazing. The food, was just average and the portions were small. The best things on the menu were the lobster ravioli and the cream brullee is to die for.

“Good food and right on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We walked down the main drag of Grand Case and picked this restaurant because of its location (on the water side of the street), its charm and nice menu. While it was pricey, the food was good. You also get a bit of a break if you pay in USD cash...they give you an even exchange rate with the Euro.

“Another excellent French restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The main street of Grand Case is a treasure trove of fine dining, and L'Escapade is among the best of them. The menu and the quality of the dishes compare favorably with some of our best experiences in France, and there is seating available right on the ocean.

By the way, the prices there are all given in euros but as of 2/13 the restaurant offered to accept $1 = Euro 1 if the bill is paid in cash.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We stumbled upon L'Escapade in Grand Case and had a great meal. The food was so good that we went back a second time! Their wine list has all very good wines in all price ranges and the exchange rate was $1 = 1E when paying cash!
