“Tired of pizzas, pastas and strange french sauces?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Go to the Escapade au Portugal. It is located near the market (aux Halles). Have a nice dinner, choose a plate of codfish (morue) à Maria, or grilled. Ask while you wait, for an entrance of pastéis de bacalhau, she fries some for you, and drink a good portuguese red wine. For dessert ask for pastéis de nata. And relax and enjoy your meal while you leasten to the voice of Amalia singing Fado, and the company and hospitality of the owner Mme. Bourgault, that the french customers call by her name Maria. Au revoir Maria, nice time, nice dinner.
