This is a relatively new eatery in Kangaroo Point in an established setting where at least two others have tried before. The Esca team would have to be the best. The family service is good and the food excellent with the steak being almost as good as the best I have eaten - that being at the Red Cat in New York. We have eaten there 4 times since they opened and only have a couple of complaints. On each occasion we have had the Parfait as a shared entrée and it is delicious served in a very nice container along with two small slices of toast which were not really enough to handle the very healthy serving of pate for one person let a lone two. On the second and third times we had this entree we asked for a couple of additional pieces of toast and this was delivered at no extra cost. On our most recent visit we again asked for some extra toast and we were presented with 4 extra pieces the sting in the tail this time was that we were charged an extra $5!!!!! which makes the $17 entree now a $22 entree which is a bit over the top for an extra 4 small slices of toast. The only other issue is the corkage charge for the first 3 visits the corkage charge was $8 a bottle the last time it was $10 I wonder what it will be next time we visit???? and we will.
