It's true, the location was beautiful. Unfortunately the food was not. I had a bad feeling when at 7:00 P.M. we were the only people in the restaurant when most of the establishments in Grand Case were busy. My Wife had an alfredo dish but the pasta was one big clump. You had to cut it as if you started... More

One of our favorite restaurateur recommended L'escapade. We always look for a new experience when we visit GCBC twice per year. This was an awesome experience. Great food, service, atmosphere in this waterfront location. Owner Jerry and our waitress Rochelle have become dear friends with just one visit. We will always dine here. The Lobster Bisque (with chunks of lobster)... More

We've eaten at most of the restaurants in Gran Case. We've found that the one's on the sea side have the best ambiance, (boats bobbing in the harbor with their lights on and the view of Anguilla at night is nice. These restaurants are generally very good but not as good as the restaurants on the other side of the... More

Pretty view, decent food, terrible service. Skip this Restaurant. Not nearly up to the standard of the other restaurants in Grand Case.

This is a pretty restaurant in Grand Case. Beautiful water views. Food was good - service as well. Lots of smokers in the dishing room however and some people with their dogs. When in Rome!

Sits on the water side so great views if you go early and get a table right by the water. Service was great and the food was delicious...we went for seafood naturally! Got in going early without a reservation on a Saturday night!

We had a larger group and didn't have reservations because we had just gotten to the island. Luckily they had room, and we were lucky they did! The food was outstanding and we would go back.

First of all, this is one of a couple ocean view restaurants in Grand Case and the view is amazing. The food was overall very good in presentation and taste, just based on food give it 4 stars, add in the value drops to 3 or 4 stars at best. Now the bad, as we began to finish up our... More

Had the special shrimp and scallops. Perfectly cooked and accompanying broth was delicious. Excellent and attentive service. Spouse thoroughly enjoyed a generous portion of grilled snapper. Highly recommended.

We had lunch here a few days ago and loved the view. No doubt one of the better locations with the water rolling in feet away from the deck. However, that's unfortunately where the good qualities end. The service wasn't bad, but it wasn't memorable like most of the establishments in Grand Case. The food was also a bit disappointing...
