Escabeche is a wonderful restaurant with beautiful views of the street and park across the street. Especially after a light snowfall. The food was great at dinner and at breakfast. Especially if Kafil is serving you.

My husband and I stayed at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagara-On-The-Lake on Jan 9-11. We had breakfast at the Escabeche Restaurant twice and it was excellent. Both servers that we had, Lily and Grace were outstanding. Both were gracious, well informed about menu items and most of all seemed genuinely pleased to provide a fantastic breakfast experience.

We were here in the summer for luncheon before heading over to the Shaw. The food was delicious and the portions were substantial. However, the service was somewhat disappointing. For the quality and atmosphere of the hotel and restaurant area in general, I would have thought that more servers would have been on staff. Don't get me wrong - our... More

Our experiences with Escabeche left much to be desired. During breakfast we were seated in a corner and then ignored for quarter of an hour while people who arrived later than us were serviced. It was only after an elderly gentleman at the next table complained that we were attended to. My daughter's food was served before mine, and then... More

We dined here recently (before Christmas) and had an acceptable dinner which certainly didn't shine. While the Beef Tenderloin was "exceptional', I regret to say that the Provence Chicken was rather dry and humdrum. The salad greens were fresh and delicious with a perfect beetroot vinaigrette and the risotto appetizer was quite tasty. The crème brulée, I must admit, was... More

We just recently returned from an overnighter to Niagara on the lake from our stay at the Prince of Wales Vintage Hotel. The experience was amazing. We had a very tranquil stay with dinner in the Churchill Lounge by the fire and breakfast in the Escabeche Restaurant served by Kafil. Kafil made our breakfast experience very delightful and the food.....mouth... More

My wife and I often have dinner at Escabeche. The restaurant is very elegant and romantic as always. The menu is very Farm to Table with unique offerings. We had soup and grilled quail as an appetizer. The chowder was little thin and spilt but tasty. Grilled quail was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and tender inside. Seasoning was just... More

My husband and I had a fabulous meal; we had arctic char- cooked to order, as an entree. As appetizers, my husband had smoked trout rillettes and I had the mushroom soup. Both were excellent. For dessert, I had the best ever bourbon creme brulee and my husband had salted caramel cheesecake. The food was divine! Daniel was our server.... More
