Excellent food, service and ambience. From start to finish this was an extremely pleasant experience. Living just an hour's drive away - my wife and I will most certainly visit L'Esacapade des Sens regularly.

Hugely disappointing trip here. We popped in, as we had seen the Channel 4 programme. It was a wholly disappointing meal. We came along with our children and we were made to feel unwelcome. It's a stuffy atmosphere, with pretentious food. After my child was...More

We went for lunch today as a special birthday treat for my husband, we were very disappointed the food whilst looking good was all served like warm/cold. Great shame as we live locally and are always looking for good places to eat.

We thought we would try this restaurant given the large number of excellent reviews and came away disappointed. I went a la carte starting with the pave de foie gras at 14€; must have been the smallest portion of foie gras I have ever experienced...More
