This place is one of the better restaurants in hawkesbury. In itself that's not saying much but truthfully this restaurant has a lot going for it. The food is good. We've had pizza there a few times and it's outstanding in that you are full when you eat it. It's loaded with toppings and the crust is great. The fish... More

Nice setting and food quite good but the service is awful. We waited more than 20 minutes for our entree. We ordered onion rings as an appetizer but they only came with our entree. My friend ordered coffee but she never got it.

Shout to our server Chantal, for her friendly and good service. The restaurant is very clean, spacious, great out side view of the lake also there is a beautiful sunset view from the patio. We enjoyed amazing Sangria, Greek salad along with Alfredo Fettuccini n garlic bread. They serve large portions so beware.

Located in Hawkesbury, with a view of the Ottawa River and large terrace, this is a popular place. The menu is extensive for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Don't expect 5-star dining but do expect value for your money. The breakfast menu has omelets skillets and healthy choices plus the regular breakfast items. Meals are Canadian, Italian and Greek fare. Portions... More

We went to L'Escale for brunch. From the time we sat down to the time our food arrived, one hour went by. The service was lousy. The waitress kept rushing past us as we tried to place our order. That should have been a clue that good service was not a priority! We sat on the patio, overlooking the Ottawa... More
