L'Esculapi was recommended to us as a good family restaurant. We were disappointed however. We tried unsuccessfully to make a reservation on the morning of our visit. That evening our family of six were accommodated upstairs which was somewhat lacking in atmosphere. Some of the tapas we ordered for starters never arrived. Taste wise they were very average. The main... More

Fish not cleaned and cooked properly and the waiting staff are unpleasant if You complain when it's their mistake. The square is lovely but very busy at times. I found a much better restaurant directly facing and that place is perfect.

Always crowed in the evenings, waiting for 20 mins. Good food and everything ok. Very flexible and you are not waiting long for the dishes.

We had a very nice dinner here, reasonably priced and good vibe about the place. Gets busy at peak times so either book or get there early. Staff could be a bit friendlier but service was good.

After a number of visits to this restaurant in the last several years, we returned to eat their delicious pizzas with a fresh salad and good red wine. Unfortunately, for the first time, we were very disappointed. The service was very slow and the pizza was not nearly as good as the other times: not the usual toppings and the... More

The food was OK but we did not have our meals at the same time - one person got the food when the rest had finished their food. We got two dishes that we have not ordred (eg meat lasagne instead of veg. lasagne)
