Slow service was disappointing but this seems the norm in these parts. Prawn pasta dish was nice, not too many prawns unfortunately. Ham/cheese pasta could of looked better but was OK- can't really complain there was too much ham & parmesan. Nothing special overall.

This must be the best restaurant in Ile-Rousse..... We had a wonderful dinner, sitting at a table with view of the bay.

For those who want to go where both the locals and the tourists go, turn to l'Escale and the bar at l'Escale Sud! Both are owned by the Ferrandini family and they are usually fully deployed, behind the bar, seating customers to the tables, and bringing out large plates of delicious food. The principal restaurant, l'Escale, is open year-round and,... More

My last evening in Ile Rousse was spent dining at this family establishment with a very long history. No surprise here. One doesn't survive unless you are doing something right. We had a table with a beautiful sea view. Everything we ordered was delectable and the lovely server had a good command of English.

We stopped here on a sweltering hot day. No a/c however an occasional breeze. Best mussels we have ever had, with cream sauce poured all over and crisp fries. Nice shrimp tapas as well. Cold. Beer. We come here time and time again and are not disappointed.

We had a romantic meal for two on the beach however things didn't start well when the waiter managed to throw my drink over me ! He was very apologetic and anyone can have a mishap however you would expect management to knock something off the bill ! The food was good but a bit over prized. We think that... More

The ambience of L'escale is very good and the menu should have something for everone. The food was very good, but if you go at lunchtime make sure you're sitting in direct shade as it got very hot.

Six of us had a table overlooking the sea which was sublime. The food was delicious. I had mussels royale which included various other items of seafood, it looked amazing and tasted equally amazing. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Highly recommend.
