Great setting and worth a meal at this Ile-Rousse location!

We stopped there for a dinner recommended by local people. We were welcome by very good service, assign a good table with nice view. They have a great fish menu and we had Tuna that night (freshly fish!) and it was a great meal. The location is well located facing water on one side and terrace... read more

A group of nine enjoyed a very nice lunch here. We ordered salads of varying descriptions. Most of us decided on the lighter meals because we had bee having some overly large meals recently. The meals came out on large elptical plates, quite full. I guess we have to start the diet tomorrow. All agreed the various salads were nice... More

We were looking for a place in Il Rousse to have dinner and watch the sunset on the rocks... We certainly got the best of BOTH worlds... The food, the atmosphere and service were ALL outstanding!!! They even made a special space for Knight (out dog) to be able to sit/lay down. We started with some appetizers to share and... More

Very good food, very well presented, and the service unusually attentive. All in all a very agreeable evening, with complimentary aperitif before the meal, and complimentary digestif after. We went there because we were staying at Hotel L'Escale Sud, which does not serve dinner.

We booked a table for 4. The place was beautiful with view sight. What impressed us was the crowded dining room and the high number of people who came and went. It seeminlgy was the most successful restaurant in the area. We ordered 4 different dishes (Fish soup, Spaghetti fruits de mer, Entrecôte de boeuf, Escalope de veau) and all... More

We ate on a lovely terrace with comfortable furniture and excellent table settings. The service was very efficient and even though the restaurant was full we felt very well taken care of. The food was fresh, well prepared and delicious! The wines local and well chosen. A special treat that we won't forget!

Excellent location with wonderful views from the terrace. We ate here three times and were not disappointed. Very helpful efficient staff. Booking essential if you like to eat after 8pm as it very popular and gets crowded.

Located amongst the many restaurants in the cobblestoned streets of this beautiful town. We were warmly welcomed by the staff as were seated at our table. Our order was taken efficiently by a waiter whose English was better than our French. The food arrived beautifully presented and was delicious. The other waitstaff that also served us were equally friendly and... More

We had a great lunch at l'escale - the owner of the restaurant was extremely friendly and the quality of the food was great ... Lunch was a bit pricey, but the view on the sea comes with a price !?
