Have visited a few times during the past winter and never been disappointed. Great friendly service, a super menu with a lot of choice and good value. We've ordered various dishes including pizza, pasta, fish, salads, meat and it's always been great.

One of the best pizza and the grande bier is cold and lovely. Family run and friendly. Always good for rugby fans with the owner always keen to have french and six nation games on. Wonderful.

Welcome to l'Escale. We are located at the bottom of the ski piste, 100 m from the rail station, 200 m from the telecabine, close to the big parking spot of Barboleuse, the bakery and the all other facilities. We have a beautiful terrasse and our menu covers international cuisine, with a touch of originality but always prepared with fresh products. Tex mex, large fresh salads, asian plates and vegetarian dishes, as well as local cuisine. Our pizzas are cooked in an old stone owen.
Good mood, friendly atmosphere and smily faces!
