Being fortunate to travel to St Tropez for work, my boss and I stopped by L'Escale one evening for drinks and fell in love with the restaurant. Located along the port, this restaurant is so beautiful and the perfect spot to stop for lunch or dinner, or to even grab a drink. The floor of the restaurant is all soft sand and the decor all white and silver. Not to mention, everyone who works here is gorgeous! Although we did not eat dinner, we wished we would have stayed to eat. We had a great time, though and can't wait to make it back!

We were recommended to go here on our trip to St Tropez. It is a really classy place and from the clientele that walk in it becomes pretty obvious.

The floor has beautiful white sand covering the entirety and it looks quite beautiful.

The staff are really professional and we were well and truly made to feel welcome.

The wine list an a la carte menu was quite impressive.

We had a main course each, two salads and two bottles of wine (we are Aussies!) and that cost 237 Euros ($300 Australian) for just 2 people. The fish we ordered (Sea Bass) was brought to our table prior to cooking for our approval.

It was delicious by every measure. Presentation was great.

One of the highlights is to sit and watch mega yachts and cruisers come and go. It is quite shameless.

I am glad we went if only just to experience it.

In summary, it is a very classy place and you are certainly made to feel welcome but there again you pay for it.

Enjoy.

It's not the food you come for though the fare is more than decent. The appeal here is the location and the atmosphere. The open-air dining room and great music make for a great setting to sip rose and wriggle your toes in the beach sand that covers the floor. Keeping it simple is probably the best course on navigating the food side. Seared tuna with vegetables was a hit while the more elaborate crab, avocado and grapefruit salad was less so. Service was also pretty spotty but as long as you're not in a hurry, no big deal. Bring your wallet, it's not a cheap night out.
