“Good food, nice atmosphere, but service could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We took dinner at the restaurant by the harbour. The views are great and the location is right at the center of everything, still quite peaceful. My boyfriend tried hamburger and I took a steak, both very delicious, not to mention the desserts too...yum. The food came suprisingly quickly if you think that the house was full of people.

Would have given 5 points, if only the waitress(es) would not have first forgotton to bring us the ordered drink and the cutlery, then totally forgot to come and ask for the dessert orders after bringing us the dessert menu and later we also had to wait quite a while to see a waitress near enough to wave her for attention to bring us a bill. Not the kind of behaviour you would expect for a fancy restaurant...

“nice scenery - overrated desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Beautiful scenery and good food. Chocolate dessert overpriced, grab your dessert from the ice cream kiosk and enjoy it on the boardwalk ;)

“Good service at marina restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Visited the restaurant for the second time on 7th August 2012. Even if sitting at a table in the bistro section was offered the A´la Carte menu. Had perch fillets with a chantarell sauce for 28e.
The perch was butterfried -fresh and exellent. Accompanied by Aura beer and a Sandel Schnaps. Exellent choise. The service was good and efficient. This is a very good restaurant in the Finnish Archipelago situated at the local marina in the island of Nagu. Not cheap however prices reflect good quality of food. Can be recommended.

“Best in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

Whether it's food, location, or value, L'Escale was the tops. Clean with a very full atmosphere, the food was very tasty and the prices reasonable. We had fish stew, steak, meatballs, and steak on toast, plus their version of a Cobb salad. The bread/butter ala Sweden was amazing. Thus, the croutons in the salad were also memorable! Tender and tasty! Everything else was well cooked and we left very happy.

It's in the center of town so you can have a nice walk around after you are finished with your meal.

“Great Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

After wandering around Nagu marina for an hour on a fairly busy Saturday, we stopped here, in the more casual part of the restaurant, for escargot, goat cheese salad, and huge cheeseburgers and fries. Everything was really excellent. Most people were having the archipelago buffet of salads and fish. They all looked happy and kept going back for more. But sometimes you just need a burger and fries. This is a good place to indulge yourself. I think they also have a more formal dining room for evening meals. The menu had interesting selections, including items for children. The food is a combination of Finnish and other cuisines.
