At the heart of the capital of the Cotentin marshes, you can discover traditional French cuisine. Food is very tasty! Restaurant itself by the atmosphere not the best - made kind of gold feeling.

This is by far the best meal I have ever experienced.... every meal was just unbelievable - like ten dishes/tastes on one plate. This place deserves a Michelin star or couple..... and the deserts - just no words. Need to try it to believe!!!

Absolutely delicious dinner. The restaurant was small but very nice. Our waitress was charming as was her coworker. But it was the food that took center stage. I would highly recommend this restaurant and if you are going for dinner I would suggest a reservation.

An absolutely wonderful restaurant that is worth travelling miles for as a destination alone. The chef (and I assume owner) could not have been more helpful and accommodating despite varying dietary preferences and clearly top class complex cooking. The food is without doubt one of...More

My husband, stepdaughter and I visited the Normandy region of France May 24-26th. Our Airbnb host in Carentan recommended L'Escale des Sens and it turned out to be possibly the best meal we had in all of France, in terms of taste, presentation and price!
