Visited in July. Sat in the front area so as to observe French life on the paved area outside. This is a restaurant, not a cafe, so do expect to pay a bit more for your food. Had a delicious rack of lamb, with French...More

We had a lunch in L'escargot in March 2016. The restaurant is a brasserie type with a large menu. Highlights in my opinion are the seafood, with good oysters and a melting "sole meunière". Dishes vary in prices but the quality is always there. Save...More

The restaurant has a traditional iconic style of french restaurant. Great escargots, nice raw meat, and good red wine. High quality food and a great atmosphere to enjoy.More

Visited here for a quick lunch with my family. Lovely atmosphere and friendly service - food was a bit bland. The muscles could have done with a tastier sauce. Lovely location, I would come back here, I would just order a different dish!More
