Unfortunately we where a bit late to eat at the restaurants next door, so we ended up at L'Escale. We ordered paella and red wine. The wine was good, but the paella was terrible. The fish was overcooked and dry, and it was served with...More

Had moules a la creme and fries, tiny mussels. But otherwise quality just average. Burger was okay...average. Location excellent overlooking marina. Staff and service good. Friendly and efficient. Prices average. Sunshine helped. But this is just your average tourist restaurant. Nothing to encourage or discourage....More

Overpriced and unfriendly staff. Charged 11 euros for a cognac whilst only paying 8 euros a few doors away for a much better quality. Manager/owner and staff not at all interested in listening to complaint

I wouldn't normally be attracted to a PMU (betting shop), however L'Escale is also a restaurant which caught my eye with an attractive and sensibly priced menu. There is a restaurant close by offering a seafood platter for 118€! We had the best moules et...More

Sitting at the harbor is nice, of course. But the food was mediocre and the service unorganized, inattentive and slow. Sorry, you ruined my Friday night dinner.
