Do not eat here. The staff is racist, dishonest, and unprofessional (not all these go hand-in-hand). We were seated but we could not sit inside or in the covered outside area, which we were told were reserved. We were only provided seats on the street. We ordered tap water and they said, 'Today we do not have tap water, only... More

We have just returned to our hotel having eaten at this restaurant. Found it by chance and saw the good reviews here so thought we would try it. We were not disappointed. The starter of ham, salami and burrata was delicious. We had sea bass and tagliatelle carbonara for main course and cheesecake and creme brulee for pudding. This was... More

We were a group of 4 in a cold and semi-deserted january night in Monaco, but we had an excellent dinner at L'escale. Differently from many places in Monaco, at L'escale it is the quality and genuinity of the food that makes the difference. The service was quick and super-polite, while the final price was definitely fair for the location... More

Right at the yacht harbour you find this ship inspired restaurant with well prepared Italian food and unusually friendly staff. We had , since we were four, risotto, gnocchi and pizza and all of us were pleased. The desserts that followed were better than in many places, especially the cheese cake, very innovative. Coffee was also excellent. The little chocolate... More

Our favourite restaurant in Monte-Carlo, reasonably priced, fresh food, well presented in sensible sized portions and excellent service. The mixed platter of cold meats/salamis and burrata was a brilliant starter.

I hate to say the gnocchi with shrimp was the most elegant, elevated mac & (gnocchi) cheese I have ever had, but I don't know how else to explain it. It was delicioso. So good. We had the foie gras to start as well as some pizza. The food and service was very good. There was a nice outside eating... More

Both dishes were delicious and I would definitely... More

We've been in L'Escale with all the family and we can strongly recommend it: fresh, tasty food and professional staff for reasonable cost. It was pleasure to be there. If we come back to Monaco we will surely eat there once again.

nice italian food for a reasonable price if we keep in mind that we are in Monaco. we had to order at least three dishes for the four of us because the place has a minimum. we were traveling with two kids and 3 pizzas was too much food for us. anyway, we understood that because it wasn't that expensive...
