I thought that it’ll probably just be a wee bit poo… crummy, maybe? Sort-of-typical airport super-rubbish fast-food. Au contraire. L’Escale is a quite-lovely white painted building constructed in the Art Deco style, angles and curves in delicate harmony, white-painted handrails either side of the staircase which lead up to the upper terrace on the roof on the first floor, and...

L’Escale restaurant, Le Touquet L’Escale is one of Le Touquet’s oldest restaurants and was always a place to visit when I used to work in this attractive part of Nord Pas de Calais. A change of management seven years ago has introduced a most attractive restaurant with excellent food, wines and service retaining its aeronautical theme befitting its location at... More

Piping hot, great flavour, good service! Maintaining the high standards it has for years. Not sure why it's not higher up the ratings....

Most of the restaurants next to the airports are small and dilapidated, this one is indeed one of the rare exceptions. It is very nice to sit here with nicely prepared food and drinks. Great to enjoy the sun and the breeze outside.

This restaurant has so much style! It is tucked away with its own privacy in a quiet corner of Le Touquet airport - but has an atmosphere all of its own. You can sit outside and watch the small planes come and go, or be tucked away with no concept of being at an airport. The decorations are chic and... More

Fantastic, freshly prepared food, with the inventive menu changing daily and warm welcome from the chef, his wife and the entire team. A gem in the otherwise rather dreary culinary landscape of Le Touquet where so many places are tourist traps. While out of the center, the restaurant is a historical landmark from the Touquet's heydays in the 20s. As... More

We have been visiting this restaurant sporadically for about 30 years. A lot has changed there during that time but the food has been consistent. I have never had a bad meal and mostly it has been outstanding. People raise their eyebrows when I tell them I go to a restaurant at an airport - especially when there is so... More

despite being away from city center (better use a bike to come), l'Escale is a good surprise. Food is great and menu of the day is bringing the vatiety lacking on the main Menu. Service can be a bit long when the restaurant is crowdy.

We ignored the fact that this restaurant was right next to an airfield and went off the reviews of other members... we are so happy we did as this was our best meal of our Northern France getaway and being next to an airfield is what makes it fun for the kiddies... The restaurant is large and has a large... More

Last visited L'Esclae 24 years ago. A lot has changed but the food was just as good and reasonably priced. Service was good too!
