Located on the pier, the restaurant offers great water views and fancy white linen service. A good place for lunch if you are visiting Glenelg and want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Jetty Road - the main drag. Overall the food...More

My family and I visited to celebrate a birthday. All of our meals were delicious and nicely presented. Service was really good - our waitress was very attentive. The atmosphere was very nice and quite 'calming' I think is the best word to describe it!

Excellent food and wine selection. It's just a shame they don't open up the sea view dining section for breakfast.

Went to Esca as part of a large business group dinner (~200 people). Very impressed with their ability to keep the service high and the food quality superb. I had the Scotch fillet (which is also a regular menu item). It was excellent!
