L' Escapade

RW: Thirty years ago, it was Créole shack on the beach in a sleepy fishing village. Today it is a smart restaurant serving fine French cuisine with an accent on fish, including fresh Caribbean lobster from the tank, but it is still on the beach.


The menu at L'Escapade is dominated by Caribbean lobster and other fresh seafood, but at its heart, this restaurant is a French establishment. This is especially evident in the desserts, which include souffles and suzettes.

L' Escapade is a grill where they proudly serve their take on French cuisine. One can expect the setting and food here to be informal. When's the best time to come? They're open for both dinner and lunch, so give it a try.


The view from this restaurant is as impressive as the menu. As the sun sets, look out across the water and you'll see Anguilla in the distance.
