Mussels, crepes, cider, even changed sauce on a chicken dish to peppercorn nothing to much trouble, Very busy with locals right on the harbour but not just for the tourists. Loved it will go again.

Great local crepes... Wanted to go to another crepe shop, but a combination of bad weather, difficult car park made us chose l'Escale for lunch. Great location, easy car park and view on the port of Paimpol. Friendly service and helpful staff.

My wife and I went here because we wanted mussels and were not dissapointed. I had them in a Roquefort sauce and my wife had a carbonara sauce and both were wonderful. They were quite small but a very large quantity and fantastic quality. We also had the house white wine which was very good. Despite the fact they were busy the service was very good.

We have been to this restaurant before, and have always enjoyed the ambience. We had always sat outside on the terrace before,with beautul views across the harbour, but this time as it was not exactly warm we sat inside.
The difference between the terrace and the interior is remarkable, rather like a swan, swinging on the seurface of the water, the terrace is like the swan driftiting down the river all serene and calm, but the intererior is like the feet of the swan...paddling away frantically underneath the water, as everyone running around, but it was very organised chaos. We thought the service was great, friendly, light hearted, and fun. my husband chose the frilled salmon with rice and I chose moules a la creme....(he ate my frites). As usual we both had ice creams, but the selection of desserts were very very tempting.....a really lovely lunch, thank you to all including the unseen kitchen staff.

We've all been victims of the 'screw the tourist' mentality in holiday resorts - they're only passing through and you'll never see them again so serve them inferior rubbish and they'll eat up, shut up and pay up.Thankfully, due to sites like this things have improved considerably, but last week in L'Escale Restaurant in Paimpol we had the worst possible example of appallingly bad food served by the rudest staff I've ever met - anywhere. If there is such a place as a University of Obnoxiousness these people must be honours graduates and the proprietor must have been top of the class. In short - maybe you should try elsewhere!!
