Lots of people screw their noses up at the mention of eating snails BUT ... once my friends tried the salt and pepper snails at Cafe Escargot they changed their thinking and are now converted . The meals are beautiful and the hosts are fantastic looking after your every request . They explain all the dishes and you don't have to just have snails ( although you would be crazy not to at least share a plate as e'ntre ) I thoroughly reckonend Cafe Escagot

Went with a big group one night to this place and they pretty much opened up for us. Great selection of food, not just escargot although they are a main feature of the menu. Great vegetarian selection and done really well! Really great information aswell on the production of escargot!

My partner and I travelled to Mirboo North for something different, to have dinner. We initially planned to go to the Brewery but they were closed. We'd seen Cafe Escargot's signs pointing out of Mirboo north, only 5 minutes away and thought we'd check it out.
So we made our way, and we must say it was a blessing the pub was shut and we found this place!
We were warmly greeted and shown our seats. It felt like we were visiting our parents in their warm inviting space. Atmosphere wonderful!

Service was fantastic! Our waiter introduced himself, and his menu and offered us drinks while we decided on what we'd like to eat.
With their extensive menu it did take us awhile to decide on what meals to have! We didn't have snails, though I must get the courage to try them next time we go! Reasonably priced meals and drinks, we left with our bill being under $100, but with big smiles for the fantastic service and evening we had!
Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to go somewhere a lot nicer than the pub!

We visited Escargot on our summer holidays from Sandy Point. The menu is varied and there are heaps of options for everyone. We didn't try the escargot, but instead opted for a variety of small dishes to share. They were all amazing- garlic prawns, meatballs, Nona's juicy peas, broad bean bruscetta, arancini, squid.. excellent. The chef Vincenza came out to introduce herself and welcome us to the restaurant.
We enjoyed a bottle of local Rose wine and finished off our meal with 4 desserts.. Vincenza's specialty dessert is a definite must try.
Highly recommended.

Arrived late at 3pm but owners and waitress very accommodating
Food was fantastic no complaints from us.
Desserts were home made and very affordable a rarity in a lot of cafes and restaurants these days.
Will definitely be back with the kids so baton down the hatches!
Thank you.
