L'escargot Bleu on Urbanspoon

 

I had the opportunity to try out the cooking at L’Escargot Blue as part of a work related lunch and overall L’Escargot Blue offered a nice and cosy lunch experience.

 

L’Escargot Blue is one of those bistro restaurants you’d expect to find in a quaint French town. The interior walls are plastered with typical rural French paraphernalia (French road signs, antique posters, pictures of old French movie stars, etc). It all sets the scene for the dining experience and helps to transport you away (mentally) to a different time and place.

All the dishes at L’Escargot Blue delivered in taste, but in hindsight I may not have chosen the best dishes. For instance, the snails starter would have been a better choice and I also liked the look of particularly the plat du jour (braised meat). Oh well, you live and learn :)

I didn’t try any of the desserts nor any of the wines at L’Escargot Blue, so I’m not able to comment on any of those aspects. The service is very pleasant and attentive.

 

The overall bill at L’Escargot Blue came to around £30 per person, which is a good price given the level of cooking.

 

Overall rating for L’Escargot Blue: 7/10
