This family owned bar and restaurant lies just off the main road, which runs through the village of Colomars, a pleasant drive up a twisting scenic route about half an hour’s drive north from Nice. Christina and Christophe Jourdan run the restaurant and kitchen respectively, her parents the adjacent bar (assisted by affectionate cat!). We were there as what passes... More

L'Escapade offers you an excellent diner/lunch! Very tasty plates with perfect choice of wine. They present very good hospitality and service. This is not only a very cosy place to be but also really great view on the valley of Nice. Possible to have dinner inside the Restaurant but also on the terrace. Excellent price/quality combination. It is absolute worthwhile... More

This a hidden almost secret place in the neighbourhood of Ch. Bellet. It does not seem to be anything else than a little restaurant in a remote part of Provence. Service work reasonably well. They kept open just for us. They did not serve many dishes since lunch was over. What was left was maybe the best duck I have... More

This small restaurant had excellent food, an incredible view, and a friendly staff that helped answer all of our questions. A gentleman at the Chateau de Bellet winery suggested this restaurant to us, and we were not disappointed. There was an interesting selection and a variety of food. This was our favorite restaurant on our two week driving tour of... More

I had been planning to visit here soon after we moved to france based on TripAdvisor reviews but foolishly never did until last week, what an opportunity missed. We went as a four to eat dinner here and I have to say that in terms of food, service, price and location L'Escapade really does tick the boxes. This really is... More

A great little gem in this little village not far from Nice. Food was good. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and great with our younger guest. The views over the valley were great. Would recommend to anyone who is staying close to Colomars to try this place out.

Overall an alright meal but rather expensive for what it was. Either needs to up its game quality-wise or drop the prices. Try and get a table on the terrace rather than under the shade (unless its the middle of the day and the sun is blaring) as its a little damp an insect-y! Staff were really nice and service... More
