Just a few minutes off the beaten track sits a small building twinkling in warm yellow light, begging for a visit. Upon entering, this quaint little restaurant exudes romance and intimacy. This is not to suggest that L'Escargot is exclusively for romantics or couples, on the contrary. You'll find all types of gatherings in the dining area of L'Escargot, from... More

On a dismal, dark wintry Sunday evening in Cambrai, there is possibly only one place to go - and that is L'Escargot! Brightly lit, on a corner, it was empty on our arrival, but quickly filled with locals who clearly knew the restaurant. The owner/maitre'd was charming and spoke very good English. The wine list was good and very reasonable... More

Cambrai, 3rd Jan, -4 degrees, sunny and windy, mainly empty and getting back to work - a warm welcome and decent food was needed fast. Thank you l'Escargot for that great welcome and total understanding about our dietary preferences. The baked Cabillaud (Cod) on veg and the simple but superb goats cheese salad (+chips) were just the ticket. Back we... More

This is a very tricky report to write, as I would need to rate food, service, price level and atmosphere separately, to do it justice.we visited as a family. Food was great and didnt take too long. We had lovely steaks an duck, a beautiful vegetable terrine and pommes gratinees. Our waiter, the proprietor, I believe, helped us translating the... More

this is a popular restaurant in the city centre. The staff were most welcoming. The food was of variable quality - not sure we would have the "Welsh Maison" - basically melted cheese, again! Nice deserts though.

We stumbled across this restaurant on a Sunday evening. We were the only people in for the first half hour. Our host was very good. We are staying away out of town. He tried to book us a taxi without success but kindly dropped us off. Snails excellent. We chose the meal of the day 27 euro for 3 courses.... More

Situated just above the town square this restaurant offers some of the best choices of cuisine in Cambrai. Very friendly staff and really good and well cooked food. Not cheap, but you will really enjoy what you get and the ambience is great too.

I called there with friends, not for the first time have I been to this restaurant. It is a little more expensive perhaps, but the service is good with the owner speaking good English. The Staff a little less! The menu is impressive as is the wine list. We had some good food and an excellent Bordeaux 2011 to assist... More

L'Escargot is a small restaurant close to the Grand Place in Cambrai. We booked in advance it being a Saturday evening but in the event it was not necessary. We chose the 38 Euro menu and started with a plate of 12 l'escargot (what else?). My wife followed this with Beef tournedos which was excellently cooked whilst I had a... More
