This restaurant has exceptional customer service and delicious food. Highly recommended the chilli prawns, calamari and dessert. The only down fall is it’s a little pricey. But nice to go on special occasions.

Love eating at Esca Grill, staff are very professional, food is always tasty, fresh and delicious. Salmon was great as was the marinara. Can be noisy and costly as you need to order sides so be prepared to spend big!
