L'Escale was founded 1987 and is an idyllic boathouse/storehouse in the harbor of Nauvo. The name L'Escale comes from the French language and mean stopover or place by the sea. The restaurant has had the same style since it was founded, arcipelago inspired with a touch of the French kitchen. The restaurant is known for it's good food and wide wine collection.

It is difficult to convey the right atmosphere during the different seasons.

During a beautiful summer day there can be hundreds of boats situated near the terasses of L'Escale. During winter the fireplaces bring warmth and a relaxed mood indoors.

A picture can say more than a thousand words,
