Square Meal Review of L’Escargot Bleu ?

As chef/patron of cheery blue-fronted L’Escargot Bleu, Fred Berkmiller is immensely proud of his French heritage – in fact, you can almost imagine him cycling down the Royal Mile draped in a string of onions and whistling Le Marseillaise.

Cheeses come from legendary Hervé Mons and the wine list is totally patriotic too.
