In its simplest form, Esca means food. And, that’s the foundation of our philosophy, down here at Holdfast Shores. Surrounded by stunning beachfront views and sparkling Marina waters, we work hard to bring the tasty, simple flavours of home-style southern European cooking to your table. Of course, these dishes are always coupled with the unpretentious, wholesome and humble service you’d expect. Easy. Simple. Esca.

​Family is important to us – proprietors , George Alexopoulos and Michael Salerno will welcome you into Esca just like they’ve been taught by their European mamas: with a smile, an open door, and plenty to eat and drink. Feel like sharing? Our small-style dishes encourage communal dining, bringing families and friends together to eat and enjoy. Naturally, we’ll always make sure you never leave hungry!

Whether it's your choice to dine al fresco with sparkling Marina views or absolute beach-front dining in front of a roaring fireplace, Esca is a spacious and welcoming establishment. With adaptable function spaces, ESCA can cater for a variety of occasions. Please note that bookings intended for 12 guests or more are best suited.
