"Les français ne mange que des escargots" is how you would say that. "Ne ... que" means "only" or "nothing but".
Read the sentence carefully and you'll see it says "ne mange pas que" which reverse the meaning... they "don't only eat escargot". This sentence is appearently a response to someone with a some pretty narrow ideas about French food.
