Everything was delicious! Be sure and accept the owner's recommendations on what is fresh and the day's speciality. My daughter is a vegetarian and they made her something special that she refused to share.The place is a little hard to find by car as all of the roads are one way.

We have gone to this restaurant 6 times in our stay in Huatulco. The service is wonderful and the food fabulous. We have tried many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. Tonight I tried the goat cheese salad which was elegantly presented and was excellent. The shrimp with Roquefort /chipotle was absolutely wonderful. My husband had the... More

Others come and go, but L'Echalote is consistently GREAT! It is the best place in Huatulco for beef, whether the Tournedos (a thick, juicy, cooked-to-perfection tenderloin) with Béarnaise sauce or the Medallions with Roquefort-Chipotle sauce, you won't find a better steak in Mexico. And last time I was there, I had a real favourite, the 1st dish I'd ever had... More

I stayed at the adjoining hotel and it was a perfect combination. The owner Thierry is wecoming in multiple languages. If you just want a nice salad order the 'Four Season' salad. The fish is amazing. Oh, and the pasta carbonara...great! If you stay at Thierry's hotel Eden Costa there is no corkage fee. Beto and Alex are very attentive... More

We went twice the food was so good. Try the fish soup with rouille, the fish brochette, and don't miss the chocolate mousse, rich and dark. Best restaurant in Huatulco.

It had been several years since our previous visit to this restaurant and my memory was of a reasonable, but not memorable, Thai meal. So when a friend, who knows the owner-chef quite well, suggested we go there as her guests and said that she would place an advance order for osso buco for the three of us, we readily... More
