Still the best for French food in Huatulco

I had shrimp (and got 7 large ones) with saffron sauce (Mexican sauce also available) and it came with delicious noodles too. my husband loved his rabbit in red wine sauce. Both were excellent and inexpensive for what we got. ($37 USD including 2 glasses of red wine). Best so far in Huatulco this... read more

L'échalote is a hidden gem in the heart of Bahia Chahué in Huatulco, Mexico. The restaurant serves international cuisine and has a wonderful menu. The service is extremely good(top notch). The ambiance is quaint and quiet. Thierry, the owner was gracious and interesting to talk with. You can see that he really enjoys being a restauranteur. We started with Escargots... More

Starters were okay not great and mains much better with dessert being just okay (nothing fantastic). Servers were very attentive and setting was very nice. The service was a little slow but that is made clear on the menu that some things may take more time. My salad was very liquid and just mediocre on taste and my partner's carpaccio... More

After nearly a week of mariscos, moles, and tortillas, L'Echalote was a great option. They have a very worldly menu in relation to any of the places we went to in Huatulco. My wife and I took our time, ordering each meal at a time, and just spending our last night there. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anybody... More

Beautiful setting, great service and delicious food. We had the broccoli soup, the four seasons salad and spaghetti. All were great. my friend and I shared the salad and they kindly out it on separate plates for us. We have eaten here in the past and it never disappoints.

I really did love this quiet place. It was clean and quiet. The waiter was extremely polite. I had grouper with a light leek cream. It was delicious. I really wanted to give it 5*, but the dessert was bad. I got the eclair with mango cream and kiwi sauce. It ended up to be individual little cream puffs that... More

This was our first night at the beach and selected this restaurant from the reviews here and being a short walk from our hotel. We could not have selected a better choice. Terry, I assume was the owner, was most gracious, greeted us and seated us promptly. He did offer an apology that dinner might be delayed by 20 minutes... More
