“Epicure delight”
Reviewed April 21, 2010

Spent over a month in the Bahia Chahue area enjoying the local food so it was wonderful to expose my palate to the diverse menu of L'Echalote. Visit the local a couple of times to experience the creativity of the Chef & was impressed everytime!! Will be back!

Both my wife and myself elect to stay at Posada Eden Costa (Home of L'Echalote Restaurant.) We have been coming to Huatulco with friends for a long time and have always enjoyed the food and family atmosphere. I ordered something that was not on the menu last night and my fish was done to perfection. WOW does not come even close.
The personal pride and dedication that Thierry , Tina and all the staff have reflects on every meal. Its a very personal thing that is sometimes left behind in the service industry. Please remember that every meal i meal is individually prepared so RELAX AND ENJOY
