We ate here on the recommendation of others. What an elegant restaurant! Service was extremely good and we were not rushed all night. There was an excellent variety of choices on the menu which made it extremely hard to chose. My highlight was the raspberry souffle....spectacularly light and yummy! Little touches like an amuse bouche enhanced the experience. Wonderful and would highly recommend.

To Eliza and Richard who are great hosts providing wonderful food that has remained consistent over the many years we have been dining with them. A piece of quiet indulgence with the joy of looking at the art work done by Eliza is worth going back for time and again.

We met up with my husband's sister and brother in law from Canberra at Eschalot in Berrima as the half way meeting place for a Christmas lunch celebration yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed the meals. The food was excellent and the wait staff very courteous and attentive.

Our entrees of terrine of spatchcock or carrot cannelloni were beautifully presented and delicious. Our mains of either barramundi and crab cake or pork (because they had run out of the barramundi and crab cake) were very good. My lemon and lime soufflé was absolutely superb and the rest of our party enjoyed a variety of desserts which they enjoyed too.

My only disappointment was that on our arrival we were told we could have either a la carte or the set menu but had to decide on the spot at the front desk. This was disconcerting as we had been driving 2 hours to get there and it was in front of our guests. Unfortunately on the spot we choose the set menu but ended up in the back room with no table cloth and no outlook. We extended this menu considerably with sides, a la carte desserts and a bottle of wine. If I had known that the seating for a la carte was in the front rooms with table clothes and a better outlook we would not have hesitated to select that option. I just wish we had been fully informed when we booked about the options and made aware of the difference in the table settings and rooms. We were not looking for a budget experience and we ended up happily going way beyond the set menu option because the food was so good.

Eschalot has to be one of the best restaurants in this region. The menu is really interesting and the food and wine list excellent. The food is delicious and the presentation is exquisite, plus there are extra little touches, with a small serving of Vichysoisse to start with and some beautiful morsels of chocolate cake and strawberry tartlets with coffee at the end. The service is efficient and friendly and of course the setting also adds to the experience, as Eschalot is in one of the old inns of Berrima. After an excellent meal, there is a lovely kitchen garden out the back to admire. This time we chose from the a la carte menu but previously we also ate there with friends from the set lunch menu and both experiences were first class.

This is a fantastic restaurant, the ambience cosy and service friendly and impeccably attentive. This is a special place to not only enjoy eating beautiful french style food and sipping lovely wines but a place to enjoy the company you are dining with. I went with my family, and even though this restaurant doesn't provide a "kid's menu" the chef's go out of there way to provide you with food that you & your children would enjoy. Everything is cooked to order, lovely,rich, fresh and delicous, the local wines are delightful. The service impeccable! Enjoy the Eschalot experience when you visit Berrima.
