Good ambiance, good service and a very good dinner — beef medallions in roquefort and chipotle sauce. The meat was perfectly cooked and there was a great selection of vegetables, also perfectly done. The only downside: my companion's oso bucco was tasty but it arrived cold in the middle.

Oaxaca is known for its culinary delights and L'Echalote certainly fills this billing. I ordered some beef medallions while my wife had grilled fish with a sweet and sour sauce. Both meals were wonderful and the bill was around $20US. Incredible!

L'Echalote is located on quiet street next to the hotel Eden Costa and around the corner from the Hotel Villablanca. We ate outside on the terrace out front and had an outstanding French inspired meal. The escargots were quite tasty in garlic and butter, followed by an excellent warm goat cheese salad. The French onion soup was simply presented and... More

The ambience was just one of the many things I enjoyed. You have the choice of where you sit. Out front in the open air or inside in the galleria . Be warned because you will have a difficult time choosing from the many dishes offered. The waiters are very professional and attentive. Such a bonus that this special restaurant... More

During a recent stay in Huatulco, I went to L'Echalote for dinner. Wonderful food, courteous service staff, and friendly owners. Everything was so good that I returned the following evening for yet another fine dining experience. Fresh salads, flavorful soups, and a nice variety of entrees. The next time I am in Huatulco, I will definitely return.
