Recommended to us on a number of occasions, our visit Berrima was always going to include dinner at Eschalot. Warmly greeted, shown to our table in this lovely old building and presented the menu to peruse and then given a little explanation as to the structure of the courses. We both opted to order 3 courses each. The service and... More

Rating the food: 7/10 Good Contemporary Australian Food Recommended by a Twitter friend who posted many stunning food pics online from this restaurant, so definitely wanted to try when we had the opportunity to travel to the NSW Southern Highlands. Travelling back from Canberra, we stopped here to celebrate my Mum's birthday. We arrived early and enjoyed walking around the... More

Really wonderful experience from beginning to end. We had the tasting menu, each course was exquisite, with very clean flavours and fantastic ingredients. Beautiful food, attentive service and outstanding wine pairings. Completely exceeded expectations, which were already high given the longstanding reputation of this establishment.

Birthday and Anniversary celebration dinner which was really lovely, with extra care and attention given for our special occasion. Pleasant ambience with a quiet atmosphere suited the occasion. All dishes were well presented and very tasty. Excellent service showing good knowledge and a sense of humour which was great.

The food here was the best I've had in a long time. We had the 10 course tasting menu and it was hard to pick the winning course. The duck? The fish? Everything immaculately presented and explained , and the subtlety of flavours was astounding. Wonderful!

We had the degustation menu and it was 4 hours of pain. The wait staff knew nothing about the wine, the bugs were undercooked, the rest of the food was unmemorable.

I think I may have to question the validity of this review. We are far from perfect and yes we do sometimes drop the ball - such is our industry. Firstly we haven't had bugs on our Tasting menu for over 1 year. Secondly we allow 2.5 hours for our Tasting menu - not 4. Thirdly, only my seasoned floor... More

We enjoyed a delightful meal with friends. Pacific Coffin Bay Oysters 3 ways – mignonette, dashi wakame gel or natural; Kingfish Tataki, yuzu & vine leaves; Ravioli of Crayfish, bisque & caramelised leeks. Delicious! Followed by a cheese platter. The wine list is extensive catering for all price ranges. A lovely evening, attentive staff. A restaurant well worth visiting again.

Lunching at Eschalot for the first time, had me arriving with high expectations after reading all of the glowing reviews. Our dining companions wanted to try the $45 ''Quick Lunch'' and we agreed. I found the choices limited and selected the seared tuna entree and the hanger steak & shortrib main. Tuna being tuna, it was bland and though nicely... More
