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.

Not cheap here but very comfortable surroundings and the food for our five person lunch was very acceptable.

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

There was a time when this was consistently the best restaurant in the Southern Highlands but the world has passed them by. The courses, whilst well presented and flavoursome, are small and expensive. The service is better than average, but for the $s there are now much better around.

A la Carte menu is very interesting. Some flavours that one would not expect to work, WOW. Terrific for small groups and for just about everyone else. Really interesting wine list as well...very eclectic.

Thank Rob S
