Nothing to fault with beautifully presented courses, good wine list and attentive but not intrusive service. A definite 'must return'.

Beautiful old building, nicely decorated. Was a quiet day when we were there for lunch. We were greeted by a very pleasant young man who looked after us very well with excellent service. The food was amazing with some quite different dishes available. It's very pricey, but if you're celebrating a special occasion it would be well worth it. Wine... More

I booked in at Eschalot for my partner's surprise birthday at the recommendation of a local accommodation provider. Eschalot treated us like royalty with my partner being the undisputed Queen for the night. The service was attentive without being intrusive, we were in a private room and the noise level was very subdued (a plus for an aurally challenged person... More

This is our favourite nighttime restaurant in Berrima. It really can't be faulted. The food is always excellent with great attention to detail, always up to the minute but never slavishly so, good wine list by bottle and glass, great desserts, attentive knowledgeable service and lovely ambience. Even in our full room of 5 or 6 tables we had no... More

We enjoyed a Saturday night dinner at Escahalot. We order the Hallibut for our main course - we were surprised to see this on the menu as not very common - it was absolutely wonderful. We then enjoyed a ginger soufflé which was exquisite. Would highly recommend the food here.

We stopped for dinner and had an excellent meal with tasty and imaginative food, matched to good wines. One of us had a vegetarian meal and another a gluten free meal. We had a range of selections and the staff knew about food intolerances. We arrived early at 6:15 pm and were escorted to a pleasant room with a selection... More

Dinner at Eschalot restaurant recently for my birthday. They were not aware of the nature of our booking. A Friday night. Service and engagement, first rate! Food excellent and most innovative and interesting. Wine list diverse, well chosen and balanced. Very happy experience.

This restaurant was a pleasure to visit. I like that it has different rooms so there is a feel of intimacy. The food was lovely - we matched our meals with wines which allowed us to enjoy each dish to its best. The wines we received were wines we would never usually try and this added to the night. We...
