My husband and I really enjoy this restaurant. The food is delicious, the service is great and the atmosphere is welcoming. We enjoyed the fish fillet in a leek sauce last night and it was amazing!

We have been visiting this tasty restaurant for three years in a row and never disappointing. The menu is a mix of French and a touch of Asian cuisine making us to visit for more than one night during our Holidays. The staff, food and atmosphere are excellent.

Best meal in Huatulco during our stay. Special was the smoked tuna salad which was great. Then we had Escargots...couldn't get enough bread to sop up the sauce. :-) Finished off with Chateaubriand for two...perfectly done meat great sauce and outstanding sides. Service was great and food was outstanding!

My husband, my daughter and I visited L'Echalote tonight because of the rave reviews and we were incredibly disappointed. It was not because of the wait for the food - we expected that - it was the quality of food and lack of service.

First time in restaurant. Servers were friendly and very efficient...like a fine dining establishment. Food was okay. Salads were yummy; pasta dishes were tasty but unfortunately fish was over cooked (pargo). Shrimp dish was "sabroso". Would go again and try something else.

Thank Tracy H
