I went with a party of 14 people to Eschalot on Saturday 11 April. We originally booked for 8 people but changed to 14 at the last moment. This was obviously difficult as it was Easter but they accommodated us with good grace. The food and service were excellent. I had duck which was superb. Having raised ducks it was obvious that they had sourced the best quality. My fellow diners were equally pleased.We look forward to returning. P. McCullough

Eschalot Overview

A striking heritage-listed sandstone cottage is home to Eschalot Restaurant, an award-winning eatery in the Southern Highlands. A popular dining destination since 2003, Eschalot embodies a classically refined style with white tablecloths, chandeliers and draped curtains combining to infuse elegance throughout. Sit by a sunny window overlooking the garden and courtyard, or huddle around the open fireplace during the cooler winter months all while enjoying a seasonal European-inspired menu. Dishes may include seared foie gras with pickeld local mushrooms, pine needle cream, porcini and danelion or dry aged lamb rump with broccolini, apricot and nasturtium oil. Team your meal with a side (perhaps pommes frites with truffle salt) as well as a glass of Southern Highlands wine from the cellar.

Eschalot Menu Sample

Pickled Queensland crab with fermented endive, garlic custard, shaved turnip and puffed rice. Eschalot signature Thirlmere Duck: roasted breast and confit leg, salt baked celeriac, watercress emulsion, kohlrabi and left over wine sauce.
