Berrima is a day trip from Sydney, and is a lovely little town on the sometimes dusty plains of the Southern Highlands. Eschalot is in the township itself, situated in a pretty heritage sandstone cottage that has been expertly converted and decorated, hitting all the buttons that you would want it to hit, combining rustic country ways with city efficiency and service. If you are a city person Eschalot will not exasperate you with sleepy country ways, as can sometimes happen when city-folk head out of town. Certainly, Eschalot's food is good, it is all of it prepared in house, and much of it with local produce: indeed, much of it is grown in the grounds of the restaurant itself!
