Tuesday dinner and there were half a dozen tables in. The decor is a bit tired but the staff were very pleasant and attentive. Entree prawns were very tasty. Chicken with mozzarella main was great and the rare eye fillet of beef was beautifully handled as well as being huge! Byo, very reasonable menu prices and really solid cooking. Recommended.

We walked past at first because it was empty and didn't look popular. We were wrong. We went back and were greeted by very professional staff, I ordered gnocchi and my husband ordered the rib eye. The gnocchi was melt in your mouth, to die for. Best gnocchi I have ever tried. My husband loved his meal, the rib eye... More

The staff were very friendly and very helpful. We had white table cloths and good service. We had three courses, all of which were timely, plentiful and delicious. I... More

We were really not hoping for much to be open on a Monday night in Katoomba and while this restaurant looked quite ok it doesn't have a lot of atmosphere. However we thought it the best of what we had checked out and were so happy we went in. The young waitress was so welcoming and eager to please and... More

We went with my wife on a Sunday evening. The service is excellent and the atmosphere let you expect some very fine cuisine. But the first disappointment came when I ordered a glass of wine. Instead of using the nice large glasses already on the table, the waiter puts in front of me a tiny glass and fills it up.... More

The service and food was excellent, well complemented by the decor and the soft background music. We have returned a couple of times and will definitely go again.

A colleague and I were looking for somewhere to enjoy an evening meal. Whilst most of the other cafes looked busy, and this one had no-one in it at the time, I did look inviting with it's well-set tables and white-linen table clothes (everywhere else just had bare tables). So we decided to take a chance. We were not disappointed,... More
