Pleasant Monday night dinner

Staying in Mt Victoria on a Monday night meant we needed to go to Katoomba for dinner. Like other reviewers have indicated, this place does not appear as popular as others in the same area. Indeed when we arrived just after 6pm, we were the first customers. Although greeted by a very enthusiastic... read more

We dined here after walking past once or twice - it was very quiet but I can say this was not a reflection of the quality of the food. I suspect the "fine dining" appearance maybe makes people think its pricier than it is, we found it reasonable and the food was lovely - garlic bread, tomato gnocchi, salmon tagliatelli,... More

On our first night in Katoomba, we decided to take a walk & see what restaurants were on offer. A wide choice of cuisine is available & we decided on Monte Bello. Simple decor, extremely polite & attentive staff welcomed us in on a chilly night. Our dinner was exceptional & we couldn't find fault with anything…other than the time... More

Food was great. Service was good. Good location in main street. Recommended for couples and families with teens ... layout not conducive to large family groups unless you book ahead for the large upstairs room.

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

After a long day in Katoomba, enjoying the Winter Magic Festival we enjoyed a fantastic dinner at Monte Bello. the food was very nice, with a good selection on the menu. 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.
