Nice restaurant, great food

This restaurant is located right next to the Best Western Alpine Motor Inn where I was staying. Arrived quite late at the motel after a delayed drive from Sydney and the restaurant was just closing early as it was a quiet night. However the owner/chef kindly stayed open and personally served up a... read more

I am a regular in Leura and Katoomba but had never tried this place before. After a cloudy cool day in Jenolan Caves we really felt like a steak and fries and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the price. I was especially relieved that the restaurant choice was a success because I had two people... More

This restaurant is next to the best western inn so convenient for us on our last night in Katoomba. Meal was reasonably price and food was nice enough. It's not fine cuisine but fair for the price. Waitress was nice and even glimpsed the resident cat. Decor was a bit tired but had old world charm.

My husband and I thought we would give this restaurant a go for our anniversary. We almost walked out at the start because it was 6:30 on a Saturday night and there was no one else in the restaurant but decided to stay. My lemon lime and bitters was basically bitters and sprite. My husbands beer was warm. My med/well... More

As locals we like to support local businesses, and friends had been to Rosewood and really enjoyed the food. So off hubby and I went for dinner on a wet, freezing cold Mountains night and we were really looking forward to a good meal. But we were sadly disappointed. The service was dreadful - three waitresses couldn't work out that... More

Second visit and the waiter from last time remembered us! The waitress who served us tonight was lovely. I had the salmon and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! My hubby had the t-bone and he ate the whole thing, not wanting any going to waste! This place is the best restaurant - wish we had one like it at home!

The food, the service, everything was just perfect. I had the 300g Angus steak with chips and pepper sauce. It was amazing, I highly reccomend it, very tender and juicy! The waiter was very friendly and professional, a good character.

Exhausted, we walked from the motel next door rather than drive into Katoomba. Out of town steak house, next to a fairly cheap motel, did not have high expectations. (1) prices were really reasonable (2) steak was really good quality (3) steak, sides and sauce all really well prepared (4) service very good. Two good steaks, sides, salad and a... More

Has a few issues like running out of certain beers and wines and even some meats. Forgetting all of the above the 500 gram rump steaks are mouth watering good. I have had two on separate occasions accompanied with chats and beans, at $28 great value. The scotch fillet was disappointing though and so was the pasta. Chicken rivera was... More
