What an unexpected experience of a bygone time along with a superbly prepared modern menu. Great food, great wine list all within an eclectic environment of a era sadly passed. I would highly recommend you experience this little gem when next staying in Katoomba.

Have dined here twice once with friends, once with family and each time we found something interesting to look at inside the restaurant while waiting for meals. Not one item matches and to say the layout is a mismatch of vintage and junky items is not an understatement. Upstairs in an old theatre, the foyer is bare until you reach... More

We love dining at Avalon and make a point of visiting every time we visit the Blue Mountains. Service is fantastic, especially as this was our first visit with a bub in tow, we were well looked after with space for the pram and one staff member even ran after us when we left to give us a dummy cover...

I shouted my husband and 2 of my good friends to this restaurant. It is very cosy and the hostess is very nice. The food was tasty and lovely. I have visited this restaurant twice and would recommend this place to anyone.

From the street you would never know that at the top of the stairs you step back in time in this I guess eclectic restaurant. The ambience is great and the food delicious, service was a little slow but we didn't mind as we were enjoying the whole experience. We will go back again.

Didn't event get a seat, we were told "no seats , we are fully booked" said the lady with a fascinator as we walked in. In actual fact, I think she did us a favour. Strangest place I've ever seen. Scene out of twilight zone. The 50 year old DJ was classic

I only come here on special occasions but it never disappoints. , it's a great for the eyes as well as other senses. Had the grilled figs, caramelized leek tart, slow cooked lamb, veal medallions, and of course the licorice cheesecake. All divine. I think it's great value for the service, care of preparation and variety. A great night as... More
