Good menu.....lovely environment, friendly staff. A touch of the old world......delicious food. We have been here several times and find it reasonably priced with varying special menu which makes choosing more interesting. The bathrooms are particularly worth seeing. An historical bar is also an attraction. Well worth the visit.

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely meal here. The food was delicious, the waiting time wasn't too bad (they were fairly busy) and the service was friendly.

Fantastic! Restaurant is in an old movie theatre in Katoomba St, Katoomba. Meals were a good size and not stingy. The slow roasted lamb was delicious. Decore is, well not to everyones taste but very interesting. Hard to describe but imaginative and quirky comes to mind. Great value for a good night out. Watch out for parking though as it... More

I took my son for his 19th birthday. I wanted a sophisticated restaurant as he has not been to too many of these! The restaurant is beautiful, and atmospheric, very eclectic- perhaps a little 'run down' in parts, but quirky. Unfortunately, the service was slow and dull. We had a younger waitress who never said a word to us and... More

We went here for dinner as my partner has been here before and was showing me photos of doll heads covered in glass casings. In other words, I was curious. We didn't book so had to wait at the lounge bar and had a couple of drinks before dinner whilst watching movies and commercials from the 50's which was very... More

The menu is extensive and good. The management and wait staff are professional, attentive and the food is perfect. The decor matches the back in time feel of the town, the buildings and the mountains with distant views a perfect accompaniment.

A very romantic and warm atmosphere. The music outside from the bar also added to the ambiance. My partner and I ordered the small antipasto plate to share for an entree. It was very tasty, the ingredients tasted fresh, and a good portion too, leaving us plenty of room for our main and desserts. We ordered the atlantic salmon.. Beautifully... More

From the herb bread through 3 courses and the cocktails. All the food and drinks were great. As a liquorice lover the liquorice bullet cocktail was superb and the liquorice cheese cake magnificent. Lovely view. Good service. Eccentric décor right down to the loos! Of course topped off by the company of good friends.
