Great big breakfast

Yes the service was slow but if you want a decent big breakfast that doesn't fancy itself-up with rocket, then this is the place. $12.90 and couldn't eat it all. Would go back even if it does take a while

Our visit was by sheer chance, & how pleasantly surprised we were! Decor beautiful and fascinating (even in the toilets! ) it was warm & inviting. Vegetarian antipasto substantial (shared) & tasty and my vegetarian curry delightfully un-hot but flavoursome! Warm chicken salad lovely and shared banana & caramel tart a treat. Heartily recommend this place. Next to us was... More

Had a fantastic birthday dinner there on Saturday night. It is upstairs in the old picture theatre and has retained much of the art deco charm. The food was delicious - clean plates all round and the cocktails great too. The wine list was small but made it easier to choose!

Staff are friendly the atmosphere is different and quirky, especially the bathrooms! The meal was of a high standard. A few of us had the beef fillet which was very tender and a more than generous serving. Overall it was a pleasant different place to eat. Conveniently located opposite the Carrington.

Recommended to the Avalon by friends and we were not disappointed. Forget your over priced nouvo cuisine restaurants. This is well priced for the quantity and tastiness of food on the plate. Situated in the old picture theater makes the atmosphere of the place with exceptional service. Walked away well satisfied.

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
