The Avalon is a delightful place to share a delicious meal with friends, or dine alone and soak up the beauty of the Blue Mountains' Jamieson Valley. If you can plan to, do book ahead and reserve a seat by the huge window wall and enjoy a long lunch, taking in the mountainscape. And when the sun goes down (or... More

Had dinner at the Avalon with my wife on New Year's Eve. If eating out should be a total experience in terms of atmosphere, decor, service, food and value, the Avalon is up there with the best of them in the area. The owners have been around in two locations for a decade and a half (as I recall) and... More

Our first server was a stinker and rolled her eyes when we made a specific request. I'll grant that we were messing with their New Year's Eve set menu but we almost left. Once she turned us over to a second server, we were much happier. She honored our request and was most pleasant. The food was very good; interesting,... More

This restaurant is in an old cinema building which is part of Katoomba's history. The area that was the dress circle has been turned into a restaurant and the projection room is now the kitchen. They have a very varied menu and the food is just great. One would not feel hungry after consuming any of their 3 course meals.... More

This restuarant has had to same menu for ever, not great for a local. The actual building is quite interesting, an old theatre, with lots of antiques.

I loved the Avalon, quirky setting in an old theatre with a ticket booth as you come in. It really is something special. Food was excellent, a great meal with my family. Service was very good too.

Fun and funky atmosphere even in the bathrooms. We arrived before our booking and had a drink in the various - 50's decor - good background music. Staff dressed the part and were very friendly and the food was good and reasonably priced also. Add boy wine and a lovely view all in all a great evening spent with friends.

A very atmospheric experience along with good food. After dinner drinks taken in the lounge ( though advised maybe a little warm as no AC) but thoroughly enjoyed the ambience never the less. A little gem, but shhhhh, keep it to yourselves!
