we visited this restaurant a month prior for our 35th anniversary dinner and were disappointed But this time around by invitation of the owners who we highly commend for their reaction to our bad review - they did their utmost to make up for our bad experience and it was totally unexpected. The meal and service were simply amazing .... More

We accidentally stumbled upon this place while looking for a nice spot to watch the sunset and we weren't disappointed. We enjoyed a few ciders and an unobstructed view of the mountains from the tables outside. The barramundi was recommended and it was cooked perfectly. The waiter was very pleasant and attentive. We had a lovely time and we would... More

We organised a lunch for 20 friends after our recent move to the Blue Mountains. We were looking for a mountain setting and good cuisine at a reasonable price. We tried out a couple of restaurants before The Rooster and were disappointed. We then stepped into The Rooster and immediately loved the ambiance that is very traditional French and captures...

We had a family meal celebrating a birthday and all 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed each course of the meal. The wine was excellent and we loved the ambiance! The Tartare de boeuf and the Rognons d’agneau au brandy & champignons were my favourites. We will be back!

My husband and I just enjoyed the most delicious meal at the Rooster Restaurant at Katoomba. From the very first moment we were greeted by Irwin, then served by Charles, not to mention the beautiful music from Will was a pure delight. My husband enjoyed eye fillet & I absolutely loved the rack of lamb. We felt we were dining... More

I ate with 3 others at the Rooster, they all enjoyed it more than I did, but then I am a very fussy eater ! We all had the duck, which was cooked very well. I thought the serve was very small. It was served with a honey sauce which I thought tasted very odd, but my dining companions loved... More

A fabulous meal as always - unpretentious French food that isn't dripping in sauces so the quality of the food comes through. My husband is a fussy eater and they catered for him easily. We had lamb and steak which were both cooked perfectly (as the chef recommended) and desert was the pear belle helene and the macaron, both were... More
