Good service and competent food

We went for dinner recently and there were two sittings as it was a Saturday night. Place was packed. The steak I ordered wasn't that memorable, perhaps I should have gone for the fish; my friend liked his roasted spatchcock. Entrees were good particularly the pork belly. Most memorable was the... read more

Took my friend here as a treat for both of us and was very happy with our experience. Had booked for 1.00pm & was glad I had, as the restaurant was very busy. Got a table to the side, so didn't really see the whole vista, but that was fine, because we went outside & admired the view before leaving.... More

Just had a delicious lunch here after looking at the Three Sisters rock formation. The restaurant has a great menu for lunch and also had a cafe part to the menu for lite bites. The staff were friendly and ver welcoming on a cold and sometimes snowy day! The food was delicious and priced well for the quality of the... More

As a Blue Mountains local, we thought we would drop in to the cafe for hot chocolate and scones after a walk, one Sunday. From start to finish, we were not made to feel particularly welcome and we got the impression that cafe service was an inconvenience in comparison to the restaurant. The hot chocolate was average and we were... More

A return visit for a family birthday celebration which was, as expected, delightful. This is a very welcoming restaurant, situated with a stunning view over the Jamison Valley and the standards are always very high. Staff are professional, friendly and service is smart. As well as an a la carte lunch menu we had the choice from a specials and... More

It was a very cold winter Sunday when we arrived for lunch. The restaurant had very few diners but we hadn't made a reservation. We were assigned to a small table in a remote corner well away from any view. After being given our menus we had a long wait before our orders were taken even though the restaurant was... More

Solitary has everything going for it with stunning views and a lovely, peaceful setting close to Leura. We stopped by for lunch expecting a lovely cosy meal after reading some excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately the lack of service we received put a dampener on our day. A main draw of Solitary for visitors is that it offers stunning views.... More

Food is good. Not many options of you are vegetarian though. Atmosphere is nice but recommended going 7pm onwards when it fills up a bit. We Got to watch the lightning Storm from the big windows. Would visit again.

This restaurant is on the Cliff Drive between Leura and Katoomba. If you didn't know it was there, you'd never find it. The food is excellent, and could hold it's own against any fine dining restaurant and t's moderately priced.
