Nice Lunch

We had a nice fairly light lunch in the old Fork n View for memory's sake. Food was nice, if not amazing. Have eaten here quite often before and alfresco in Spring or Autumn overlooking the valley is the pick of timing. Winter not so much.

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.

A cold day in the Blue Mountains. Four of us decided on Solitary Restaurant at Leura for afternoon tea. The building, on Cliff Drive, has a direct view over Mount Solitary (of course!), and several of the tables are positioned to take advantage of this. It was a quiet Wednesday afternoon, and we were the only table occupied. The dining... More

We enjoyed every single mouthful of our 3 course meal, I went here years ago and have to say things are even better now. I had the pumpkin and beetroot tart, braised pork and ice cream Sunday for desert. Well done solitary we will return.

We were a group of 8 girls for lunch for a special occasion and this was the perfect choice. The menu is fantastic and we will need to go back to sample a few other items that we didn't manage to get to. The cured duck was absolutely delicious and I thought couldn't be topped until the pork belly arrived.... More

We enquired about wheelchair access when we booked. If you push your own wheelchair, forget it. But if you've in a transit wheelchair then have a go. The gravel path from the car park was a slight challenge :there's a step up into the restaurant but I was able to tilt the wheelchair back and get Ros inside. The staff... More

This quaint restaurant is perfectly located on the cliff giving incredible views of the blue mountains. The service is excellent, the food is fresh and tasty. Perfect location for a sunny day. Definitely recommended
