Great dinner

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.

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

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 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.

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.
