Perched high on the hill on cliff drive is this delightful restaurant offering indoor and outdoor seating. Gorgeous view of Mount Solitary. We sat outside in the sunshine and soaked up the country ambience. We liked the cafe menu and a la carte menu both of which were offered. The wine list has local wines and we were not disappointed.... More

We have been occasionally visiting this superb restaurant for years and it has never disappointed us. Tonight the meal was absolutely delicious. We had the soft shell crab. The scallop filled zucchini flowers, Asian spatchcock & pork belly. All was delicious. Our server was just lovely. I don't think a trip to katoomba would be complete without a meal here.... More

Had a great time, ignore the other reviews. I'm sure those people turned up to a nice restaurant inappropriately dressed. Was busy so glad we booked, but what a great night. The duck was so good.

Everything about Solitary is wonderful. The staff are fantastic and efficient, the atmosphere is great, and the views you get to admire while eating are breathtaking. As someone with specific dietary requirements, I was left almost speechless by how willing the chef was to accomodate me, and alter dishes to allow me to eat them...and I was amazed at how... More

We didn't get a chance to eat here, but definitely worth stopping, particularly in the afternoon (we stopped after a big hike), to sit and have a drink outside on the lawn, with a stupendous view of the Blue Mountains out in front of you. Meals looked good from the other tables!

Solitary is set in the most amazing location. One can eat a meal inside or outside, whilst feasting on stunning views of the Blue Mountains, set on the cliff between Leura and Katoomba. The staff are attentive yet not intrusive, and on our visit were very accommodating of my need to be totally vegetarian. THe meals were delicious and interesting,... More

My friend and I ended up here today after a 10k walk and bush climb; naturally we were in need of replenishment and due to its handy location, we thought where better? Unfortunately the answer to this question is ANYWHERE would be better... We were greeted by a hostile, some what older woman who appeared to be front of house.... More

Sipped a yummy milkshake whilst taking in the stunning view. Lovely outdoor garden and stunning vistas. Cafe tables and comfortable chairs outside. Well worth the visit. The menu looked inviting and the prices reasonable for the location. Give this place a go for sure! You won't be disappointed.

I went to this restaurant with my partner on a Saturday night at 8pm in winter. The menu had a choice of 5 entrees, 5 main and 5 desserts. We ordered about 8.20pm, got our entree at 8.55pm and didn't receive our mains till 9.45pm! It was so disappointing as the food was delicious but when you start to bond... More
