The good: the tapas was delicious. The beer from Zig Zag Brewery was fantastic The not so good: the paella was soggy and tasteless. On a Saturday evening this place could do with an extra staff member.

Previous comments about one waitress hold true and the average rating reflects the service speed more than anything else. After ordering we were asked if we would like some of the warm bread with oil and spice. We took up this option and I expected it to be served relatively promptly given the kitchen only needed to warm some bread.... More

A cold night in the Blue Mountains, but the warmest of experiences at the Escarpment. Tapas menu is highly original and appealing. Attentive and very helpful service. Thursday night is BYO - adds another dimension to what is was a great value and enjoyable visit.

Small noisy and great tapas. Lovely fresh ingredients. Only one very busy waitress on Friday night but she did a great job and was very helpful and friendly. Wine list isn't bad and good value. The house Sangria also very good. Seems to be a very popular spot so best to book ahead. Well worth a visit Wonderful

What a surprise to find a cosy little Spanish Tapas restaurant in Blackheath. We had a lovely dinner here with some excellent and tasty morsels. Highlights were the stuffed mushroom, fried cauliflower and the meatballs. The wine list was varied and well priced. Loved the fireplace in the middle of the restaurant - good for a winter's evening. Good value... More

Visited here for dinner on our yearly trip to the Blue Mountains. We had the tapas for dinner and it was absolutely delicious. Definitely best to book ahead as it was booked out and the service was lovely even with how busy it was.

There are few restaurant options in Blackheath and this is one of the best. Good menu, fast and friendly service, great food. I'm a bit of a fan of paella and this one was perfect. Well worth a visit but best book as it's small and will get busy at peak times.
