Escarpment came highly recommended from the owners of our accommodation. It definitely did not disappoint, we went with a selection from the Tapas menu and were impressed with the service and the quality of food. If you have the chance to stop in here for dinner, we would highly recommend it. P.S The Mill Sangiovese is a fantastic match for... More

Went for lunch with my partner, son & his partner and all enjoyed the food. I have since recommended Escarpment to our BnB guests and all have been impressed. Only down-side is that I can't eat dairy products so was quite limited in choices with the dishes on offer. The food though was delicious.

We stopped there on the way to Mudgee, for a quick lunch, and it was a very pleasant surprise. On a Friday, the restaurant was deserted and we opted for the lunch special: $49.50 tapas plate for two with a glass of wine each. Excellent choice! The food was excellent and plentiful, they even served freshly baked bread and a... More

My partner and I wanted to come here last time we were in Blackheath, but couldn't get a reservation... This time we booked ahead and we're so glad we did! The menu caters for all tastes... We had 4 dishes from the tapas menu and shared a paella and that was more than sufficient for us! Will definitely recommend Escarpment... More

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.
