Some excellent dishes, and great service. The patatas bravas and the eggplant were both fabulous and the pork eaters really enjoyed the pork belly. My Dad described the salt and pepper squid as the best he's had. And the pecan pie was excellent. And well matched with the Piggs Peake Suckling Pig... read more

We stayed at the Hydro for a few nights but decided to save our dollars and eat at this small restaurant. They served mostly tapas style food that you could mix and match small servings and sample a wide variety of dishes. A good choice of wine and beer also available. The food was lovingly prepared and very tasty indeed.... More

This really did happen beyond my disbelief. Walked in. Place was empty. Was asked to make a booking anyway. Came back at allocated time with my 2 young kids and there was only 1 other table of customer. My daughter was tired and crying, having one of those moments. Then it all started with: the hostess came over in her... More

After a very successful four year run, the original Escarpment team, chef Barry O'Sullivan and restaurateur David Waters, sold out in late 2013. And to be honest, the first few visits back under the new owners were a little disappointing. It never quite worked without Barry in the kitchen. So, we are happy to report that the latest reincarnation of... More

This restaurant is a sleeper. I have tried to visit on numerous occasions, but always found it closed. I finally tried it last week and where do I begin? The service from our hostess was most professional and discreet. Food service times were excellent. A small wine list, but enought to choose a good wine and feel content. (Please note... More

First timers, definitely returning. We chose the tapas for two special, $50 with wine. Faultless food and presentation. Then lured into a honey, white chocolate and rhubarb panacotta dessert with coffee. Too good!!

What an amazing find, nestled in the lovely town of Blackheath, this restaurant delivered beyond expectation. I was curious to see a tapas restaurant in this location and decided to give it a whirl after seeing good reviews. We were warmly welcomed and seated quickly. There is a great range of tapas from the traditional "patatas bravas" through to "salmon... More

Escarpment is a great little restaurant for Blackheath. Casual and relaxed but with fresh, tasty food and a nice selection of Tapas dishes to choose from with main courses available as well. Friendly and efficient service. We'll be back soon.

We were in Blackheath on a Sunday evening after a great walk and just wanted to relax with good food. We had a very warm welcome and the food was great. It is BYO so we picked up a couple of bottles across the road. If we'd been staying longer we would certainly have returned and on our next trip... More

Truly excellent tapas. We had the salad with walnuts, salmon croquettes and garlic shrimp all of which were delightful. The evening was topped off with a superb sticky date pudding with creme anglaise. The service was excellent. Would definitely return.
