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.

Our friends had spoken about the Escarpment so we decided to all meet up there and share a meal. What a delightful experience it was and we have been back three times since. The service and the food are really excellent, the decor leaves a little bit to be desired but it's clean and generally well presented. The coffee they... More

My husband and two boys went to escarpment for an early dinner. To me the place was really odd: no soul, no personality, I-e very bland deco. :-(( Though the food was delicious, the service was extremely slow and rather impersonal. Did I mention that the place closed at 8.30 pm? It was like finding myself in the twilight zone!

Went there on Sunday evening after a walk around the Grand Canyon. Excellent tapas. Had the mushrooms, the squid, croquttas, garlic prawns and a pear salad. All beautifully presented accompanied by lovely bread with dukkah and oil. BYO only. At around $50 a head, we left very full and happy. The staff were excellent and helpful in their recommendations.
