Anniversary Lunch. Ushered to the side dining room instead of the glass enclosed veranda where we have been before. Unfortunately a couple with screaming toddlers were seated near to us which made it a bit noisy. The food was very good as you would expect for the cost, however the seating location and noise detracted from the experience. Not sure... More

We chose Echoes to celebrate my birthday lunch. We couldn't find a single fault! The staff were very attentive & helpful. The food was amazing! We had the Parmesan bread, the steak, the risotto, then followed by the dessert for 2. Everything was delicious & the view was gorgeous. Then the staff delivered a complimentary plate of 4 delicious little... More

Food a service were good, the view is fantastic but you need to get in early to get the best seats. I recommend a brunch or early/late dinner option obviously to late and its dark so pick a moonlit night for dinner.

We arrived in time to enjoy the end of sunset over the gorge beneath Katoomba. Despite the good views, the ambience is a bit lacking here, it being above the lobby of the hotel , that it belongs to. It didn't help being sat next to a load man having a 'domestic' with his companion. The menu was interesting, the... More

My husband and I went here for dinner during our 20th anniversary getaway where we stayed a few nights at Lilianfels (just a very short walk across the road). We had booked a month in advance and were so happy to be seated at a window table overlooking the most incredibly stunning view of the valley below!!! The waiters were... More

In my experience often a restaurant with a good view overly relies on the view rather than the quality of the food and service for patronage. This is not the case with Echoes. The view was beautiful but the food stands alone, wonderful, accompanied by attentive service. In katoomba is is a must eat.

Apparently Lilianfels took this restaurant over not so long ago and we were looking for somewhere really nice to have dinner. The views are spectacular. For the amount of money we spent on a 3 course meal and alcohol we found the food was great not fantastic and the service was good not great.

We ate here as a couple and were a little underwhelmed. The view is amazing, the entrees were very good and the service was superb but the meals are very expensive, quite small and the main was a little dull. This is a one time experience for us as I think there are better options for a much more reasonable... More

Nice food but... Trying to feed us in 40 mins was plain wrong. Main turned up within 2 mins of entree finishing. I sent it back on hold. This is NOT fine dining etiquette. We couldn't be seated in main patio, fair enough but we were seated in a room with a party of 12, 2 very young kids and... More
