Great food and service! One of us even said the beef he had was better than the one he recently ate at a michelin-star restaurant back home.

My uncle had his 60th birthday last weekend here, we had about 50 people in a small room but we just managed to fit, I wouldn't recommend having a massive function here.

The Rooster is with out a doubt the best fine dining experience you could possibly have in the Blue Mountains. The service was excelent, unobtrusive efficient and very polite. For anyone celebrating a special occasion the romantic ambiance of The Rooster will exceed your expectations. Overall highly recommend for any occasion.

Allowing ourselves one fine dining restaurant during our 4 day Blue Mountains holiday we weren't disappointed with our choice of The Rooster Katoomba. Menu and wine options were good and the food, service and ambiance were all first class. We were very happy with the night and can highly recommend.

Dined here for breakfast on a cool winter morning. The views are breathtaking, the atmosphere is relaxing, the waitstaff were lovely and attentive. I had the french toast which was simple yet so tasty, I will be bringing my friends and family back to experience this gem of a place.

After a dissapointing stay at the Carrington, we wanted to go out to an ambient place for dinner. We found it with The Rooster. Wonderful service, surrounds and glorious, mouth-watering French food and wine. I would visit Katoomba again ONLY to revisit The Rooster!

Dr Henriette and some of her colleagues from Integrated Dental Health enjoyed a delicious meal at the Rooster. We were delighted by the romantic ambience and the harpist serenading us all evening. The food was amazing; we recommend Soupe a l’oignon et croutons maison! We will be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thank you for such a... More
