We chose to eat here based on other reviews, but were a little disappointed by the service and the expensive cost of the dishes. Solitary has stunning views over the valley, but when we asked if our party of 3 could sit by the window, we were told all those tables were reserved, even though some never had diners for... More

Had a superb dinner at Solitary. Food, especially the fillet of beef, was cooked by Sebastian, Son and Head Chef running it with the help of his Parents, was exactly as requested, pink and melted in the mouth. Lynn, his Mother, helped in the dining room, and was efficient, delightful and kind. This is Family run Restaurant that ranks up... More

You come for the view of Leura Falls and it was quite stunning and this is a pleasant and relaxing way to appreciate the environment. Not fine dining but good for a relaxing lunch - a twice cooked goats cheese souffle and chicken and leek pie were tasty and enjoyable Probably better for lunch than dinner for the views. Difficult...

My wife and I stopped in here for Sunday lunch. I had the crisp skinned trout and my wife had the chicken and leek pie. Both were delicious. Very courteous service and a very pleasant atmosphere. Definitely recommended.

Lovely restaurant, beautiful view and seriously good food. Excellent service too. Although it's housed in a simple cottage it has a quiet, simple grace about it. And for the quality of the food it's not really expensive. This is a gem in the mountains.

What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday, fine dining (it was lunch), attentive service and fantastic view. Solitary had it all. It was refreshing to find amazing food with generous serving sizes, good wine list, relaxed but first class atmosphere and great service coupled with million dollar views. There was never a hint of "hurry" the pace was spot... More

We came to this restaurant from our 4hr cliff top walk - very weary and in need of food and beverage. We were a little bit paranoid about how we looked as there were some very nicely dressed diners inside. On our arrival to the door, we were looked up and down a few times by the lady - who... More
