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

I'm not sure why this has an overall rating of 4/5 - it's my fave in the mountains and I always make a point of coming when I visit. The prices do seem a little high however you forget that once your food comes. One of my friends commented that it's nice to have a chef who cares and knows... More
