My husband and I have eaten here several times and its always the same. Just ok. The problem is that the menu never changes and you are never excited to try something new because there is NEVER anything new except for maybe the cocktail of the day. Perhaps the chef has become uninspired or simply cant be bothered but as... More

Absolutely perfect meal, highly recommend the stuffed mushrooms! Restaurant was busy and we happened to try ordering our dessert right when a huge table had just ordered. Waitress let us know there would be a slight delay and offered us complimentary glass of port while we waited. As it was, the wait was very minimal and truely worth it! If... More

Was looking for a restaurant for dinner during busy holiday period tonight and was fortunate to get a booking here. A great decision! Very tough decision to choose from good range of tapas but settled on the whole camembert, spicy meatballs and the pork belly. Found it hard to leave out the garlic prawns and pear & walnut salad. Each... More

We stopped at Blackheath on the way. and were looking for a bit to eat. We found Escarpment and were truly delighted with the food and service. We found the restaurant a gem and would recommend to all.

I was lured by the great lunch special of $25 pp including wine. I was solo so unfortunately missed out, but stayed for baked camembert, friend cauliflower and Prosecco. All were lovely. I'd definitely eat there again, either with a group or with another. Trying just 2 dishes was torture.

Well, we have just had our third visit to Escarpment Tapas Restaurant and once again we were made very welcome and enjoyed a fabulous meal. There is plenty of choice for every taste and repeat visits. Good value for money too. It is only a small restaurant run by a husband & wife team so not to be disappointed it... More

We tried this Tapas Restaurant for the first time last week. It was a Friday evening and we were glad we had booked beforehand, as quite a few people came in "on spec" and had to be turned away. There was one waitress dealing with every table, but she was so efficient that no-one was kept waiting, and everyone's questions... More
