We were suggested this restaurant by the BnB we stayed in in Katoomba (In My View), he also suggested to book in quickly as it can be busy on a weekend. We arrived to what looks like a little house and were warmly greeted and shown to our table straight away. We looked at the menu and wanted to try a little of everything on it - the most annoying thing about eating here was that we could only pick 1 main meal each!! They all looked so good and all had a little twist to them. We had the dumplings to start with - beautiful, the pork belly and the wagu curry for main - yummo and scottiish bread and white chocolate brulee for dessert. We never order entrée AND dessert, but we just couldn't get enough. The meals were very filling and hit all the right spots. What an amazing meal had by my partner and myself. Thoroughly enjoyed every bite and found prices to be very reasonable!

“So Lovely”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I dined here on Friday night. A lovely, intimate restaurant with delicious food choices. The hostess was very charming and accommodating. We arrived rather early so we sat and sipped wine by the cosy wood heater. At least three groups of people arrived asking to dine but were politely turned away due to being fully booked. That tells me that this place is very popular with locals and visitors alike. We had the bruschetta as an entree and I have to say it was the best I have ever eaten!!! The young couple sitting next to us asked to have the same when they saw how much we enjoyed it!! The prices are very reasonable, the wine list was smallish but lovely, the service was friendly and courteous and the food was absolutely beautiful. If we go back to Katoomba, Pins on Lurline will be definitely on our list!

“Wonderful Meal with Asian Twist !”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

Great food choices - I had kangaroo, my partner had the dumplings and then the duck. We shared the trio of chocolate - they had run out of chocolate brulee by then but the substituted lime and ginger version was divine. Service was impeccable !
Licensed but also offer BYO. Thoroughly recommended and just 5 minutes from our b and b (Lurline House).

“Always delicious!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We ate twice at Pins and both meals were brilliant. A mix of Japanese, Italian, and Scottish??? An inspired menu. We shared the gyoza which were delicious and then tried various pasta dishes, all amazing. We hear the deserts are to die for, but sadly could not fit them in. Highly recommended.

“Dinner for Two at Pins on Lurline”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

I recently spent two nights in the Blue Mountains. While there we booked for dinner at Pins are were very impressed. The menu, service and value are hard to beat and the hostess was most accommodating in catering for my special dietary requirement. We enjoyed our meal so much we
went back the following night. Thoroughly recommend.
