My family and I went to this restaurant whilst staying in Katoomba a few months ago after reading good reviews on another website. To start with we were greeted rather aggressively by the Maitre D' who was very overbearing and strange. He treated the two eighteen year-old daughters more like ten year-olds, assuming they wouldn't eat greens, drink anything but soda or like any of the seafood dishes.
The meals were bland and boring, except for the onion soup which was delicious.
A "French Salad" that cost something like 15 dollars was nothing more than pre-washed leaves in some olive oil. Not something worth travelling for. We were so disappointed by the meals we didn't consider the dessert.
The decor was stuffy and old-fashioned, but that was the style they wanted so can't really fault it. The service was slow but at the same time strangely intrusive.
Usually it isn't about the restaurant, it's about the people you go with, but for this kind of price and reputation to be left feeling disappointed and ripped off is not a good thing.
