A great restuarant which uses local produce and wines. A must if you are looking for a high end meal in the blue mountains.

A small restaurant in the heart of Blackheath. If you are not in the know, you are unlikely to stop, but what an experience! Short card, but impressive dishes. My steak was melting in the mouth. All deserts are just outstanding. I tried the wine by the glass. Generous in quantity and excellent in quality. The ambiance is relaxed as... More

We went to Ashcroft on a rainy day for lunch. I had heard good things so was expecting them. The food was fresh and serving sizes reasonable, although it really is just fish and chips or steak and chips. Maybe too many chips, nothing to write home about to be honest. The mousse like others have said is pretty good,... More

We were lucky and had lunch here, before the early day service was withdrawn. I feel sure if the dinners are anything like the lunches, it will be the place to stay and dine. Great people and nice atmosphere.

Although this restaurant was recommended to us, we were not quite sure what we would find & whether the price would translate into tasty food. We were very happy to find it was worthwhile & a very delicious meal. Highlights gnocchi, dauphine potatoes with the beef, pork entree & the interesting cheese dessert. Waiter started a bit hassled with a... More

Delicious food and friendly staff. The produce fresh and local. A great local restaurant if are visiting the region and you want to try something outside of a hotel setting. The menu was modern and full of interesting flavours but still accessible to kids.

We booked for a table of four ...a good idea. Great service.Great atmosphere. But the food ...WOW!!! Rivals the best in Sydney. Around the table we enjoyed Beef, Lamb backstrap and the salmon. All perfectly cooked but the thing that stood out was the mixture of flavours with the accompaniments on the plate and the sauces that were just amazing.... More
