“Pleasant Lunch”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

There was quite a lot of tourist traffic on the day we visited and only one member of staff on the floor, but he kept things ticking over well, was very friendly, and there were no overly long delays in the service. Nice views, and the food was lovely - a good hearty dish of lamb shanks. We opted for dessert after seeing someone else order pavlova, in spite of being full from the substantive mains, and it was well worth having. A good spot to dine in Leura - more towards the gastropub end of the pub dining experience.

Went to Leura during the Garden Festival and the place was packed. Silkes was booked out and I had a bad rap on the long wait just to order in the French restaurant and Leura Garage looked uncomfortable and no change on $120 for dinner for two. A local mentioned Redferns Restaurant in the Alexandra Hotel on the other side of the tracks. The food was good - not outstanding - but good and the price was much less than the 3 other restaurants in central Leura ($90 for two courses and two beers). Atmosphere and decor was good, service was quick and friendly. They had no problem adding fresh cream to the pavlova (with a smile).

My husband and I ate lunch here on a day trip from Sydney. We've eaten here before but today the food was exceptional. I ordered the salmon parcel with ginger and lemongrass and my husband ordered the beef curry pot pie - both were delicious. My meal was the best I've eaten in a long time. Thw service was fast and friendly but not rushed. Next time we will stay the night for sure!

We stayed here at the Alex Hotel and we loved it. The staff were so friendly and the hotel room was so comfy. Great shower, comfy bed with electric blankets. Their restaurant was lovely. Service was fantastic and the sticky date pudding is to die for. The best we've ever eaten. Compliments to the lady chef!, Thanks Anne at the bar and David and another lovely lady in which I never got her name, in the restaurant. We will definitely be back for the serenity and the happy faces at the Alex. Wouldn't even bother staying at the over priced hotels in Katoomba, this is the place to stay. Affordable with happy faces. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 1 is the best room!,

Went here with a group of 15 with a large age spread - catered for all tastes, the food was great and came out fairly quickly, bar and wait staff very friendly - footy was on in the sports bar and the place was warm - no complaints.
you will likely need to get a cab from the resorts at Leura but this is about $15

If you from out of town, it is easy to drive past this place. If you do, make sure you turn around or you will have something to regret.
The food, the service and the ambience here are all great. In a way, it is disparaging to compare the offering here with your average pub. It can rightly lay claim to the title restaurant, but it is without the restaurant prices; even so, they claim to the title ‘Redferns Bistro’.
The tables are covered in linen and there is not a stool or splintered bench in sight. The history of the Hotel Alexandra ensures you a quiet, peaceful experience in an ambience of olde worlde warmthe.
We had a good choice in the menu, attentive and informative service from the waiter and the food was a very pleasant surprise. Don’t pass up the prawn twisters, they come with a mandatory ‘om nom yumm!
