“Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful food...a must when you visit the Blue Mountains!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We decided to stay in the mountains an extra night so we could experience Solitary for our selves on Wednesday (should have planned ahead & would have realised they are closed Monday & Tuesday). The atmosphere was great with both fine dinning and cafe style food an option, which the staff handled beautifully on a busy day! Shared the Salmon gravlax for entree, gorgeous! I had the melt in your mouth ocean trout And my partner had the Beef Borguignon special of the day, he enjoyed it so much I didnt even get a taste! Presentation was not what I had excpected from a Blue mountains Restaurant...which meant we had to finish of with the Salted Carmel & Chocolate Mouse cake!!! Delicous!

“Very poor service”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Visited the place for lunch and despite just 60% full on a tuesday they could barely cope. Waited for almost 30min and they still did not take our order. Avoid this place at all cost. Better places to eat and enjoy the scenery.

“Great Scones”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Solitary provided a warm haven for my wife to wait until I completed the walk from Echo Point. I had a fabulous freshly made (fluffy & light) scone with jam and cream while sitting next to the window looking into the valley.

“Great View”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Only stopped here for a glass of wine in the afternoon and later had a coffee. Sat outside in the sun and looked out across the mountains. Didn't stay for lunch but worth a stop even for a coffee after hiking.

“Solitary dinner absolutely brilliant!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We just had to counter-balance all the bad reviews as have just had one of the best dining experiences in a long while at Solitary. Service was friendly and efficient and food just divine. We highly recommend the alpaca ribs. The Ambience was welcoming and warm so don't be put off by the bad reviews as they are certainly offering wonderful dinner dining. We will definately be back.
