“Best pizza and casual dining in the mountains”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

If you consider yourself a foodie, a good tourist or generally speaking a fan of good food this is the place for you. The brains behind the hatted restaurant Ashcrofts in Blackheath have now created a beautiful relaxed dining opportunity in Wentworth Falls. The menu is in its infancy however the signature Ashcrofts dish of Soft Shell Crab remains and is to die for. The prawn pizza is the way to go for the main and as all the locals know, every dessert is a winner.

Service is still awaiting fine tuning however don't be fooled by the claims of Leura restaurants, this leaves the likes of Silks and more importantly Leura Garage for dead.

“A warm welcome to Wentworth Falls”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Wow, what a great night out, from the moment we walked into the new décor, fantastic service and superb food. By dessert we were already full but had to try and wow - at this point this little restaurant became our new local favourite. Well recommended to visit, we will be back to try the different menu items for sure, well done and keep it up.

“Fantastic Addition To Wentworth Falls”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

I must admit that I was taken back by the scathing review prior! I have eaten in this restaurant 3 times and the food and service has been outstanding! The quality of the food is second to none! The service is extremely professional and the most friendly hosts!

I am so glad to see a restaurant in Wentworth Falls that is so popular, even in the short time they have been open, every night the place is full! This is exactly what the village needs! You must try the soft shell crab and the Caribbean prawns (was the special)!

“Best Pizza in The Mountains”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We popped in here on a busy week night. The friendly waitress offered us a shared table and we were seated quickly. Service was friendly, although the younger waitresses seemed a little forgetful, at times preferring to chat to each other, but that was no big deal as the place is small and it was easy to catch their attention.
The pizza, the Luna Blu, was delicious, full of flavour and generously topped. I couldn't fault it and even though we had snacked on salad and garlic bread, we ate every last crumb of the pizza. We naughtily followed up with dessert. And thank goodness we did. The desserts here are worth a visit on their own. Chocolate mousses, lemon curd meringues and more. So so good.
We plan on making regular visits to this lovely place!

“Dinner gone bad.”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

During a weekend in the blue mountains, we decided to try this place out for at the recommendation of some friends we had made. We were just looking for a nice meal after hiking in a nice relaxed environment, nothing more. Well, we're we in for a big disappointment! The evening started out fine, until we got our pizzas. The pizzas were very bland with no taste to them, we had to keep adding salt to get any taste. I have made better pizzas in my own kitchen than what they serve at this restaurant. The service was slow, and my friend had to ask for her glass of wine about 5 times before it made it to the table. The pastas were also very bald and tasteless. I have never eaten such terrible pasta. At one point, the owner of the restaurant who was waitressing spilled my friends beer on him and his 7 year old daughter when she brought it to the table. Her reaction. A quick apology as she lifted the now almost empty bottle and handed it to my friend and walked away to keep serving other customers. We had to ask for napkins to wipe off the mess which took another 10 minutes while my friend and his daughter sat there is beer soaked clothes. The owner of the restaurant never brought out another beer and yet went on to charge us for said beer, an extra glass of,wine and a salad that we never had. Over all a terrible night of dining out. Its one thing to have a busy night with slow service, but our overall experience and treatment by the staff was just terrible.
