We made reservations and had a lovely table overlooking the view of the mountains. There are also tables outside, but people came in as the sun went down to avoid the chill/bugs.
My husband and I shared the escargot and French onion soup soufflé as starters... the escargot were absolutely delicious, and I’d recommend getting the full dozen to share between two.
As mains, we ordered the asparagus velouté (somehow light but satisfying) and the crispy suckling pork. The pork was unbelievable. If you come, order that for sure!
For dessert we ordered the chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream and a cheese plate with bleu cheese. By that point we were stuffed. My husband had wine with everything, and sometimes got great recommendations about pairings from the staff.
The elegant setting, when combined with the view, food, and friendly service made for a very memorable experience. Great for special occasions or lingering meals with friends. I probably wouldn’t bring small kids here as it takes a while to eat, but it’s worth it. We will definitely come back if we are ever in Katoomba again!
