DETAILS

Solitary occupies one of the most fortunate sites in the Blue Mountains, perched above the Leura Cascades on the scenic Cliff Drive between Leura and Katoomba. The dining room and garden offer views which extend uninterruptedly across Jamison Valley to the Southern Highlands. The building is heritage listed; a slate hipped-roofed, weatherboard Blue Mountains cottage, the tranquil interior flooded with an abundance of natural light.

FOOD & BEVERAGE
Solitary is home to both a kiosk and a restaurant. The kiosk menu is quaint and English in inspiration. A Stilton rarebit grilled sandwich with shaved ham and branston pickle makes a comforting lunch, but nothing says cosy more than scones with house made jam, double cream and a pot of leaf tea. The restaurant is a more refined affair, with three course al a carte options. A hybrid of traditional technique and Modern Australian flair, you may dine on the likes of seared eye fillet with mushroom duxelle, gorgonzola bread pudding and grebiche butter to chocolate panna cotta with glazed figs, rosewater meringues & pomegranate.

We dined in this Restaurant last night with some friends and our 12 yr old daughter. We all live in the Lower Mountains and decided to have a Friday evening watching the sunset in what appeared to be a lovely Restaurant.IT NEVER DISAPPOINTED, in all areas from the most wonderful food, scenery and the staff were second to none. In fact we were outside taking pics and one of the ladies just quietly wondered up and asked if she could take some pics for us...We will all be back and please thank the chiefs and all in the kitchen for such delicious food. The prices were very reasonable for what we had. Thank you.
