Darley's Restaurant at Lilianfels Blue Mountains
Outstanding hotel and restaurant, we've booked a spa at the hotel before dinner! Was just fantastic! The food at the restaurant was well presented and creative. The wine chosen was from 2015 and the selection was excellent! We will definitely come back and perhaps stay for couples of nights!
We were very disappointed. The meal whilst lovely and very special was rushed. Our desserts were served within 65 minutes of us reaching the restaurant. The wine only just made it to the table before the first course and when asked to slow down the dessert so that we could finish our wine, the waiter offered to pour the entire rest of our white wine into our glasses. The dessert was not slowed down and we felt like we were rushed out. We were also very surprised that there was no Covid safe distancing with us sitting within 0.5m of 3 other tables. We would not recommend it and we will not be back.
10 out of 10 very special thanks to all the staff
Lovely visit again for a special occasion, due to portion size being smaller in set menu, would help to have sides available to order.
Fantastic service and great food. Really nice experience.
This was our first time to Darley’s and after the wonderful experience and food it will not be a singular event.
The selection and quality of food, beautifully presented, was among the best we have ever experienced.
Wait staff were present, attentive and a pleasure to talk with.
Thank you for a memorable night
An exquisite meal in a beautiful setting.
The wait staff were excellent, the food was wonderful.
Would recommend this establishment for a special dinner and we will certainly return.
Amazing evening celebrating my 50th birthday with my family. The team at Darleys were wonderful. Service was second to none special mention to Rachael.
Food was just superb!
What a spectacular meal and experience this was! The 3-course menu was divine, the setting and ambience completely and utterly charming. We were served by Carmen who was knowledgeable and friendly throughout. Such a special and magical experience I would recommend to all!
We were seated in a narrow droughty corridor, without any ambiance worse than at McDonald’s . Food was excellent but servings small. Wine list limited.
Still hungry afterwards
Finesse and practicality needs balancing
Beautiful setting, delicious food and great service. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Our dinner was absolutely lovely. The Wagyu beef was cooked to perfection. Our waiter Edward was fantastic.
Dining at Darley's restaurant was a very pleasant experience. Great ambience and service and the food was fantastic.
A set menu with very limited options. Felt very rushed. Waiter was already on his way to our table before we had finished the Covid sign-in. Explanation of the menu was not particularly helpful. Realise this is a difficult time for all but at $250 for two, plus wine, it was a poor experience.
Darley's was a great place to be to get a break from staying at home. We'll be back.
Darley's Restaurant capped off a magnificent couple of days at Lilianfels with a high quality meal and service of unique dishes in a setting with open fires that we will dearly remember.
Menu choice very limited and portion size small. The food quality overall was excellent though. We were seated upstairs where there was little ambience unlike the charming, original house area of downstairs.
The whole experience at Darleys was superb. The staff, the service, the food and the restaurant setting were all just perfect.
The whole experience - from the decor, to the service, to the food itself - was superb. A wonderful evening out in a beautiful location. Highly recommended!
Thoroughly enjoyed our experience Great care taken with the food Taking something as simple as carrots and making it into something so delicious is credit to their skills Looking forward to returning when next in that area
Excellent, exquisite restaurant, must be on your bucket list
Food excellent but portions are ridiculously small. One shouldn't leave a dinner hungry, particularly given the expense of the meal.
Darley’s was one of The reasons for our travel to Katoomba and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. We came with our 2.5 years old and the staff were extremely helpful and lovely. They even arranged for us to have a private room so we didn’t need to feel like bothering other guests. The food was top notch and couldn’t fault a thing. The beef was the most tender ones that we’ve ever tasted. We definitely come back in our next travel.
Lovely food though mains would benefit from the addition of vegetable side dishes. Great service and a beautiful room.
We dined here for our anniversary. The food was superb, and as a coeliac, I was well catered for with gluten free options for the entire menu that still gave me a great choice. The staff were knowledgeable and we were very happy with our experience.
Good vegan options, although would have liked some carbs as it was all vegetables. Cauliflower steak was amazing and the coconut sorbet with fennel was creative.
Excellent service and beautiful venue - well worth the effort.
Lovely decor and ambiance backed up with delicious food.
The food was excellent - however the servings were very small compared to other fine dining restaurants.
My serving of fish was not much bigger than a fish finger!
Beautiful place, nice food and the staff are friendly too.
The customer service on the phone in the lead up was a nightmare. No one returned my calls or emails and was disappointed the menu had been changed to a set three course even thought we had booked before this came into effect. Restaurant staff lovely.
Spectacular restaurant. We’ve been there 3 times now and it never disappoints.
I booked my table two weeks in advance, we were one of the first guests to arrive and were given the worst table in house! Waiter really did not want to be there! Entre was Pastrami Beetroot which was 5 very thin slices of beetroot probably from the tin that was marinated, not much cooking involved as well as there were not much to eat! Main and Desert were OK but nothing to be excited about! Tea and coffee was offered to us after we had desert! No side dishes! Vine List incredibly overpriced! Will not go back in a hurry and will not recommend to anyone !
The food was incredible - particularly the toothfish! Service was pretty good - a little slow at times. It was a pity that we were seated next to a very loud couple who had a little too much to drink which disturbed the atmosphere.
We have eaten at Darleys 3 times now and love it every time. Absolutely delicious food and beautiful location.
Food portions are too small. I've been to multiple fine dining restaurants and have always been full but not at Darley's.
Food ok, wine on.
Amazing service in a beautiful restaurant.
If two people, ask for a table near the fireplace for dinner.
I have visited this restaurant serval times over the past 10 years. It is still good however it’s certainly not as good as it used to be nor does it have the same vibe. Used to have a fantastic bar tender who was a mixologist- he was great so much fun. We had such a great time last time that we thought we would come again. However the staff are now very serious some even seemed stressed. No sense of humour.
The food was good but not great. Used to have a fantastic chefs and the food was memorable. I feel there may be a change of management along with Lilanfels. Certainly not as good as it used to be. However the decore is Still fantastic !
A lovely experience. Beautiful food, impeccable service, gorgeous location
Everything was very good except one thing: portions.
Now, I understand it is a fine dining and I am not expected to get out of this place full.
But seriously, at least after leaving the restaurant I should not feel like i need to step in another restaurant.
Delicious food, ok.... but two, and I mean two small pieces of wagyu beef are not enough.
