Blue Mountains Dining

Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa, Blue Mountains

Award-winning top-rated restaurants are a feature of the Blue Mountains, with committed chefs attracted by the abundant, quality local and seasonal produce. The unassuming Restaurant Como, set at the foot of the Mountains, is one such restaurant, a fixture of the dining scene here, with an inspired menu of Modern Australian fare and degustation delicacies.

It’s simple food expertly rendered at Sean Moran and Michael Robertson’s Tomah Gardens Restaurant. The views here are breathtaking and the food is something to write home about; homey and comforting yet next level. Word is spreading quickly about their Modern Australian fare featuring succulent roast chicken, perfectly-cooked greens and classic french dessert.

The Blue Mountains also has a buzzing cafe scene. Be sure to check out The Paragon, a nostalgic art-deco cafe in Katoomba that’s been in business since 1916. The dining room is out the back, and the front rooms are set aside for coffee, tea, dessert, and hand-crafted chocolates. Another option is the popular and hip Leura Garage, a post-industrial diner serving up casual tapas-style and cafe food morning, noon and night.

But in The Blue Mountains some old pleasures never fade. High Tea at the famous Hydro Majestic in Medlow Bath, an elegant hotel with its spectacular views overlooking the Megalong Valley, is one such treat, with freshly-made scones, gorgeous cakes and an old-world atmosphere.

Echos Restaurant in Katoomba is also blessed with spectacular views, serving up Asian-influenced modern Australian cuisine made with fresh and local produce. Or why not go for lunch on the verandah of an old country pub? Try the Grand View Hotel in Wentworth Falls, which also has a cosy fireplace.
