“Special Dinner”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely. It is situated in an old home that has been tastefully renovated. Everything was beautiful, from the dinner plates to the stained glass windows. The food is locally sourced and beautifully prepared. I would recommend it for a special occasion or for simply spoiling yourself.

“Luxurious Dinning”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Darley's is a grand dinning experience located in Lilianfels Hotel. The Menu and wine list were excellent. I appreciated the unique menu items that really excited my palate. The service was excellent. The restaurant itself had a luxurious feel with dark wall paper and a glorious fire. A perfect evening.

“An interesting experience”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Eating here in April without a fire or the advantage of daylight saving I thought the atmosphere of the restaurant was a little bland. As mentioned in other reviews the cost of alcohol is very expensive and whilst this may be consistent with other upmarket restaurants, this is Katoomba not Woollahra. It just makes the dining experience that much more expensive (over $300 for three courses for two people with wine). Our food was lovely, we found the menu to be interesting. My dessert of figs with almond ice-cream was exquisite. Reading other reviews it appears that diners have different expectations of when to refill wine and water glasses - I find it intrusive to have my glass refilled every time I take a sip. Next time in a similar situation I will ask to have the bottle left on the table to avoid this awkwardness. Staff were friendly and efficient - overall a very positive experience.
