“Great fine dining”
Reviewed 22 February 2017

I've been going to Darley's for decades now and it goes through stages according to which chef is in residence. It is one of the very few fine dining restaurants in the Blue Mountains. Stunning views go with the great menu and excellent wine choice. I find it strange they don't open for lunch. Personally I think it's best in the cold of winter so you can enjoy the warm fires. Current fave dish is the Toothfish, even if it's just for the accompanying story from the waiter.

“Great food but not mind blowing”
Reviewed 21 February 2017

My wife & I enjoyed the food but I was expecting a bit more given its reputation and "hatted" status. It is the type of restaurant menu that you would find in restaurants attached to similar 5 star hotels and food can't be faulted. Probably a bit over priced for what it is but to be expected when attached to a 5 star hotel.

The food and atmosphere was amazing. This not a place to go if you in a hurry. You sit enjoy a glass of wine and really take in the food

“Excellent food”

Excellent food. Service good but Australian! Not quite what we expect in the U.K.! Prices high but worth it if you want first class food
