Darley's is without exception the best restaurant in the mountains and would be a top ten venue in Sydney or anywhere. The ambiance is delightful, the staff highly professional, attentive but non-invasive. The menu is excellent and the food itself as good as anywhere I have been, including among the best in New York, London, Rome, Zurich, Hong Kong... etc. I have been there numerous times over the years and the standard has and remains rock solid. A get away to the mountains is incomplete without a dinner at Darleys.

We dined here the night after we ate at Echoes, the sister restaurant. While Echoes has the knock out view, Darleys is def the fine dinning restaurant. Service was impressive, very attentive and professional without being stuffy. Food was incredible. We had the three course option and all dishes were cooked perfectly and the presentation, second to none. At a similar price to Echoes, we'd def return to Darleys first.

Our party of four staying at the Echoes Boutique hotel next to Darley's restaurant were treated to a gastronomic treat.
The menu choice was very good and the whole experience eating here was a delight.
Service from the serving staff was excellent, friendly and they made our evening complete.
Don't miss it .

Although expensive this restaurant offers a wonderful atmosphere and a delicious well thought out modern Australian menu. Meals are offered in two or three courses or as a degustation option. We had the three course option. The ingredients are sourced locally. The restaurant is located in a beautiful old home (circa 1850s) with plenty of character. The restaurant is part of the Lillianfels complex. Staff are friendly and attentive. I recommend it for a special occasion or simply as a treat.
