This is a very pleasant restaurant in the gardens of Lillianfels boutique accommodation. We spent a superb couple of days in the Blue Mountains recently and enjoyed this restaurant so much. The staff were very professional and the atmosphere was relaxed and quiet. The menu was varied and all we chose was of the highest quality ingredients and showed skillful flair in presentation. Service was thoughtful and discreet. This is a very good restaurant.

The image of Escarpment group is not exactly about high end, high quality dedicated service, but Darley's is the laudable exception. The long time manager (whom we know from many previous visits) does miracles and must benefit from some leeway by the "investors".

The facility is perfectly appointed and well upkept. There is a more airy seating on the enclosed verandah and a more classical ambience inside. Tables are impeccably dressed and a deep sense of comfort is felt throughout.

We had two perfect dinners with carefully selected,, not cheap, wines. The executive chef is much present and does a fantastic job which would earn him a Michelin star in Europe. He makes efforts to use locally sourced products distinguished by a special label.

In the second evening they even went from very good to outstanding: The bottle of Leeuwin Estate Arts Collection Chardonnay I ordered two days before was out of stock and they managed to find locally an identical bottle of an even better year served at the same price. I wonder how much they actually had to pay for it......

Darley's is the pride of the Blue Mountains and we will return even not staying at Lilianfels anymore until they fixed the attitude / ownership question.

With stunning views over the gardens & distant views of the mountains, the venue is just perfect. The building itself feels cosy & welcoming.
The staff are very professional but have a relaxed manner, not stuffy.
The tuna entree & lamb main were to die for, matched with a rose for me & red for my partner it was a lovely evening.
It's my new favourite restaurant in the mountains.
