Well named for its position on a cliff top in splendid isolation, is the beautiful and unique Solitary Restaurant located at Leura Falls in the Blue Mountains.

[ADVERT]Exclusive in its location, Solitary Restaurant offers quite possibly some of the best views available in the Blue Mountains, overlooking the Jamison Valley through to the Southern Highlands uninterrupted.

Solitary has a more casual kiosk option, as well as the fine dining restaurant, and is housed within a heritage listed weatherboard cottage, featuring a characteristically slate hipped-roof, and set amongst a beautiful garden on a hill top.
The interior can, described as light, airy, quietly sophisticated and tranquil, while respecting the history of the building – offering a mix of federation and contemporary style decor.

The huge glass windows allow diners to take in the other-worldly views from both the kiosk or restaurant options. Outdoor seating can also be arranged subject to availability when booking, for an unforgettable mountain top interlude.

Solitary Restaurant offers a fresh and sophisticated modern Australian menu with the charm you would expect from a lovely country cottage.

Upon arrival the Chef has prepared a complimentary sweet corn and basil soup to tempt the taste-buds, and is a great start for the dishes to follow.

The Salmon Gravalax entrée is a simple cured salmon style dish, but the flavours are elevated with the clever inclusion of Gruyere cheese balls, avocado creme and slithers of fennel shavings with a pernod vinigarette for $19.

Another top option from the Entrée menu is the Goats Chevre Ravioli,with asparagus, crushed hazelnuts, and buerre niosette which a beautiful creamy taste and texture for $18.

Mains are also impressive, and of particular note is the seared Beef Eye Fillet served with mushroom duxelle, gorgonzola bread pudding, and grebiche butter for $31. The flavours combined are sensational is a must try dish.

The Confit of duck leg, with chestnut risotto, Brussel sprouts, spec and cream fraiche for $30 is another tasty and different option to try.

The desserts are also excellent. For $14 the Poached pistachio pear with passion fruit panna cotta and pina colada sorbet, and the Toffee and banana crumble tartlette, with Belgium chocolate ice-cream are worth sampling.

The fine food, professional and efficient staff and amazing surroundings of Solitary Restaurant all contribute towards a rewarding and memorable dining experience not to be missed.
