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... More

We had a dinner at Darley's during our stay at Lilianfels. It was a special occasion and Darley's was the right place for formal fine dining. Service was exactly as you expect in such places - quite formal, staff very accommodating, prompt and knowledgeable. It was obvious, every one was specially trained how to do their work. Food. Very nice... More

While the overall atmosphere of the restaurant was without equal, our overall experience was quite average. The staff were accommodating enough, but there was no warmth or friendliness; our interactions felt too formal and sterile, leaving us feeling as though we were either being looked down on by snooty staff, or were simply being served by robots. The food was... More

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... More

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... More

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

The ambience and food is first class for fine dining. Portions of complimentary vegetables with meats small - select some side dishes if you are hungry. Pricey but worth it. Good for special occasions.
