We had the eye fillet and lamb and both were superb. Service was good. Couldn't fault it. Maybe request a table by the window as the view is stunning and book a table in advance as it is very popular.

Very nice place. Trying to be upscale with table cloths and napkins but atmosphere needs some work. Servers would not let us sit and just drink our wine. Had to order. Several stopped and wanted our order. Keep telling them we will let them know...More

This is an absolute MUST when visiting the Blue Mountains. What is delightful about the Upper Mountains, is the Art Deco architecture, the 1920's hey-day and the comforts of a chilly evening. The Avalon totally evokes this energy. The meals are generous (unlike so many!)...More

Set in the historic Savoy picture theatre building, Avalon Restaurant & Cocktail Bar at Katoomba combines playful art-deco charm with hearty food, friendly service and spectacular Blue Mountains views. Located on main street Katoomba, enter the historic Savoy picture theatre foyer and make your way past the ticket booth and up the stairs. The restaurant inhabits the dress circle of the old theatre, and offers a decor of quirky retro finds and spectacular mountain views over Leura and the Jamison Valley. Meals are prepared in the old projection room, and cocktails and retro tunes are served in the former refreshment lounge, now a cosy bar complete with roaring fireplace. The art deco architecture is complemented by an eclectic collection of furnishings and artwork. The style of service is casual and friendly. Licensed and BYO wine.
