Food was good but serving sizes were ridiculously small. We left hungry.
A beautiful environment in which to enjoy superb food and very good service.
Everything about Darley's was amazing. The building and furnishings are absolutely beautiful. Staff and Food were brilliant.
I would highly recommend everyone to try this Restaurant.
You will not be disappointed.
Very underwhelming, over priced. the food was unsubstantial and the menu and cuisine was dated. Covid excepted the atmosphere was very flat, there was no music to speak of, the service was average. On the whole just a very vanilla experience. Sorry, not the best.
I had a fantastic evening at Darley's. The service was wonderful, and the restaurant itsself is a beautiful renovation of an old building.
The food was amazing! The portions are small, but that is to be expected with fine dining.
Hopefully I'll return in future.
Grandeur, elegance, class, magnificence, opulence! Dinner at Darleys, Lilianfels. Truely a spectacular evening and surroundings❤️
Very nice place, flavour of food amazing! Would return for sure.
We had our Silver Wedding Anniversary here. Seated by a window, with a full moon, delightful food and unobtrusive service, who could ask for more? The Glacier 51 toothfish was divine! Excellent gluten free options for my husband as well, so no complaints from him.
Great quality food, even for a family with kids. Kid’s meal has the same standard as the adult’s.
Everything was beautiful. We really enjoyed our evening.
The restaurant has the style of an older age with quality dining in a comfortable atmosphere. Food and service was excellent. a great place for a memorable meal or celebration.
Darleys was amazing. Some of the best food I have ever eaten. The staff where all incredibly professional and I was happy paying the premium price for that kind of service. Cant wait to go again.
Can't wait to go back - really fantastic food and experience.
Outstanding hotel and restaurant, we've booked a spa at the hotel before dinner! Was just fantastic! The food at the restaurant was well presented and creative. The wine chosen was from 2015 and the selection was excellent! We will definitely come back and perhaps stay for couples of nights!
We were very disappointed. The meal whilst lovely and very special was rushed. Our desserts were served within 65 minutes of us reaching the restaurant. The wine only just made it to the table before the first course and when asked to slow down the dessert so that we could finish our wine, the waiter offered to pour the entire rest of our white wine into our glasses. The dessert was not slowed down and we felt like we were rushed out. We were also very surprised that there was no Covid safe distancing with us sitting within 0.5m of 3 other tables. We would not recommend it and we will not be back.
10 out of 10 very special thanks to all the staff
Lovely visit again for a special occasion, due to portion size being smaller in set menu, would help to have sides available to order.
Fantastic service and great food. Really nice experience.
This was our first time to Darley’s and after the wonderful experience and food it will not be a singular event.
The selection and quality of food, beautifully presented, was among the best we have ever experienced.
Wait staff were present, attentive and a pleasure to talk with.
Thank you for a memorable night
An exquisite meal in a beautiful setting.
The wait staff were excellent, the food was wonderful.
Would recommend this establishment for a special dinner and we will certainly return.
Amazing evening celebrating my 50th birthday with my family. The team at Darleys were wonderful. Service was second to none special mention to Rachael.
Food was just superb!
What a spectacular meal and experience this was! The 3-course menu was divine, the setting and ambience completely and utterly charming. We were served by Carmen who was knowledgeable and friendly throughout. Such a special and magical experience I would recommend to all!
We were seated in a narrow droughty corridor, without any ambiance worse than at McDonald’s . Food was excellent but servings small. Wine list limited.
Still hungry afterwards
Finesse and practicality needs balancing
Beautiful setting, delicious food and great service. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Our dinner was absolutely lovely. The Wagyu beef was cooked to perfection. Our waiter Edward was fantastic.
Dining at Darley's restaurant was a very pleasant experience. Great ambience and service and the food was fantastic.
A set menu with very limited options. Felt very rushed. Waiter was already on his way to our table before we had finished the Covid sign-in. Explanation of the menu was not particularly helpful. Realise this is a difficult time for all but at $250 for two, plus wine, it was a poor experience.
Darley's was a great place to be to get a break from staying at home. We'll be back.
Darley's Restaurant capped off a magnificent couple of days at Lilianfels with a high quality meal and service of unique dishes in a setting with open fires that we will dearly remember.
Menu choice very limited and portion size small. The food quality overall was excellent though. We were seated upstairs where there was little ambience unlike the charming, original house area of downstairs.
The whole experience at Darleys was superb. The staff, the service, the food and the restaurant setting were all just perfect.
The whole experience - from the decor, to the service, to the food itself - was superb. A wonderful evening out in a beautiful location. Highly recommended!
Thoroughly enjoyed our experience Great care taken with the food Taking something as simple as carrots and making it into something so delicious is credit to their skills Looking forward to returning when next in that area
Excellent, exquisite restaurant, must be on your bucket list
Food excellent but portions are ridiculously small. One shouldn't leave a dinner hungry, particularly given the expense of the meal.
Darley’s was one of The reasons for our travel to Katoomba and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. We came with our 2.5 years old and the staff were extremely helpful and lovely. They even arranged for us to have a private room so we didn’t need to feel like bothering other guests. The food was top notch and couldn’t fault a thing. The beef was the most tender ones that we’ve ever tasted. We definitely come back in our next travel.
Lovely food though mains would benefit from the addition of vegetable side dishes. Great service and a beautiful room.
We dined here for our anniversary. The food was superb, and as a coeliac, I was well catered for with gluten free options for the entire menu that still gave me a great choice. The staff were knowledgeable and we were very happy with our experience.
