Gorge yourself on the region’s delightful array of cuisines!

A wonderland of dense eucalypt forests, underground cave systems, and sprawling mountaintops, the Blue Mountains is truly a worthwhile adventure. Many travellers head into this natural paradise for a day or a weekend escapade, trekking through the lush greenery and on top of the highest peaks. But all this exploring can tire even the fittest traveller out, so the region has made sure to have plenty of food spots to help folk refuel. Offering home-baked sweets, hearty pub foods, and even a couple boozy sites to delight visitor’s taste buds!

  • Darleys

    For a truly indulgent meal within the Blue Mountains, Darleys is your number one choice. Nestled within a spectacular garden setting in a heritage-listed house, the restaurant is a fine dining experience. Winning a number of awards over the years, the restaurant offers both a delicious tasting menu as well as a vast history. Once home to Sir Frederick Darley, the sixth Chief Justice of NSW, with the Lilianfels house perfectly decorated and designed that lures guests from all the world.

  • Leura Garage

    The name may throw you off a bit, but its informal style is what makes this restaurant so worthwhile.

The restaurant encourages tables to share, so bring your partner or posse for an array of delicious treats to try for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

  • Mountain Culture Beer Co

    After only opening its doors last year, this spot has skyrocketed to the top of the Blue Mountains eateries list.
