The service was first class. Choice of menu was quite extensive and caters for most people I would think. Wine selection is also quite extensive. Food absolutely delicious and presented beautifully

Dined on the front porch of the Carrington yesterday and was very disappointed. The service was slow and the food very disappointing. We ordered vegetarian fritters that were uncooked in the middle and the goats cheese and beetroot salad served with the fritters lacked taste and flare. We also ordered soft drinks from the bar which finally arrived after we... More

Back again to the mountains and had to dine at the Carrington. A must do for us whenever we visit. Some restaurants are inconsistent with food and service. The Carrington is always perfection. Autumn menu this time. Entree of Prawns cooked well and my partner had the mushroom entree which he raved about. We both had Fish of the day... More

Beautiful entry into facility, very charming. Our tour guide stopped here for our lunch. We opted to eat in the bar area, very comfortable, and relaxing. We placed our lunch order at the bar. Lunch was very good, no complaints.

This dining room is located in a perfectly presented 1920-30's dining room. The staff are dressed for the period and it was a pleasure to have our sumptuous meals served on the white linen tablecloths all while a grand piano complimented the ambient surroundings. Highly recommended for both the dining experience and the food. Bookings are often required.

The function was brilliant as was the festive Menu. As we numbered 20 we had our own pianist and he played although did not overshadow. The accommodation and buffet breakfast is something to be seen as to try and describe cannot to it justice. Staff were friendly and this was genuine. Going again next year!

Nine of us celebrated a friend's 70th in the gorgeous dining room. The young staff were attentive, helpful and professional. All our meals, including some gluten free options, arrived almost together and were well presented and tasty. A birthday tiramisu cake topped off a lovely evening in wonderful surrounds. Worth another visit any time we can get to Katoomba

Ate dinner here when we had family visiting. Traditional formal decor and old school style service. Food was well prepared, if a little old fashioned, and well presented. Wine list was extensive and surprisingly affordable. Gave our visitors a traditional style Blue Mountains evening. Would take guests here again.

Lovely room with, possibly, 20 foot high ceilings and delightful old furniture. Excellent staff members. There was an option of a la carte or cooked breakfast (extra expense)

If you're looking for a fine dining experience in Katoomba, the dining room in the famous Carrington Hotel is well worth a visit. The special atmosphere is created immediately you step into the corridors of the hotel, where you are surrounded by history and the grand trappings of an eighteenth century icon. The chandeliers, richly patterned carpets, beautiful woodwork and... More
