Darley’s Restaurant (Echo Point) has retained its Good Food Guide Awards ‘hat’ for a 10th year. It is the only restaurant to be donned with the honourable hat in the Blue Mountains.
The coveted status was made all the more prestigious this year after the state honours were broadened to a national awards for the first time.
One of only four hatted restaurants in the Central West region (hats were also awarded to Lolli Redini at Orange, Tonic at Millthorpe and The Zin House at Mudgee), Darley’s achieved an outstanding 15/20 marks.
Darley’s Restaurant at the 5-star Lilianfels Resort & Spa is owned by Escarpment Group, which also owns the neighbouring
Echoes Boutique Hotel & Restaurant, Parklands Country Gardens & Lodges at Blackheath and
the Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath.
Escarpment Group General ManagerRalf Bruegger says: "Darley’s success is the collective work of all its executive chefs,
kitchen staff and wait teams throughout many years.
"Of course, Darley’s consistently serves outstanding food but it is the whole experience – from the moment guests are greeted at the door to when they
are farewelled after their meal, the beverage list, the décor and location – that makes this restaurant exceptional."
The multi award-winning Darley’s Restaurant offers innovative contemporary Australian cuisine showcasing fresh seasonal produce sourced within a 100-mile
radius wherever possible and served as a la carte or degustation menus. With views across the historic formal English gardens and the Jamison Valley escarpment in the background, the former home of sixth Chief Justice of NSWSir Frederick Darley has recently been sumptuously
