The Best Restaurants in the Blue Mountains to Try

From opulent fine dining to casual eats, these are the best restaurants in the Blue Mountains you need to visit!

Megalong Restaurant at LOT101

There are countless reasons to visit the Blue Mountains, and our favourite one is: to feast! From Katoomba and Leura and Blackheath and Blaxland, the Blue Mountains are a secret foodie mecca.

Whatever village you visit, you won’t find chains and major outlets; instead, you’ll fall into food comas at award-winning restaurants, sampling fresh produce from local growers and supporting small businesses whose goal is to make your foodie getaway a memorable one.

Here’s your guide to the best restaurants in the Blue Mountains.
