    Great food service and atmosphere. Especially loved the camembert...yum. Been visiting this restaurant for over 20 years...never a bad meal. Can't wait to return to this quirky gem.

    I was expecting great food and atmosphere. The venue is tired, cluttered and apart from the view from the few tables next to the windows, really needs an overhaul. Food was similar to what I would have cooked at home 20 years ago: sad salad, average potato rosti etc. Very disappointing.

    I just love the Avalon for its service, staff, setting and look. It’s a beautifully presented place and it is obvious the owners have put in a huge amount of effort. The only thing is and probably the most important for me is that being vegetarian there is not a lot to choose from and the protein content is pretty low. I came home and was hungry. I normally don’t want to be negative about food as we are thoroughly spoilt in Australia compared to third world countries. But we paid good money and to come away unsatisfied is a pity. So next time I go I will be enjoying the atmosphere and service and hoping that what I consume will be satisfying. Thanks Deb

    I came to Avalon a few years ago and thought it was outstanding on all fronts: atmosphere, service, food, wine, value. This time we found the food to be uninspiring, sadly, although everything else was the same. I'll have to be convinced to return.

    The restaurant was nice. Pretty cool decor and set up tastefully. The drinks were delicious and great service. The food was a total let down. It much taste and not worth the price in my opinion.

    Really great place - excellent food, ambience and drinks. Entertainment was great! Was really busy though and service was slow for us, hence why I marked this down. Highly recommend it though.

    We went for dinner with a group of friends who hadn’t seen each other for a while. Unfortunately our table was next to the musicians so it was quite difficult to talk. The music itself was very good, but too loud right up close. The food was good and the portion size was quite large. The staff were charming, but it would have better if they had poured our wine instead of just putting the bottle on the table.

    A bit disappointing, to be honest. Food was meh, service also pretty slow. The decore is cool, and it appears popular with families with kids, but no longer a top dining destination in Katoomba.

    Had a great night of food at this quirky local’s favourite. The ambience was fabulous. The fine dining mood of the 80’s and early 90’s can be enjoyed all over again, with menus to matched!!

    Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Avalon. It never disappoints us. We were very happy with the specials menu as we have tried all the mains on the normal menu. We never miss the banoffee pie. It is delicious!!!
