“High Class Experience, High Class Prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

My wife and I had lunch at Ashcrofts this month. The food was, as on previous visits,devine, especially the smoked eel strudel. The service was informal and friendly but very efficient and provided plenty of time between courses. Tables in the dining room are well spaced and the room has some interesting photos of Australian arts icons.

An unusal bonus is the art gallery located on the next floor. On enquiry we were encouraged to take a glass of wine and peruse an excellent photography exhibition before returning to our table for tea/coffee.

Sunday lunch at Ashcrofts continues to be at Blackheath in the Blue Mountains must-do but be prepared to pay for the experience. .

“Oh. My. God.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

Last night (10.3.12) was my first, very much long awaited visit to Ashcrofts.

We made a night out of it with three couples celebrating three birthdays.

Now I have read the wonderful reviews and heard the talk about Ashcrofts, and was thrilled to say that our experience was amazing from start to finish.

The service was friendly and super efficient, the staff knowledgeable and unobtrusive.

The food was amazing. Truly oh my God delicious.

My only regret for the evening was being totally unable to fit in dessert!

If you're contemplating a visit then think no more! Book now. Go as soon as you can. Seriously :)

“Superb food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

We celebrated my husband’s birthday at Ashcrofts this evening. It was a very enjoyable dinner. The service was professional and unobtrusive.
We started with soft shell crab tempura and seared Alaskan snow scallop “mignons", and both of us elected to have the twice roasted crispy skin duck served with sliced potatoes and seasonal green vegetables. We were not disappointed! All were beautifully presented and scrumptious with subtle flavours, melting in the mouth.
My husband finished with the house burnt almond ice cream with almond tuile which was equally delicious. Our wines and coffee were a perfect accompaniment. As one would expect it is a little expensive, however it was fully booked out 3 days ahead! Highly recommended for a special occasion.
