The Blue Mountains Restaurants

Ashcrofts

Fodor's Review

Nestled amid the antiques and vintage shops of Blackheath village, this acclaimed restaurant looks a little like a Parisian bistro, although the black-and-white photographs on the wall are of prominent Australians. Sydneysiders and locals turn up for Sunday lunch or dinner to feast on the two-course (A$78) or three-course (A$90) menus. You might start with a spring salad of honey-baked beetroot, house-made labneh, candied walnuts with tea-soaked muscats, and hibiscus vinaigrette,

or the Egyptian-spice quail on Cape Malay carrot remoulade with sticky-eggplant jam. Mains include fish pie with wild sea scallops, tiger prawns, and fennel-infused snapper velouté, and slow-roasted crispy-skin duck with Persian aromatics and citrus flavors. If you like the food and enjoy a good laugh, tpick up a copy of co-owner Mary-Jane Craig's book, Consummate, which combines recipes with humor and quirky observations.
