Casual
Aunty Ed's (formerly known as Aunty Jack's) is Katoomba's hottest casual space for sharing plates and good times! The restaurant is fully licensed offering a great selection of local tinnies, regional wines and old-school cocktails. The kids will be kept happy with a range of milkshakes and spiders that can be upgraded to a 'big kids' version with any choice of spirit or liqueur.
The menu is inspired by classic Australian meals 'like mum used to make', as well as the Mountain's best burgers and crunchy chips!

Excellent foot, ambience and service. It's like you travel back in time. We also tried the warm cocktail with the wine and it was outstanding. We' ll definitely go back next time we are at Blue Mountains!

We had a week up at blue mountains and our dinner meal at Aunty Ed’s was very very good. The beef brisket was delicious. They even had gluten free beer. Best meal we had all week. Loved the ambience, the music, the staff. My girls had a great time and enjoyed their burgers.

This Quirky 70s inspired theming and simple menu is easy to please most people.
Family friendly.
Moderate pricing.
Food could be better but the restaurant itself is what makes it a worthwhile trip

All of the staff at Aunty Ed's are amazing and the whole experience of drinking and dinning is fantastic. On this visit we had our kid's with us and our waitress was excellent with them - engaging, getting them involved in choosing their food and drinks etc. Just perfect. This time around we also had some dietary requirements to accommodate and our waitress was brilliant at guiding us on the options, making sure we understood what was available and what certain dishes, sides and sauces contained.

This was my first time dining at Aunty Ed's, and I have to say what an amazing first impression!

The ambience, the serving sizes, the quality of the food and drink, and the service were impeccable.

I look forward to coming back again and again - like our friendly waitress said: It's not a menu, it's a checklist! Gotta try them all 😊

Highly recommended!

More options for Veggos would be good. overall the lighting is good - but the decor is a bit kidsy - the booths are good but we were down on the floor and it's got a real school desk kind of vibe to it which isn't amazing.

Some of the friendliest, smiley, and welcoming staff my partner and I have experienced. The service was quick, drink selection broad and food was very tasty, although it would be nice to see more vegetarian options on the menu. Thank you all for a lovely dinner experience :~))

Service was friendly and efficient. Live music was great and at the perfect volume. Absolutely loved all the gluten free options, but unfortunately found the burger patty a bit dry/overcooked (particularly for the price).

Just remember when they offer you sauce with your meal you will be charged for it.

Responded on 27 May 2021

Hey Jennifer! Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. All our prices are on the menu and we definitely don't charge for standard sauces, only if you order any of our housemade vegan aioli/sweet chilli mayo or gravy.

What amazing service! Easy to book, and to change that booking at short notice. The warm cider was next level amazing. Everyone love their meals, but the pulled pork burger was a bit “wet” for me. We really, really wanted to try the amazing looking desserts but were too full’ will definitely be back again!

We really loved celebrating our wedding anniversary at Aunty Ed’s. We went on Sunday night when they was live music and loved it. The food was yummy and the service was really great. We will definitely go back. Really appreciated being able to get vegan and gluten free food that wasn’t just a salad or chips!
