Silk's Brasserie

Silk's Brasserie

Fine dining since 1994...

The award-winning Silk's Brasserie is located in the heart of historic Leura village in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

This historical mountain building with its sensuous interior of washed warm ochre walls, chequerboard floors, high ceilings and winter fireplace is partnered with an attention to detail. Crisp, linen clad tables, a smart wine list and the aroma of bread baking on the premises compliment this sophisticated yet intimate restaurant.

Built about 100 years ago around the time of Australia’s Federation, the handsome building which accommodates Silk’s has been the home to many business ventures over the decades. In 1905 it was Mrs Brennan’s greengrocer’s shop, and if you can catch the afternoon light it’s still possible to read the words ‘Ceylon Tea’ and ‘Potatoes’ on the old glass of the front window – a reminder of the shop’s history.

Over the ensuing decades the building variously housed the office of Leura Taxis, a shoe shop and an antique store run by a gentleman named Renzo Lupano.

In 1991 the building was converted in to a restaurant named La Sala by Reg Livermore, a long-time Mountains resident. He installed the impressive Parisian-style bar and the smart black and white chequerboard floor - still major features of our dining room decor.

In 1994 the restaurant was bought by Graham and Erin Silk who changed the name to Silk’s Brasserie and operated it until 2001 when they sold the business, leaving it with its now-famous name.

How To Get Here..

Silks address is 128 The Mall, Leura. The Mall is the main street of the village (and should not be confused with a shopping mall in the more modern sense!). We're opposite the railway station and across the road from Westpac Bank. Leura is an easy 2-hour drive from the centre of Sydney via the M4 motorway and The Great Western Highway. Turn left when you see the sign to "The Mall, Leura" and look for us on the left, just down from the top roundabout.
