Open log fire! Need I say more? Service great, food great & modern industrial design. Servings were generous and the menu offered a well-thought out variety to cater for most tastes. Nice spot for brekkie, brunch, lunch and dinner I think.

Friendly staff, good service, nice food. In winter Daylesford is cold but this is a great place to get out of the cold and spend time for a rest.

Greeted by the friendliest, happiest waitress who made us immediately welcome. Her infectious and confident personality together with her efficiency not seen anywhere previously. Handled the entire floor on her own, what a gem! She made our night. We believe her name was Emma. Management count your blessings, other restaurants, eat your heart out!

After a lovely dinner the previous night, we had high expectations for breakfast. Perhaps it wasn't the usual chef but breakfast was half cold, half burnt, cappuccino cold, and service average. Will definitely stay at Frango again, but will choose another location for breakfast.

Have been disappointed before and should have learned but I'm an optimist. Had the grazing plate. The salami was off. Paid for that all the next day. On the up side, the keiserfleisch croquettes were nice.

Really nice restaurant. Very cosy - a heater as well as a large pizza oven. We have had coffee here two mornings. Good wifi. Efficient, friendly service.
