Disappointed

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.

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!

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.

Great wood fired pizzas... Did not try anything else, however all the food coming from the kitchen looked great. In my opinion, they do need to add something more to their menu for kids to eat.

Daylesford eating places can be pricey, but Koukla, with its relaxed cafe style is a pleasant exception. We had pizzas and they were very good. The menu is quite small but if the daily specials are considered along with the regular menu, there is more than pizza on offer. It's the type of place where people drop in for a... More

We had lunch at this venue during a day trip to Daylesford.I noticed that this venue was quite popular specialising in wood-fired pizzas. I had the Anchovy and Olive Pizza and my wife the Potato and Leek Soup with fresh bread. Both meals were very good. Free wifi is offered.

Yum yum yum. We happened across this fabulous place for lunch & it is one with the lot! Great food, delightful staff & good wine. The red eggs are scrumptious and the leek & potato soup was rated very highly . Do yourself a favour & pop in.

Stayed at Fringes. Breakfast at the cafe included in price. Friendly staff and great breakfast options. Try the sweetcorn pancakes with smoked salmon.

We visited for a quick bite over the Easter weekend and shared a simple yet tasty pizza and the ribs!!! Both were delicious and the staff were fantastic!
