We had dinner but we will be back for a lunch to see the property in the daylight. We had a very enjoyable experience with great looking and tasting food with knowledgable, attentive but unobtrusive staff. Recommend duck, scallops, goat and for dessert the pear - looking like a toadstool in a garden. Lovely inside the restaurant and the tables... More

Attended a group lunch after a truffle hunt, outstanding food, service and attention to detail. Beautiful location for all seasons with its own lake. They cater for group bookings and functions.

We went to Sault on a Wednesday which is their 'locals night' whereby the menu changes each week with only a selection of 4 mains, plus the chefs special to choose from all of which come with a glass of wine. It was just bad luck that my partner and I weren't overly excited by the dishes this particular night.... More

Sault was the perfect escape from a dreary, cold and rainy afternoon. It has a wonderful warm & friendly atmosphere, and a beautiful view. I would love to come back in spring or on a clearer day to see more of the lavender fields and the grounds. Top class service and the food was divine. Thank you!

My word, how fortunate we are to have an extraordinary restaurant in our own town Daylesford. The food was exceptional, I had the pork, which was perfectly cooked, and the crackle was to die for. The side of Brussels sprouts were so tasty but do not go past the potatoes, I have never tasted anything like them! My 2yr old... More

We booked for dinner while we were in Daylesford and it's definitely worth the trip. It's slightly outside the town but a taxi is easy enough to source and the restaurant will take care of it for your return journey. The staff are excellent, attentive without being over-bearing and very knowledgeable about the menu. There is a huge choice on... More

Went there for a special occasion on a very cold and foggy daylesford day. Upon entering, there's a relaxed warmth welcoming u, but this doesn't diminish the classy interior and smart menu. As a celiac the kitchen was very accommodating, plenty of options and flexibility without the attitude that I often get! Tapas are generous (don't go past the potato... More

First off this restaurant has great views over the lake and local countryside. - pity we had the table in the middle of the main room so I was looking at a brick wall, even though it did have a beautiful painting. The other guests did get the view however. Food was top class with a very wide range of... More

You must try the Spanish Omelette. One of the best things I have ever eaten. Steak was lovely, wine list is nice and big. Service was very good also. Could not fault the entrees and mains. Dessert was quite good but was the least impressive course. Would def recommend.

If you go to Daylesford, do not pass up the opportunity to visit Sault Restaurant. This was easily one of the better meals I have ever had and I am sure they are on their way to being a hated restaurant. The service too was impeccable and I could not ask anymore of a restaurant. I have been to many... More
