After two awesome pub meals the nights before, we were looking forward with anticipation to our meal at the highly regarded Perfect Drop. The Drop itself -- the wine - was excellent (Perfect Drop Chardonnay), but the menu lacked a little punch. A small offering of main course options pushed one to the tasting plates, which themselves are a great... More

Liked it all but the guitar player could be discontinued. This seems to be a converted old house. Very well done in restoration in gold rush period style. Don't want to appear harsh on the guitar player but I just don't like being inflicted with any musician while I am having dinner and trying to engage in conversation with the... More

Highly recommend trying this restaurant! Fantastic food, friendly staff and a lovely vibe. There's also a live band so makes for a fab evening out!

we visited here twice during our stay in Daylesford on the recommendation of friends. We took advantage both evenings of the Happy Hour which runs from 4-6pm every night with $10 cocktails and $1 oysters. The cocktails are really great and taste much stronger than a lot of watered down ones you get. The oysters were also really fresh and... More

A beautiful restaurant with intimate tables, cosy couches by the fire. The food is French style, beautifully presented. We shared three tasting plates, really just for a snack rather than a full meal. The beetroot was divine, dipped into a horseradish sauce. The band was excellent. Staff were attentive. The gaps between the tables made exit difficult. Thankfully those tables... More

There may be no doubt that this is a fine restaurant, but not on this occasion! Pressured to dine at the early session (6pm), and with the promise that our table would be available from 5pm. Dine at 6pm and the open fire would be burning and a jazz band would be playing. Come and enjoy happy hour we were... More

Nice place to go at night.... maybe the only place to go at night! The food is good and they are getting a bit more reasonable with their prices. I like the $1 oysters!

we sat by the fire and shared a number of share plates and a great glass of red wine or two. Food and friendly staff were great. Well worth a meal at this place.
