This is a restaurant full of character, different rooms to sit in. Lots on the menu (wine included). We had a chef's selection. It was basically a degustatation. I have food intolerances & allergies; the chef was totally accommodating, changing and adapting courses with no drama at all. The food was fantastic. I have to say the eye fillet would... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Wednesday night.. $50 per person for 5 courses with a sparkling wine included. The food was absolutely delicious, presented beautifully and good portion size. A bonus was the cocktails at happy hour b/w 4-6pm only $10! I had a 'cosmopolitan' so good had a second. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Service very slow. Only ordered 6 fresh oysters. Took more than 30 minutes to come out and it was not at all busy. Beer was a bit ordinary as well. Then was told that our order had been misplaced. Then another table gets served ours. Very very bad service. It seems no one knows what's going on.

The Perfect Drop is set in an original house that has been transformed into a restaurant and bar. There are little secluded niches where you can enjoy a quiet dinner. The menu includes so many choices that one needs to go back to try something else. Many ingredients are sourced locally. The food easily rivals the best restaurants in Melbourne.... More

Went looking for a nice evening meal, and found it here. Arrived in time for happy hour (4 -6 pm, $10 cocktails and $1 oysters - yum!). Then offered the $50 special - 5 courses + a drink, which saved choosing from the full menu. First 3 courses were served tapas style for sharing, then main and dessert. Very enjoyable,... More

My partner and I made a reservation at the ever so popular Perfect Drop for dinner last night and were completely blown away with every aspect of our meals, the service and the extensive wine and drinks list! We started with the Perfect Drop shareplate - The standout for me was the beautiful bresaola coupled with the homemade goats cheese... More

This was one of the biggest disappointments we have ever experienced in the 25 years with have been visiting the town. The food was average -priced around 5-10 above what it should have been. We found the service quite unusual as all the wait staff wanted to do was to sign us up for three courses . It was pushy... More

We are all locals and went to the $50 Wednesday night 5 courses with glass of wine. The food and presentation was amazing. Every dish mouth watering and of a very high standard. Service was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble and even when we found out at the last minute that our group of 8 booked was only 7,... More
