On the 18th of October we held a hens night at The Perfect Drop which was defiantly a night to remember thanks to the lovely owners and staff! It was such a busy night for them and they still continually went out of their way to make sure our night was filled with amazing food, delicious cocktails and wine, a... More

Came to the Perfect Drop, after seeing a brilliant review on their Espresso Martini! Espresso Martini was delish, yet when we went to order a second round, we were told 'as you can see the bar is full,(...with patrons) there will be quite a delay, so I recommend you choose a wine'... Sorry?!? We came for the renowned espresso martini-... More

Hello and thank you for your feedback. Although we were extremely busy in 4 dining rooms and our outside courtyard all weekend, I have checked with all staff and none remember this to have occurred. I would really like to follow up with you. Can you please email me on christine@theperfectdrop.com to help me further with this matter. Thanks, Christine More

We had dinner here one weekend back in June and had a great evening. We shared the tapas dishes, which were different but very well explained and tasted wonderful. Wine list was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and professional. There was live music the night we were there and it made for a very atmospheric and enjoyable cold... More

This is the most terrible restaurant experience I have ever had. We arrived just after 6pm Jan 1st after having called and finding out that 6pm was their opening time. It was a very cold, rainy day. When we arrived we were told we had to wait outside despite it being past 6mp as they were rearranging furniture. We waited... More

Hello, I'm not even sure how to respond to this correctly. First of all if that happened in our restaurant then I am terribly sorry. We do have a special New Years dinner followed by Daylesfords largest party New Year's Eve which finishes at 4am, however we have cleaners come in and restore the restaurant during the day. I have...

We had an amazing evening here. We started with a recommended Chardonnay that was sensational and a confit duck and potato terrine. Then I had the heirloom beet roots, blue cheese, honey alioli and my partner had the calamari. Followed by slow cooked beef and she had the organic chicken. The food, wine, service and atmosphere were superb. We cannot... More

From the moment I booked The Perfect Drop for a surprise 50th birthday I knew I had booked the Perfect restaurant. the food, the wine, the atmosphere and the service was exceptionable. I would recommend The Perfect Drop to everyone 11/10 :)

The perfect drop lives up to its name. They make terrific cocktails AND shuck their own oysters !! ( note that these are $ 10 and $ 1 each respectively between 4-6 pm.) But that is not all , they have great food. The best thing though is definitely the music. It starts at 6 pm with a warm and... More

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
