Excellent Food & Service With Nice Live Music

There was a live band on the Friday night, but the venue was small beside the dining room. We had a drink there before going into the dining room as this small venue started to fill up. We could hear the band in the dining room. We had 5-course share set menu, and every course was delicious... read more

Michele from the Forget Me Not Garden Cottages recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We had the $1 oyster shots and $10 cocktails in their happy hour from 4-6 and ended up having a meal in the outside dining area as they have free bands

We visit regularly and the food and service are consistently good. Try some sharing platters we have never had one we have not liked. On weekends there is live music which gives a great ambience. Wednesday nights locals night- but everyone is welcome- l think it is $ 50 per person with a glass of bubbles and 5 courses. Great... More

We felt like we were doing something wrong here. Seeking out a place for a quiet pre dinner-drink, it took us awhile to get someones attention for a seat. Then our waiter seemed to get quite irritated when we asked questions, or ordered food. We asked for gluten free bread that never came, cocktails came out separately (ten-fifteen minutes apart)...

I am loving the new menu! Good portion sizes, amazing flavours and as always, perfect service! I ordered the set menu so there was so much amazing food to share with my friend. Its a full range of succulent flavours! My favourite restaurant in town by far!

Had a fabulous experience dining here. The most creative tasty local produce and ambient surroundings. The staff and management make you feel at home. Also, free entertainment makes for an even richer experience.

Can't comment on the food as we popped in for drinks. Espresso Marrinis very good, can't say we were overly welcomed in by the pretentious man running the show but it did look like nice food.

It might not be obvious as far as location goes because The Perfect Drop is not right in the heart of Daylesford, although it is still very close by. We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and went there for a long lazy Saturday lunch. It was fabulous. The staff took us to a table in the back as... More
