Had the most beautiful meal here on Tuesday night. We did the locals night vegetarian 5 course chef's selection and the food was outstanding. Fresh produce, delicious combinations of flavours, and the perfect amount of food – all for $50! Staff were very accommodating. It's hard to find anywhere open in Daylesford on Tuesday night, but I would recommend the... More

I can't say enough great things about this place. Venue is cosy, food amazing, service outstanding and the live music perfect. For me the duck main and homemade liquorice allsort ice cream were the pick. It's a must.

Returning for a "locals' night" meal for the first time after a couple of disappointing prior visits, I was pleased to thoroughly enjoy quality food and efficient, friendly and, yet, unobtrusive service. The wine list is probably the best in town. Hooray.

Perfect Drop is a great restaurant all round. We recently visited for our 45th Wedding Anniversary and enjoyed a wonderful 5 course Degustation Dinner with matching wines. The food for the Degustation was superb. The waiting staff were excellent and the courses were not served too closely together. The ambience of the restaurant is really good with lovely decor in...

We were here last Sat with my mother in law and 6yr old, while the menu did not specify kids meals, they do have two should you need. The food was fabulous, really tasty, well presented and good portions. The service and ambience great with some wonderful jazz in the background. The bread and olive oil was divine. Couldn't manage... More

We were very impressed with this restaurant.. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. There was a duo/band playing outside also which we really enjoyed on a beautiful Summer's night.. Not sure why this place is only #10 in daylesford. We could not fault our experience!
