Popped in here after our wine tour for cocktails and dinner. Happy hour is 4-7 for $10 cocktails and so we availed ourselves to a few of these and a sharing platter. Thought we'd stay for dinner, the food was delicious but the portions were incredibly small and at 30 bucks a plate and no sides included we had to... More

Great for a casual drink after a wine tour or day out and about. Perhaps this place does scrub up a little better in the evening. Whilst the drinks were lovely and cold and the service quite fine, it did feel a little grubby. We were there on a really hot day in the afternoon and it did feel like... More

Popped in because it looked interesting and were blown away by the quality of the food. We had the pork cutlet and the chicken saltimbocca. ..just sublime. For desert we had the eton mess (rubard ) and the chocolate surprise. Both excellent. Wines were reasonable prices. Not take away prices but then the quality is top shelf.

My husband and I booked dinner at the Perfect Drop for NYE and we were very impressed. They had a set menu, 5 courses @ $125 pp which we deemed reasonable. The food was delicious and they were incredibly accommodating to my pregnancy dietary requirements. They even put together a couple of mocktails for me to enjoy to ensure I... More

Had to ask to order our mains, also had to ask for the door to be closed because it was getting cold in the restaurant oh and for the clean... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the owners of "The Balconies" as one of their preferred eating options. When we arrived we were greeted immediately and seated outside initially, but as the weather changed we moved to an intimate booth inside. We were undecided as to our menu and asked Liz to treat us to her choices for degustation. It... More

These guys were terrific. We had just had a dreadful night in another restaurant where we waited over an hour for food. The PD served us a fantastic meal even though they were about to close their kitchen. I had the beef cheek and it just melted. It was such a perfect end to our break away in Daylesford. Thank...

Do not pass this place in Daylesford! The cute courtyard draws you in but the food and atmosphere keep you there. We were lucky enough to stumble in for lunch. Loved the food so much we went back for dinner. A great selection of dishes all locally sourced. A must do!

One of the things that makes visiting Spatown of Daylesford-Hepburn a real treat is that there are many places in these villages where the business owner are 'hands on'... How refreshing to visit PD where Christine and Richard share smiles and stories and invest time/energy in there customers. As a local resident & business operator I love the following things...
