The service was wonderful with a friendly rustic atmosphere. The food was delicious with a good serving on each and a good amount of variety on the menu. Our whole experience was fantastic, we will definitely be going back to enjoy the wonderful experience that the perfect drop was!!

Perfect Drop would have to be one of the finest places I have been too. The Lamb was delicious! There is great selection of wine and a fantastic atmosphere and great service. Definitely worth a visit when in Daylesford...

My husband and are were treated by the kids to winery tour, accommodation and lunch, our choice was the Perfect Drop. It was wonderful, we enjoyed share plates, and of course a perfect drop of wine. We were given a choice of where to sit, it was an unexpectedly hot day, so we opted for inside, which was a bit... More

We aware !, don't expect to linger for a minute , or finish your drink and watch the live music after your meal, we where told to leave the table ( which we had booked ) and go to the back bar so some else (who had not booked ) could eat there

Hello Colin and thank you for your review. You enjoyed your evening immensely however after 2 and a half hours on the table (we do have 2 sitting in one small section), you did not want any further drinks or food and after the next booking had arrived, you became threatening and aggressive. We unfortunately compensated this behaviour with a... More

A friend and I were recommended Perfect Drop by a local masseuse. We enjoyed 6 share plates and indulged in some lovely sparkling wine. Every dish tasted fantastic and the staff were great. To top off the evening we got to enjoy a Rolling Stones playlist for the evening (as it would have been the evening for the now-postponed Hanging... More

Our group of 8 gathered for a friend’s birthday and could not be more pleased with our choice of venue. Cosy and quirky atmosphere, tasty food and the top staff made it a night to remember. We started off with an Australian sparkling and progressed to an excellent Italian pino grigio, both quite reasonably priced. There are plenty of wines... More

Value for money here. Love the decor, food servings are very generous. If you're not up to a main, try three or more of entrees - some of the selections arn't on the main menu. Book ahead on weekends as it gets busy.

Visited on a Sunday night and stumbled across what seemed to be a happening locals hangout. The wait staff were attentive and the food (tapas) was nice. Unfortunately some of the dishes on the menu weren't available due to a busy weekend. The tables were close together and the music was a bit loud which meant others shared our conversation... More

Hello Pennie, Thank you for your review. On Sunday nights we have live music and a larger than normal local trade which is always enjoyed. Apologies that your table was too small, we definitely would have moved you to a booth or to one of the other two dining rooms if we had of known. The music from the bar... More

Went to Perfect Drop with high expectations. Waited ages for someone to take our order. Couldn't find a waiter/staff. They walked past avoiding eye contact. Owner rude. After 45 minutes we left and went to a restaurant down the road. What a difference. Staff were nice, meal came out fast, delicious.

Hello Sandyz, On this particular long weekend we were fully booked and deposits had been paid and we had no one leave. It is impossible for us to ignore a table, you will always have a drink within 5 to 10 minutes and we have a strict system of service with all extremely professional staff. As I have said in... More
