Exquisite Local Produce

Made my girlfriend's birthday very special with a fantastic dining experience of Daylesford's local produce. The Squid Ink Aioli and Espresso Martini were particular highlights.

We arrived for happy hour the place was freezing even though we sat by the fire. Cocktails were good but the oysters were fantastic. Staff not that friendly on the day we went.

Travelling in a taxi from our hotel in Hepburn springs to Daylesford we asked the driver to take us to where we could have the best expresso Martini, well she said it had to be the Perfect drop and we were not disapointed. Whilst there we had the pate with the toasted bread which was incredible, the waiter was really... More

Good menu, caters for vegetarians but rather pricey for the portions with mains starting at $30. Wine list is extensive; service was good, atmosphere was fantastic. But again, if I'm spending $30 on a main, I want it to be filling. Entrees were $18 and they were of a similar serving size. Recommend the hand cut chips! Great to see... More

Thank you for your review. You will find all of Daylesford is pricey as it's mostly a weekend trade. We do however try to keep our prices low and use a lot of organic and local produce, all of our meat is local, free range and grass fed, we have our own veggie gardens and use all ethical produce. The... More

The staff were very helpful, friendly and explained each meticulously presented meal upon serving and this really showed their passion for their food and the importance of great customer service. The food was delectable and faultless. All nine diners went quite as we all enjoyed such high quality meals - entree,... More

Recommended by well travelled Melbourne friends to visit Perfect Drop on our visit to Daylesford. We were overwhelmed with everything Perfect Drop had to offer. The food was better than most fine Melbourne restaurants and the owners even came to our table and said hello which was a nice touch. The Eye fillet was melt in my mouth grass fed... More

We had a fabulous night out at The Perfect Drop. The atmosphere was warm and the service was friendly. We had scallops and quail for an entree and duck breast for a main. We are still raving about the food as it was delicious. After dinner we sat in the bar and listened to the band Grumpy Neighbours. I highly... More

Visited with a group of friends and enjoyed the food but worst service when paying the bit. Male waiter rude and arrogant.
