Great, unique food, with a warm and cosy vibe. Best chips I have ever had! Many options on offer, delicious selection of local wines and produce. A must visit

Can't get any better than this. The atmosphere, service and food was exceptional. We had the tasting menu and every dish was so creatively delish! Extremely reasonable for the quality of the food.

Just a short walk from our Inn on a freezing night! We were blown away by the standard of food..... everything we chose was just amazing... the char grilled beef eye fillet just melted in my mouth and the flavour combinations just worked soooooo well!! Good friendly service, we would have loved to stay longer and enjoy the atmosphere but... More

Just what you would expect of a cosy country town. Famous for spas, Daylesford does a great job for foodies. This restaurant most importantly supports local wineries and being somewhat of a wine snob (OK a big one), the wines are very good. Our party opted for the set menu and the wait staff were gracious enough to make modifications... More

Had oysters for $1 each during happy hour. fresh succulent oysters. The food was fantastic and the service was good. A bit on the pricey side but you pay what you get.

Stayed at Daylesford over the long weekend and was looking forward to trying The Perfect Drop after reading reviews here. We ordered the Charcuterie plate to share as an entree and I had the Seafood Bouillabase while my partner had the Rib Eye. The Charcuterie plate at $27 could have been a lot more generous. My Bouillabase was delicious and... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately Daylesford in general is pricey as it is a foodie haven and has high standards. Our eye fillet is 220 grams, $41, superb, award winning and local greenvale, grass fed beef. The mushroom and goats cheese tart which goes with it is locally picked mushrooms by our kitchen team and the carrots are heirloom.... More
