On a sunny Spring day, protected from the chilly breeze by the semi-outdoor glass-house like structure, we had a simple but fresh and tasty lunch. Everything was pleasant: the food, the surrounds in the middle of Daylesford's Botanical Gardens, the service, the slightly quaint piped music.

We were staying at Wombat Hill Cottage so were able to walk through our back gate to this little gem. We had a great breakfast meal, with beautiful fresh ingredients, something we had come to expect from all the eateries we tried in Daylesford. Service was quick and friendly.

Great walk through the gardens to reach the cute cottage styled restaurant. The wait staff were incredibly friendly as soon as you walk in the door. With a menu that changes day to day with local produce, there is always something different to try. The food was amazing and we enjoyed every bite!

After hearing so much about the house I was pleasantly surprised to receive great food, matching wine, matching service and a cosy vibe to suit. Another great eatery for family and friends to try!

Went with a friend for coffee and cake on a glorious Saturday afternoon. Sign on the door announced full house and to come back at 2.00pm. It was 2.30pm, and a chap also going in told us there were plenty of tables out back. On entering, the supervisor told us to go away, as people were still finishing lunch. My... More

We absolutely adored this cafe. It's set in the botanical gardens, which are spectacular. We loved the range of food and beverage options available and wished we could eat more. The decor of the cafe was really cute and cosy. We liked perusing the range of local items on display. The service was fantastic and the place had a great... More

A gorgeous spot for lunch, great staff and very warm ambience. My partner and I enjoyed salads, flathead tails and fries with a lovely matched Gewurtztraminer from Granite Hills. The flathead was perfect as we're the crispy fries and loved the look of the pizzas which I will definitely have a of at next time. Good stuff!

The botanical gardens are small but idyllic. Wombat Hill House is a little cafe in the middle. It's a steep hill from the centre of Daylesford, but not difficult to walk up if you have a moderate amount of fitness. The cafe was good, but probably not the best we ate at while in Daylesford. I ate the homemade crumpets... More

Wombat Hill House is 'hidden' amongst the trees at the top of the hill in the beautiful Botanical Gardens. The house itself is beautifully designed in soothing blue-and-white tones, with warm wood, stone and a cosy fireplace. There's a gorgeous vine-covered terrace area, or courtyard you can eat in – if the Daylesford weather permits – complete with vegie gardens.... More
