From the moment we walked in, we were impressed with the decor and ambient lighting. The service was great throughout the entire evening. The food was delicious. We chose the chefs tasting menu which gave us a sample of different dishes on the menu. A lovely evening and will be back for sure.

Just the right size meals that have a mix of competing and complimenting flavours. The Duck was magnificent. As was the deconstructed cheesecake with Goats cheese.

Fantastic service! We didn't get his name but the man with dark hair and glasses was what every person in customers service should be! What a treat to be so well looked after. Thank you

We had a nice dinner here on a Sat night. The setting inside is beautiful and the staff are polite and friendly. We had a few tasty sharing plates as starters and the doughnuts were a perfect finish. If you are in the area give it a go :)

We tried Jimmy's Bar & Restaurant over the Queen's birthday long weekend and were sorely disappointed. We ordered pork & lamb, both were dry and lacked flavour. It cost us close to $100. Would definitely not recommend this.

We had breakfast at Jimmy's bar each morning during our recent stay at Frangos and Frangos and would have to say the food was very disappointing . The corn fritters I ordered were quite inedible and the coffee very average. There are many better places to eat breakfast in Daylsford incliudding The Larder who make great coffee and Bococcini
