When I tried to book online the website was... More

Lovely bar for a few drink with friends, and a bite to eat. Very relaxing environment with really friendly staff. Recently visited my parents and we all went to Jimmy's for a few drinks and light snack. Was really nice. Cocktails were amazing!

Excellent in every way! I was expecting higher prices. Love the door handles. It was a quiet Sunday when I was there, a few people but not too many to make it too noisy. Lovely rustic minimal Italian design,well that's my uninformed interpretation - creates a warm but not stuffy atmosphere and some places in Daylesford can be a bit... More

Loved this restaurant in Hotel FRANGOS. The service was attentive and the food delicious. The starter of calamari/risoni was a standout and my partner enjoyed his scallops. The main of lamb rump with a barley salad was also delightful. Compliments to you all. Good value and a great venue

This is a must if you are in Daylesford. My partner and I enjoyed sharing 3 grazing plates from the menu. The freshness, quality and taste was simply superb. We were in Daylesford for a couple of days and this meal was the hi light. Service was wonderful. The staff were very attentive. The ambience of the place was divine.... More
