We were thrilled with the entire experience at Jimmy's on the weekend. The food was exceptional as was the service. $65 per head for 3 courses -- can't go wrong!

We had dinner here on a Tuesday evening and ordered duck breast and calamari. We also ordered a side salad which was rather disappointing as it had no tomato or cucumber and was drowned in some sort of tasteless white dressing. Both mains were good but side a big disappointment,

It was Friday night and glad we booked as it was very busy. Our waitress Emma was wonderful, such a gorgeous bubbly personality and nothing was... More

Informal atmosphere, good food, friendly service. A very enjoyable experience. An excellent location right in the middle of Daylesford as well.

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

My fiancè and I had heard good things, so naturally we had to try it out. We ordered the Premium Chef's choice which includes 5 courses at $60pp, disappointing meal servings and quality of the food was def not to our liking. We were expecting a meal each but they we in fact shared. We should have spoken to the... More
