Delicious & cosy

Lovely meal, excellent staff. A bit pricey, but typical of nicer restaurants in the area. The fire made it nice & warm, but I imagine in summer it would be lovely to sit out in the huge courtyard.

used to be one of our favorite places but seems like the new menue is trying to be too clever.... The fish portion was too small and the entree was very cold. Service is still perfect though.

From the time we arrived, the staff at Jimmy's made us feel that we were in a very special place. Food and wine were wonderful, the vine in the outdoor area displayed its best autumn tones until overtaken by darkness and a flurry of twinkling lights. Thanks to all the outstanding staff at Jimmy's who made us feel so welcome... More

Food was lovely, which we were happy about because its not cheap. Expensive wine too but also very nice. Service and staff you could not fault. A lovely afternoon even with the extra15% surcharge for a public holiday.

It was an impromptu weekend away and an impromptu visit to Jimmy's Bar which gave my husband and I one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The staff were genuinely interested in providing us with a unique experience and we were indebted to their attention to detail and genuine interest in our needs. After expressing my love... More

We were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at Frangos & Frangos (Jimmy's Bar) last Saturday, 28 February. We have to commend the staff for being so fantastic. The food was perfect and not typical wedding food. Our guests keep raving about the canape's that we enjoyed in the Agora Courtyard. I particularly loved the slow cooked lamb shoulder... More

my husband has always admired the outside of this restaurant so this was his first pick for somewhere to dine in Daylesford. The decor is lovely and the wait staff are friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We chose a 2 course for $55 each option and selected 2 mains - steak and rabbit and 2 desserts - malt ice cream and... More

Jimmy's Bar and Restaurant has a wonderful inside/outside layout with plants and flowers. The food is always excellent as is the service. It is a good place for a coffee and a read of the paper or for a meal. The front area has long tables and a general type of menu whilst the rear area is a more formal... More
