The setting of the restaurant is intimate. The lighting is subdued, yet warm and cosy feeling, with an eclectic collection of tables and seating .Each course is so elegant and full of flavour. Of 5 dishes, the main is vey generous. It could be a stand alone course in a regular dining meal. All courses move elegantly onto the next.... More

We loved the food and service here. The interior is fun and quirky, and with the fire place burning, warm and cozy. The service was fabulous, friendly and quite easily talked us into those extra glasses of wine. It is reasonably pricey, but we would go back.

The food was delicious, the service top notch and the atmosphere warm and relaxing. There is a lovely feel about this restaurant but the food is really something else. Each course takes you on a journey of local produce in new and unique ways. Would definitely recommend and return to try the other menu items.

We walked in and were greeted quickly, and had a nice cozy spot in the corner by the fire. It had a great atmosphere and our orders were taken shortly after. We went for the 5 courses, but asked for no dairy or fish as my partner can't have these. 2 of the courses that came out had dairy, but... More

Really lovely food and beautifully presented but also pricey as you have to have two or more courses. Great ambience. Staff were great.

We have been there a few times. I love the vibe of the place, the antique style, the fireplaces and the big patio area in summer, esp. if there is live music. Our food, coffees, beers and wines have always been fantastic.

Loved it! Ambient and cozy, the eclectic decor belies the exceptional meals that come from the kitchen a bit. Plus a couple of power shorts during the night actually added to fun and cool nature of the restaurant, along with the cool tunes from the wine bar.

we went here for a quiet dinner, and the food was excellent, great taste, great presentation, service was great. The second night we went back just to have their deserts again and cocktails at the bar. Highly recommended. Service was great as well. All local produce

Picked the long weekend in June, plenty of people in town, opted for the late sitting, so as not to have early in the evening.

Our first visit to Daylesford for over 10 years and things have really changed in the Restaurant industry. This fabulous little place offers two sittings for Dinner, we chose the first sitting as there was also 'happy hour' for cocktails and we had to be elsewhere later in the evening. The menu was extensive and of good choice, we selected... More
