The Perfect Drop really lived up to its name. Not only did we find some fantastic wine but the food and service were sensational. We went with the '5 course chefs selection' option but they have 2, 3 and 7 course options as well or you can go old school and order your own from the menu. Hard to pick... More

As our first choice of restaurant for lunch in the Daylesford area was unavailable, we made a booking at the Perfect Drop based on its good reviews. We were not disappointed. The Venue is interesting the service excellent and the food some of the best I have ever eaten. We had the 5 course chef's special (essentially a desgustation) starting... More

One of the best dining experiences I have had, ever! A restaurant has to be top class, in all aspects, to get a 5-point rating from me. However, Perfect Drop has set a new (higher) bar. We had the 5 course chef's selection which elevated us into food heaven. I would highly recommend this. All food was locally produced and... More

We "dropped" in last night during our honeymoon/short winter break in Daylesford. A newly refurbished, but so full of character place greeted us with an open fire and even warmer personal service. My wife had the prawns in Cedar whilst I had the pork belly as an entree. Bothe were delicious, and wonderfully presented. For main I had THE best... More

We couldn't of asked any more from the staff, the food wine and service was faultless. We will be back again and try the other venue.

Perfect Drop is one of the best dining experiences we have ever experienced and we are both still thinking about it...The restaurant offers all the fine service and high level food and wine however in an ambient dining room that is not only mesmorising but a space where you don't have to whisper. It was truely a pleasure and we... More

Had a great meal here! ... We chose to get the chef selection (5dishes) and we were not disappointed. My partner is fructose intolerant and they were more than happy to adapt anything which was highly appreciated.

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.
