We went as a family of six adults one teenager and a nine year old. Whilst there was not an official menu for children the waiter provided three selections which were all perfectly suited to less refined pallets. The teenager went with the main menu and was fine with that but if you have a picky eater that only likes... More

We enjoyed a fantastic dinner last night at Perfect Drop. The meals were as good as we've had anywhere and the service perfect. Very professional and friendly. We will be back!

A very memorable meal with superb service, quality ingredients in a beautiful atmospheric setting. I was hesitant to go to this restaurant given other reviews but was value for money given the complexity and portions of the dishes. The wait staff were efficient and informative. I wish it was my local!

We only had a cocktail but the delightful French waiter made us a very strong but delicious espresso martini - delicious!

The Perfect Drop really was perfect. From the friendly greeting by staff in the restaurant and bar on arrival, to the warm and comfortable decor, to the truly delicious food, my partner and I had a wonderful evening. We had the 5 course chef's choice degustation. The food was sensational, the portions were generous, the price excellent value for money.... More

The perfect place for dinner in Daylesford. Excellent variety and generous serves. The atmosphere and service was first class for our big group but equally great for small groups or couples.

Popped in for a 5 course "feed me" meal and were blown away by the quality of the service and food. The ambience in the restaurant was also first class. Can certainly recommend!

Arrived in Daylesford late in the day and went looking for a nice restaurant for dinner without a booking. A local recommended this one and we were lucky enough to get in. Nice setting, really pleasant and friendly service but most of all really nice and well presented food. Best steak I had in ages.

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
