I went for the locals night - 5 amazing courses. The food was so good I felt the need to meet the chef and shake his hand ( and I have never done that before!) Hugh is a Master! The 2 waiters were also a delight. The whole experience was magnificent 💐

We were visiting Daylesford for 2 nights, from Adelaide, and decided to dine at Perfect Drop for dinner. We opted for the 7 course degustation menu, and were not disappointed. All of the dishes were fantastic and made using fresh locally sourced ingredients. Each course was beautifully plated and very tasty, with all ingredients well balanced. Service was friendly, particularly... More

Love everything about this place - food, wine & entertainment. A pure little gem. Great for a romantic evening with your partner, or gather with a group of friends for a casual drink in the afternoon. We just keep going back.

We stayed in Daylesford for the Bruce Springsteen concert at Hanging Rock and on the Sunday evening after the concert eight of us ate at Perfect Drop. What a surprise! This restaurant would stand out in any city in the world. The food was superb - worth going for the 5 or 8 course set menu to experience a variety... More

Myself and two girlfriends went for a beautiful meal here, it may well have been the nicest meal I have ever eaten. I would happily give it a 5 for the meal, but a 4 as the waiting staff other than the main man, were a bit slack. The main waiter was superb and delivered our food with a flourish... More

We recently celebrated a family birthday with Saturday lunch at the Perfect Drop. The food, while reasonable priced, was excellent. It is beautifully presented and sourced locally. The wine is very well priced and there is a good selection. The service was outstanding, understated, attentive and knowledgeable. The restaurant has a lovely ambience. We will be back.
