Love this place - it's quintessential Daylesford with gorgeous jazz music and very attentive service. I had the Cointreau and salted Carmel cocktail. It's to die for. The manager Jeremy is the perfect host - I can't wait to come back tomorrow for dinner.

A group of girl friends and I had a wonderful dinner at your restaurant. The waiters were so friendly and helpful in us choosing our meals. I originally thought the mandatory 3 courses was a bit much, however, after the meals came out I was pleasantly surprised. All dishes were wonderfully presented, and tasted delicious. They each had something special... More

On a recent weekend away we dined at Perfect drop and it was perfect ,friendly staff ,great atmosphere and beautiful food . It was pricy but after dining at Dinner by Heston at Crown we found the food just as good and a fair bit cheaper.We will definitely go again .

Hidden away off the Main Street of Daylesford; we were delighted that Trip Advisor led us to this quaint little restaurant. We would never have noticed it otherwise! From the moment we walked in Jeremy's welcoming, friendly and highly professional service greeted us. We were treated to a free taste of the chef's bread and smoked Thani and Black Salt... More

Very nice older style decor and ambience with an open fireplace at the front. friendly staff and restaurant is tailored to the upper market segment. (E.g. Smaller portions of food) We had 5 course meal, 3 were good and 2 missed the mark. Felt it was a bit pricey compared to other similar restaurants. Happy hour in the cosy bar... More

Just got back to our accomodation after having a 3 course meal at the Perfect Drop, there were 8 of us in our group and everyone said that their meals were scrumptious, well presented and they would highly recommend it to others. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

I came here on the Tuesday locals' night, which was a great chance to try some amazing good without breaking the bank. Each course was delicious, but the Beef carpaccio was a real stand out. The chef here clearly considers the textural balance of his food as well as the flavours. They try to use as much locally sourced products... More
