    Our waiter kept telling weird/inappropriate jokes which was funny the first time but he didn’t know when to stop. For example, he sat down at our table with one of my friends meals and pretended to eat it. He also told me to skull my cocktail when I was ordering another one which I’m pretty sure is against the responsible serving of alcohol. His jokes were weird/rude and he couldn’t read the audience to see that we were clearly uncomfortable/annoyed with his behaviour. The food was average for the price you pay and the cocktail bar closed at 9pm on a Saturday night. The only good food we had was the bowl of chips.

    Waited ages for our drinks as we watched tables seated after us get their drinks and food. We ordered starters and mains but everything came all at once, and our main dishes were cold. Food wasn’t great, just ok and expensive for what it was. The head waiter tried to make amends by giving us free desserts but by then we just wanted to call it a night.

    Unfortunately the food was very poor and extremely overpriced. We would not recommend this if staying in Daylesford especially seeing as other restaurants close by have such wonderful food.

    Food is somewhat overpriced for the serving size. We were in the cafe rather than the restaurant and it needs a good clean. Limited dessert options as one was unavailable.

    Horrible food. We booked to eat at the hotel and they advised we were eating next door little did we know it was a different menu. Would never go back the pizza was something you could buy from the freezer at coles.

    Dinner was excellent. We shared a pizza and salt & pepper calamari which were both delicious and not too expensive. Waiters were very efficient and polite. Couldn't fault it. Both breakfasts were good, we had different egg dishes which were good apart from being a little cold. Waiter then reheated when asked which wasn't an issue. Both mornings were very busy but service was good considering the influx of people.

    We had a mostly enjoyable evening at Frangos, Daylesford! Our main waiter was delightful and he had a wonderful humorous nature without being intrusive. We found most of our meals to be well prepared however one of us ordered the Seafood linguini which were very dry and the mussels were small and shrivelled with the shells having been broken and were in the mussel meat - making them unpleasant to eat. Our meals were quite pricy averaging around $36 per main - two of which were just pasta (not an expensive ingredient). In addition a waiter should not question a patron's request of grated parmesan by telling them that it is not recommended on a given dish - they should simply provide what has been requested by the paying patron. On the whole we did have a pleasant evening - maybe don't order the linguini!!

    Whilst the service was ok the food was definitely not, we had dinner and breakfast and both times the food was cold. The steak was tough and chewy and the salmon sauce was overpowered with garlic to the point you couldn't taste anything but garlic. Would not go back.

    I celebrated my birthday last year in Hotel Frangos and remember enjoying the food and overall experience. I’m not sure what changed but the quality of the food this time round is very average. The pizza was disappointing, and the seafood linguini pasta was different. The pasta they used looked like egg noodles.

    Nice place with plenty of seating. Service was good however things are a little expensive. Additionally the food servings are on the small side. For example I ordered the pumpkin ravioli and whilst it was quite tasty, there were only five pieces of ravioli. A few more would have been nice considering the $30 odd dollars it cost. My partner's meal was a reasonable size though certainly not generous by any means. Anyway other than that I would recommend it.

    We were very pleased with the service. I wanted to swap my chips for the vegetables on the steak order and it wasn't a problem. My steak came cooked exactly the way I asked for which is medium rare. It was juicy and flavorful and the vegetable ratatouille was superb and abundant. Would recommend this place for a good meal.

    We booked online at Koukla, a restaurant we have enjoyed very much before and were most looking forward to. The booking was confirmed by a number of emails. On arrival we were told that Koukla was not open and we where walked through the kitchen to Frangos next door and shown to a cramped table. The waiter assured us that the menu was the same as at Koukla but on inspection this was found not to be true. Bitterly disappointed we decided to leave. What is the point of a complicated booking program if what it offers is not available?

    We had the pleasure of Coco Pops as our waiter multiple times over our weekend stay. He was great value, funny but also had excellent attention to detail. It was a particularly cold night and logistics of the back section of the restaurant made it near on impossible to be cozy. But despite this we would recommend this as dinner venue, our waiter was a hoot and the food very good!!

    Very nice restaurant. We had some starters which were nice. For mains we had the steak frites (very nice) and the pumpkin ravioli (also very nice). And for dessert we had the churros and the brulee. Perfect ending. Must make a mention of the perfectly chilled white wine. The service was really good and the restaurant had a lively ambiance. We had a really lovely dinner there. Everyone enjoyed the evening.

    Sunday night dinner, was quiet and nice. Not too full. Almost got scared off by the recent bad reviews, however had to pay a deposit for the booking so we went anyway. the pizza was great, the open lamb suva was great as well. Service was quick and friendly. Not sure what happened on all those bad reviews. Food was great maybe becuase it was a slow and quiet night. Would go again.
