    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.

    Soooo expensive for such ordinary everything . Don’t eat here! Food was ordinary and soooo overpriced . Might as well as stayed at home and made myself a sandwich . So average. Also the bathrooms smelled sooo bad that some of us chose to wait until we got elsewhere instead . This app usually recommends really nice spots but this didn’t add up

    Very downmarket offering. I remember wonderful dining at Frangos and Frangos. Hadn’t realised those days are gone. My fault. Just wasn’t aware they had reduced their offering to the lowest denomination. Such a shame for such a wonderful building which in the right hands could punch so much above its weight.

    the atmosphere, decor and setup is awesome. the menu was a bit confused - mainly italian then a couple of random items. only one pasta dish. not enough food options. we ordered french fries and got chips. and two pizzas - very average. for the price and setup of the place we expected woodfire pizzas. they weren’t - very average bases and the toppings didnt save them. there were like 3 olives and 1 artichoke on the capriciosa. underwhelming. staff were lovely. toilets were disgusting. this place has heaps of potential but was disappointing for us.

    The waiter kept telling jokes which was fun the first couple of times but didn’t know when to stop. If he spent more time serving us and doing his actual job then the jokes wouldn’t have been so tedious. There weren’t very many guests at all and yet we had to wait over 10 mins for our bottle of wine. The menu was extremely minimal which made us think they would perfect the meals but sadly not… Food was mediocre and our chocolate fondant was dumped in front of us. We then had to ask a waiter for a spoon. The texture was like rubber and it was obvious it had been microwaved. Once cut open, nothing oozed out and by this stage we were totally over it all. We returned the dessert as we simply weren’t willing to pay the $16 they were asking for it…. We were highly disappointed as this was a very rare girls night out.

    Menu did not offer a range of items - quite limited. Also it was in the high priced and it didn't even offer table service. The place was very noisy and because all doors were open, we were inundated by flies. Although it's an iconic Daylesford restaurant, I'd skip it.
