Lake House - Daylesford
For a sweet end to your meal at Lake House, enjoy the poached meringue with strawberry, rhubarb and caramel or the peanut butter, black sesame, caramel and banana dessert, both superb with a fresh organic coffee.
Gorgeous dining experience
Wait staff very attentive and friendly.
Quiet background music.
Food delicious with great attention to presentation and taste.
We had an incredible spring lunch at the Lake House Daylesford. The food was to die for and there was a great list of wines to choose from. We enjoyed coffee and sweet treats outside on the balcony overlooking Lake Daylesford.
The signature degustation was amazing.
We booked this in advance, I would have loved if they could have explained our dining experience for us from the beginning. As I ordered drinks before realising there was a pairing option. They almost forgot it was our anniversary but they bought out a special plate just as we had finished our dessert. We were given bread half way through our degustation, I think they forgot to serve at start.
Great night, but some slight annoyances... bread was given half way through our degustation? Assuming they forgot at start. Drinks and pairing and our pre-booked degustation weren’t described or explained, so we weren’t too sure how to start or what was recommended. They almost forgot it was our anniversary and then brought a treat out after we’d had our desserts. Carrot cream cheese wasn’t great, but ocean trout rocked! The mackerel didn’t really stand out to me and the bay bug dumplings seemed a bit out of place through the course of the meal.
Great plaace for special occasions and for those of culinary interests and appreciation of fine food.
Signature menu was exceptional and very well presented. The service was friendly, attentive and accomodating. Special culinary experience and we would return.
We had a lovely long lunch...wonderful ambiance and sensational food.
We will be back...
We had a great dinner, chose the 4 course option and each dish was delicious. Cant wait to go back!
Excellent service. Very fine food. Great wine
We had been looking forward to dining at Lake House and our expectations were well and truly met. The experience was like going to an art gallery, only you can eat all the beautiful works. The restaurant is charming, view fabulous, staff were lovely and highly professional. Altogether a truly memorable meal.
Exellent food with beatuful decoration. The signature menu is highly recommended. Good lake view.
Our dinner was an experience we will always treasure - thank you.
It's our second visit and it didn't disappoint us.
The restaurant is beautiful and so is the food. We loved all the dishes and they looked like art pieces.
Absolutely love it here will be back
Came to Daylesford specifically to dine at the Lake House. The food was good (not amazing) and beautifully presented. They were accommodating of our toddler which is lovely to allow us to still enjoy eating out at quality places.
Unfortunately we were largely ignored after our mains were delivered, sat with finished plates in front of us for a long time, not offered dessert for a long time.. Service and value for money not quite there for the price point.
Spectacular food. Well worth the price. Service was a bit “cold” at times though.
The attention to detail for food and service was outstanding.
Just exceptional, fantastic food and service. Just loved all. Price gave me a scare at the end, but well and truly worth it.
Wow, a wonderful dining experience. I took my wife for a surprize birthday dinner. Everything was as people and reviews stated, "EXCELLENT". A wonderful experience.
This has always been an excellent restaurant and it continues to excel. Really, really, good produce prepared with respect and a real understanding of how to give the diner an understanding of just how delicious good produce can be. The standard of the food is more than matched by everyone that looks after you in this place. The staff are exceptional. The design of the restaurant means even on the most miserable, grey, cold, rainy day it all looks beautiful. It is an experience to treasure.
Fantastic delicious food and great service! Nicollo our waiter was very helpful. Food was divine, I can’t wait for our next trip to visit this place!
Dining at the Lakehouse Restaurant is a sublime experience and one that we always enjoy so much. For us, it is definitely a special occasion restaurant, but we love it so much that it's amazing how often we can find a reason to celebrate. The food is exquisite and the staff are attentive and knowledgeable and we always feel that we are the centre of attention when we dine there. The restaurant is calm, understated and beautifully lit at night and it's location at Lake Daylesford is beautiful.
Exceptional food in beautiful setting
We have been here a couple of times and the experience has been consistently good. Staff pays a lot of attention to detail and overall it makes you feel indulged..
The food is beautiful and well thought off .
Outstanding! It never disappoints.
We decided to eat the Signature menu and were so pleased we did. It is lovely anticipating the surprise of the presentation and taste of the elements making up each dish. There was a good variety of foods presented including fish,vegetables and meats. The waiters were very attentive and patiently explained each dish. I found very helpful that some things were changed for me so that I could eat them. I can't cope with onion and they were able to adjust dishes for that.
We had the 8 course "Signature Menu" and we were not disappointed. Standout dishes were the dumplings and the artichokes.
Lake House is a wonderful experience. Our visit was a celebration of a very special occasion - and this beautiful place made it so, in every possible way.
Everything about it is a feast.
It is very expensive; what you get is very special indeed. I am very glad to have done it once in my life!
Wait staff amazing!!!!
Food was very nice but lacked something?? It didn't have that "punch" that I was hoping for. It tasted alittle bland.
degustation all interesting food
Had a really good meal experience. Good food and service.
We have visited the Lake House every year for many years. Our family have decided to eat vegetarian meals to help the environment. We all walked away from the Art of the Vegetable menu saying that was the best meal we have ever eaten. Totally over indulged but totally in bliss.
We enjoyed the perfect lunch. The meals were exceptional and well sized. Everything else was absolutely spot on. Thank you Lake House.
Very accommodating with food restrictions. Thank you!
Amazing lunch. Great dinning room. Super tasty food. Perfect for our 10th wedding anniversary celebration. A lovely 3hrs of being spoilt. Would highly recommend.
Delightful in all ways. A perfect place for a lunch to celebrate a special occasion. Superb food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere.
It's hard, to sum up, this place without sounding like a cliche, the food is magnificent as is the location, service, ambience etc... In Victoria the competition for your dining dollar is fierce, The Lake House has consistently over the last decade consistently delivered and is easy to take for granted. The restaurant has never rested its laurels, has kept up with changing trends in food and wine as evidenced by the Sake served with the Hiramasa Kingfish and White Kimchi... exceptional.
First off, the good- the food was fantastic and majority of the meals from the signature menu were faultless
Now for the rest - the bad.
Undoubtedly the worst service I have experienced for a restaurant of this caliber. The greeting as we entered was terrible and unmemorable as we were made to feel like a number rather than a guest.
The service throughout the night was just as bad from the moment we sat down. Not once did the staff explain the menu or the history of the Lakehouse.. TBC!!
The food was the star of the dinning experience,it was everything we had hope for. The staff were very friendly & helpful.
