Overview

Restaurants & cafes

Dine out in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges and taste food so fresh it comes straight from the paddock to your plate at acclaimed restaurants, congenial gastropubs, rustic trattorias, vineyard eateries, and cosy cafes.

From paddock to plate

In Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges you may dine simply or lavishly, cheaply or expensively, but you'll dine on food straight from the farms and on wine from vineyards you can see.

You'll always know the provenance of your food when you dine out in regional eateries. Award-winning chefs in some of Victoria's best restaurants are so committed to making best use of the season's bounty and using fresh local ingredients that many highlight them on their menus.

Fine dining, gastropubs, and chic cafes

Frock up for exquisitely prepared local produce at Daylesford's Lake House or find a comfy corner to enjoy the Farmers Arms and Daylesford Hotel's gastropub's restaurant-quality tucker. Indulge in a Japanese banquet at hatted Kazuki's at the Raglan, or be tempted by tapas at Perfect Drop. Savour preserves and produce on the shelves of Cliffy's and city-quality espresso at Buffalo Girls Coffee Bar.

Walk along Kyneton's Piper Street and be lured by menus featuring regional produce. Dig into the contemporary cuisines of Kyneton's Royal George Hotel, Annie Smithers' Bistrot, Mr Carsisi, Monsieur Pierre, and Little Swallow Café.

Sate your appetite as you travel around the region, making a beeline for Olive Jones in Macedon, Du Fermier, Colliban Foodstore and The Cosmopolitan in Trentham, and Maloa House Gourmet Delights and Village Larder in Woodend.
