Do yourself a favour & dine at the magnificent Mercato Resturant when in Daylesford. My husband & I we so pleased we chose this surperb resturant for our anniversary dinner. The food was of such high quality in every way. We loved the ambience of Mercato as well as the friendly & professional staff. The service was excellent & compliments to the fabulous talented chefs. We very highly recommend this outstanding resturant. We will most certainly return.

Thank Tez C

I was actually a little disappointed because I had high expectations. We ordered five dishes, and three were good while two were below average. I was surprised at disliking the emu carpaccio because it looked great, but I described it to my partner as tasting like 'grey'. For those prices, I expected more.

Service staff were great though, and the semifreddo was excellent.

Just behind the heart of Daylesford (Vincent Street) in a leafy street, this understated restaurant is a regional best hands down. This fine establishment excels in every aspects of a dining experience. Accommodating hospitality. Unobtrusive but attentive service. A well rounded wine list. Superb food that does not leave you hungry. Elegant and simple decor. Unpretentious. Fresh. Well worth driving up from Melbourne.

Four friends had a few days in Daylesford and was looking forward to our dinner at Mercato. We went on a Monday to have the 'locals' dinner. Our expectations were high and sadly to say we were extremely disappointed. Our table was by the door, we ordered from the locals menu and within 3 minutes of ordering the food was on the table. Talk about 'fast food'. The chicken breast was dry, the thai fish cakes needed a sauce and the beef ragu was just OK. Obviously the food was ready and waiting. Nothing outstanding or fine dining in any way.Then the wine barely filled a quarter of the glass. We didn't stay for dessert or coffee as we just wanted to leave and go back to the beautiful cottage we had rented. There we had our coffee and sweets.
