Poor choice of entree… olives would be nice! We would have stayed longer but it felt rushed having pizza arrive so quickly!

The service was very quick and the wait staff were lovely. Despite our high hopes, the meals were awful!! The chicken breast was reheated (could tell by the extremely hard exterior) and so dry it was hard to swallow. My partners pasta had a nice flavour, however the pasta wasn’t cooked properly. For the price we expected a lot better food.

Hotel Frangos was brilliant. Despite reduced numbers due to COVID nothing was too much trouble. It was our first visit to Daylesford and Hotel Frangos. We will be back and will recommend without question.

The food was really good, if the pasta had been homemade we would have given 5-stars. The service was excellent, The ambiance and noise level were quiet, this was due to COVID density restrictions. We've been trying to get in at various times throughout the year without success, so we did a takeaway order which was excellent so we're glad we finally got to go. We will go back again.

The food and service was absolutely fine. Unfortunately there was a large table of adults and a large table of very little/young to teenage children at a separate table, completely unsupervised by their parents at the next table. The parents were yelling across the table at each other. The children were yelling and screaming along and down the table at each other and the parents took no notice. We had to yell at each other to have a conversation. Other people came into the restaurant and immediately asked to be moved to another room because of the ridiculous loud noise. It was very unpleasant. We ate as quickly as we could and left immediately. Not good enough in a post-lockdown week. It was our first time in Daylesford and our first time away since 2019 due to Covid lockdowns. Surely it would be preferable to risk offending some patrons by asking them to keep it down and supervise their children? Sorry but we would not risk coming back if you are happy to lose customers due to allowing these selfish behaviours of bad-mannered patrons. You would think we were in McDonald’s playroom.

Hotel Frangos is a quaint European styled hotel in trendy Daylesford. We went during a.cold school holidays when the town was packed. The food was excellent (linguine seafood for me and Salmon for my wife were both fresh and well prepared) and we had exceptional service in a peak time particularly by our friendly and efficient Italian waiter Andrea.

We waited a very long time for service and left before dessert. Our food was ok but don’t know what all the hype is about. After talking to the manager about our waiting time he didn’t nothing but say sorry. We are quite unhappy with this restaurant and don’t recommend it.
