A fabulous night with friendly and knowledgable service, a wonderful menu and the opportunity to relax over excellent food next to an open fire. We would highly recommend this to everyone and would certainly make the drive back to visit again.

We visited Mercato for a celebration with a party of 18, including children from 5 to 16, and were delighted with the whole experience. Preparation beforehand was excellent and reassuring, as we had a number of gluten-free requirements in the party, and were pleased at the willingness to ensure that suitable items would be available for children's meals. Almost all items on the menu are gluten-free, which allowed choice for everyone. Attention to detail marked the whole meal, with attentive and friendly service, superb food, and helpful advice when requested. The younger members of the party were looked after carefully and appropriately, and we all felt relaxed and grateful for the opportunity to share in the ambience of this excellent restaurant.

Everything at Mercato is outstanding - the food, the service and the ambience. Having already eaten at many of the well known restaurants in Daylesford, we were surprised we had not heard of Mercato when in fact it was the best by far of all the restaurants in the area. Every dish of a three course meal that my partner and I had was delicious. The staff had a 'can do' attitude and were very friendly and professional. The drinks list was extensive including non-alcoholic options. The restaurant was well appointed, cosy, warm and inviting.

Mercato will be our restaurant of first choice when we visit Daylesford. If you are looking for a quality evening, our recommendation is to go to Mercato.

Fantastic vibe, My wife and I both enjoyed the cheesy cauliflower soufflé as an entree. Was still bubbling as it was brought out! We then had the beef and lamb and flavouring on both dishes was superb. We swapped forks a few times! Finished off with dessert and you could of had the whole menu! Very glad we chose Mercato!
