I visited Sault in 2019 and thoroughly enjoyed the whole fine dining experience. The food was exceptional, service amazing and presentation of the food was stunning. Fast forward to Feb 2022, we visited again with the same high expectation. However, a bit has changed since our last visit. The service was not what it was, (understand it is a tough time for the hospitality industry) however the staff seemed uninterested and did not make us feel welcome at all. The walkthrough of the menu was rushed and not much background on the food was given. We did the tasting menu (both now and in 2019) and prior we were given lovely explanation of what came from the gardens and what we should get out of the dish. The presentation of the food was still incredible and the produce is fantastic but lacked any punch or any flavor experiences. The restaurant had more of "Instagram" vibe with more interest paid to possibly those that came to take photos of the gardens and visit the restaurant, rather than the other guests. Overall for the price paid I didn't think it was worth it. Having visited the Lake House and other restaurants in Daylesford that weekend. I won't be rushing back anytime soon. See less

Great service and great food! We had our 10month old with us and the staff were great, gave her crayons which she held and entertained herself while we ate. Some came by and entertained her too which was lovely. Did the 7 course meal tonight and the 2 stand out dishes were the duck breast and beef eye-fillet. We requested a minor change to our dessert which they were happy to do. Thank you Sault team! See less

My wife and I celebrated her 30th birthday here and it did not disappoint! Amazingly well thought out course of food so freshly and thoughtfully prepared. We were advised that all produce is sourced locally on their farm where possible. Great local wine on offer also. The dessert number we had with the Vietnamese coffee drops was unbelievable. Might I say, possibly the best fine dining dessert I’ve ever had. Hats off to the chef! See less

Such an amazing venue, and the staff and owners are lovely. Well worth a visit to their restaurant, sunflower and lavender field and in lockdown, a produce stall! The four course tasting dinner is exquisite- lots of local produce used, and I’ve noticed the menu changes very frequently. We had one with gluten free dietary requirements, and the wait staff carefully explained which parts were substituted and how they changed the dish. Interior is wonderfully spacious and airy, with awesome views over a lake and fields. Particular shoutout to Jodi, who takes so much care and pride in her work and the food. See less

We had the 3 course meal each and absolutely loved it. Every dish was enjoyable. We started off with the beef tartare that’s topped off with fried crispy potato instead of the traditional egg yolk and the addition crunch makes it so much more delightful! How innovative. We had the scallops and pork belly for our firsts. The char on the scallops accompanied by the emulsion sauce and sliced radish was fantastic. Not to mention the combination of pork belly and beetroot sauce. My partner said that the lamb dish was probably one of the best lamb mains he have had in Australia and my favourite was definitely the eye fillet. The highlight is the final dish which is the chocolate with Vietnamese coffee curd and mandarin slices. The dense, intense flavour of the chocolate is such a perfect match with the citrusy of the mandarin. Would definitely come back again if we had the chance! Fantastic experience 🙌 See less

My wife and I dined here and very much enjoyed the 7 course menu. The food was excellent and the service mostly good. The venue is beautiful, albeit a bit noisy with the timber floor. The evening set us back approximately $400 for the night which was ok for a special evening. . The waiter prompting for a tip for the staff when handing us the bill was very much not 5 star. . Would I recommend the restaurant to others …yes. Would we dine here again …probably not. See less

Took my fiancé to Sault to ease the pain of having to postpone our wedding for the second time. I’m glad we chose this wonderful place to spend our evening. Not only was the food incredible, every single staff member we interacted with was so genuinely lovely, passionate, and accommodating. Thank you so much! See less

Visited this famous countryside restaurant of VIC last month. The vibe was warm and cozy. The estate is well-known with their garden but by the time we visited, it was dark already so did not really have the chance to enjoy the view. 2 of us decided to go for the 6 course degustation menu, $120/pp. The food was good, but not great.. and not worth it as well. What I meant here is the dishes were cooked from great to perfect, the steak was cook perfectly medium rare, duck breast was good, the cherry tomatoes for the entree were fresh. However it was not a WOW with the food. I have been tried a few of the degustation menu of some restaurants in Melbourne and what impressed me about this kind of dining is the dishes are often innovative which surprised the dinners. But this is not happened in Sault. And that is what I meant. What’s more, 6 courses but 1 is cherry tomatoes salad for the entree, and 2 courses are sorbet.. So $120 is not well worth. The vibe is not bad too but not get me the welcoming feeling. We were served by totally 5 different staffs for the night. One of them told us that the restaurant is always busy during the year and was fully booked for the weekends till next month.. Maybe I understand now.. See less

Such a beautiful place to experience on a visit to the Daylesford area. Dining at Sault is not cheap however it's worth it for the lovely food and scenery experience. The staff were really attentive and thoughtful. They also stock some local products for purchase which was great to see. See less

Took a midweek getaway to Daylesford and got a chance to try Sault thanks to my partner. Would recommend arriving a little early just to take in the surrounds, have a wander through their garden and veggie patch. The staff were all extremely courteous and friendly to chat to. The setting was lovely, with great views out of the restaurant over the lake, and lucky for us it was just in time for the sunset. The food was delicious and we enjoyed every little bit! Would love to come back again when we have the chance. See less

I visited Sault way back in 2016 with my parents and we were all blown away by the food then. I remembered very clearly that i had a dessert mochi dish which was mind blowing. The venue was nice and quiet and the service was very upmarket and professional. This time round, my husband and I visited sault once again for our honeymoon. Sad to say, we were rather disappointed with the food. Don't get me wrong.. the dishes were all cooked well. However, we were just not blown away like our first visit. The flavours were just one dimensional. The service was good but it was more of a casual style despite paying fine dining prices. The place was bustling on a Sunday evening and with all the hard wood around, my husband and i had to raise our voices when we chat. Don't get me wrong, Sault is definitely a place worth visiting but personally, I don't think I would go back again. See less

Invited by a mate to have lunch here, we had an amazing dining experience and then a lot of fun walking around the estate. We tried the 3 course set and it was amazing, a lot of the ingredients are sourced from the estate or locally so it's as fresh as it can get. One of my favourite dish was the beef tartare, definitely one of the best I've tried in Melbourne. You could tell how fresh the steak was by the delicious beefy flavour. Another dish that was outstanding was the eggplant which incorporated honey from the bee hives from the estate, so delicious. Once you have finished eating you can take a stroll around the estate where there is a beautiful lavender garden. I highly recommend trying this place ! See less
