A few words from Sault

Stirring memories of regional France, Sault is set against the backdrop of Wombat State Forest, overlooking our own lake amidst fields of lavender. Indulge yourself with exquisite modern cuisine prepared with the freshest of regional produce and washed down with the finest of local and international wines.

70 minutes from Melbourne, Sault provides the perfect launch for your gastronomic and indulgence weekend in the beautiful Spa Country.

Named after a lavender producing town north of Marseille, Sault is a fully functional Lavender farm producing sumptuous products to take home as a memento of your relaxing stop off.
The menus change seasonally and the head chef regularly meets with local growers and producers to ensure the freshest of seasonal produce is used. Sault caters for dietary requirements and children's meals.

Complement your meal with a walk around the lake or a casual game of Petanque on one of our 3 courses. Or merely sit back on our deck and let your thoughts wander amongst the Lavender allowing your recently consumed culinary delights to settle.

November through to February come and see the spectacular lavender fields in bloom. The most picturesque property in Daylesford comes to life as row upon row of lavender opens. The best time of year for weddings, private functions and romantic evenings.

Sault is a wonderful place to stop off, either on the way into town before checking in to accommodation or on the way home as a final hurrah to a peaceful time in Daylesford.

"I have eaten in and around Daylesford a fair bit and Sault is the area's best restaurant by a long way"

"One of Victoria's best restaurants – right at the top"

The Herald Sun, Stephen Downes August 31st

Groups & Functions

At Sault our couples are happily enjoying the use of the new chapel overlooking the lake.

Nowhere else ever seems to meet the high standard and delicious food and beautiful ambience of Sault. It is by a long way our favourite restaurant.


Great experience at Sault, the tasting menu is to die for, good food, portions, flavour combinations, ingredients and plating. Much better value and quality than other hatted restaurants in the area or Melbourne. Service and location was top notch. A really happy and impressed customer.



We drove out to Sault for their Wednesday locals night, a very cold night. We were greeted by a lovely open fire. After being greeted and shown to our tables we ordered our drinks and our meals arrived in a good space of time. We all agreed that the meal was delightful.Good value.The service was excellent. Thankyou Sault.


OMG! An absolutely sensational menu, lovely location and attentive service. I had one of my "top five" ever meals here. Do yourself a favour and make a dinner reservation here.


Had an excellent meal here after an average one at The Lake House the night before. Would be a fantastic setting for lunch in spring.



Had a terrific lunch here recently. Would recomend this place when visiting the area. Interesting wine list with plenty of wines from the region. Service was spot-on.
