Excellent experience in every way. The food was some of the best I've had anywhere; wine pairings were perfect and explained in a very down-to-earth manner; the wines by the glass list was extensive, as well. Service was perfect, and the atmosphere was cosy. Pre-set menu, but there's a vegetarian version available and they'll also cater to gluten intolerances. Really high-end dining without being stuffy. We don't live in Ballarat but will absolutely be back and would plan a weekend trip around eating here any time.

If you're looking for a top quality restaurant in Ballarat, look no further than Peasant. Each of the 5 courses we had for their June offering was beautifully served and absolutely delicious. Great matched wines too. Highly recommend - will definitely be coming back.

Best restaurant in Ballarat - the service is attentive and incredibly well-informed, with intelligent and ever-changing menu compositions always bringing a sense of surprise and intrigue. The whole dining experience is serene, with perfectly balanced food and wine options to satisfy every palette. Easily the finest culinary treat within 100km.

Our first time (but definitely not our last) at Peasant was just wonderful. We had been given a voucher for a birthday and were unsure of even where it was, and hidden behind two old doors, it was like entering a hidden world. Our waiter was professional, warm, and made us feel completely welcome from the moment we stepped foot inside. The atmosphere and lighting were delightful, and best of all, the food and wine could not be faulted. The best meal l have eaten in Ballarat and had me asking about the ingredients in every course. It was a generous meal in every sense, and worth every cent. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!

WOW! What an amazing culinary treat! This was 'date night' for the wife and me, and I think we found our go-to place. Quality food, delightful staff, ample portions, and a fantastic selection of wines. We truly had a lovely time and will be returning!

The best restuarant in Ballarat. Each course is just a delight for the senses, perfect texture and flavour matches that seem like pure magic from the chef. The gnocchi is to die for - little pillows of deliciousness, crispy on the outside and light as a feather inside. Wines are excellent and well-priced and a great selection of dessert wines and spirits. Service is delightful. I'm already looking forward to my next meal there.

Lovely fine dining restaurant in Ballarat. Been to this restaurant twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. For the service and menu received the price exactly right.The location in central ballarat (opposite the taxi rank!) is perfect. Will happily come back to this restaurant again!
