Absolutely great place to visit and sit and enjoy a wine. Attentive staff who look after you needs without being pests. Excellent menu and choice of tapas dishes and an extensive number of wines. A must visit in Bendigo!
Visited after going to Elvis exhibition. Husband and I both ordered Elvis crunchy chicken special $18 each. We were warned in was only entree size so we also ordered chips to share, thank goodness we did !!
I have never seen such a small portion...of 3 small pieces of chicken and handful of coleslaw. The waitress I think was embarrassed too and I could also here the people on other table commenting. Please do not rip people off, it was a shame because the building was lovely inside.More
Wine Bank on View is located in a splendid heritage building, so sitting in their outdoor terrace allowed us to enjoy the architecture as we wined and dined. We didn't explore their extraordinary wine list, as we were just after a quick, early dinner. But...we found plenty of good choices by the glass. The menu offered a wide range of share plates and we liked all the items we had, especially lobster rolls, pork terrine and kingfish ceviche. Staff were very helpful with advice on wine and food options. Will definitely revisit!More
We happily stumbled on this find on our meanderings in Bendigo today. There is a terrific outdoor dining area , attentive staff , some wonderful local wines and fresh ,flavoursome tapas style meals.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Marinated tofu and caprese salad and anchovies on...toast. Genuine simple , fresh flavours shone through. The waitress we had today offered exceptional service.
The restaurant is in a lovely part of Bendigo with a tranquil streetscape.
Thank you !More
We booked a table at the very highly recommended Wine Bank on View opposite the Bendigo Art Gallery in View Street.
Another lovely, old, but upgraded, building, the Wine Bank was one of the top three recommended eateries in the regional city and we thought...we would treat a friend to a great meal.
The one waitress we saw running from table to table looked very over-wrought, but there were at least two working the rooms and two behind the bar, which should have been more than enough for the dozen or so tables.
Having waited about 10 minutes to order a drink, I masked-up, went to the bar and asked about a bottle of wine. The waitress with the blue hair pointed me at the bottles and said the prices were on them. I found a Tasmanian sparkling white for $36 and took one from the fridge. It was quite good.
She came and took our orders which were tapas-like meals. We ordered ‘lobster’ sliders, prawns in potato, a bowl of chips, a bowl of olives, a charcuterie plate and pate. And thought that should be sufficient.
Some time after 8.30pm, one and half hours after arriving, and just as I was getting up to ‘meet the manager’ the first of our courses arrived. The pate was good, as was the accompanying toast, the olives were tasty and plentiful, but the charcuterie plate had a couple of bits of prosciutto and two slices of some other salami with a few small pickled vegetables. It was a very tiny serve for a charcuterie plate.
The prawns in potato, numbered three very small ones to be precise, and the alleged lobster was chilled to the point that I was worried it was frozen, and hence a potential health hazard, served in a small sweet bun, with potato crisps from a supermarket packet. At a guess I’d say one of the $3 sea salt varieties.
For dessert, my partner had a chocolate torte with cream and berries and I had a Frangelico coffee Affogato.
The bill came to a not unreasonable (but not good) $168 and although we were satiated it was not what any of us would call a great meal. But the Pirie Tasmanian sparkling had jumped from $36 to $51 and I questioned the difference.
“Corkage” I was told.
“Corkage? I picked it up from the fridge, took two glasses from the bar and opened the bottle myself because the staff were so over-worked. How can you charge corkage?”
The very kind person behind the par reduced the bill by $15 for which I was thankful.
$15 for corkage? If you brought own wine, $5 would be more reasonable, but $15 for the restaurant’s own bulk-purchased wine?
Two star at best.More
Wandered by here on a Saturday night and were lucky enough to snaffle an outdoor table. The food was good (recommend the Terrine) and the wine excellent. Great service in busy times. You have to go inside to look at the place before you leave,...its beautiful.More
Absolutely fabulous! We called in for a casual drink, were seated at a great table outdoors. An excellent wine list and great cocktails. Partner chose a local Heathcote Shiraz, I had the amaretto Sour. Too good. Great tapes. Carpaccio to die for!
