We dined here on Saturday night, it’s a great building and has such history. We sat upstairs, our waiter was efficient, super friendly and had a terrific sense of humour. Our food was great, unfortunately they had run out of steak, but never mind. Wine...choices were plentiful and there is something to suit every budget and taste. Bookings are essential, we would definitely return.More
Meals forgotten and therefore arrived late. When our meals did arrive we still didn’t have any cutlery and no apology was offered. The meals themselves were average we thought. The wine was nice but overall the price did not match the food or service. A...change of ownership perhaps? As previously we have loved it there. Staff eating standing up meals, unpacking boxes of stock in the dining area during lunch service. Not the special place it used to be.More
Speaking to many people in Bendigo, this establishment lets itself down with its slow and casual service.
While staff were quite friendly, we were constantly chasing them to order drinks and the waiting 15-20 in some instances.
The all you can eat wood fired pizza...which is located in the back courtyard on the other hand was plentiful and very nice.
Having to move from the courtyard to the front of the premises after 9:30pm is also bit unnecessary.
In summary, a nice heritage venue but needs to get a bit more urgency with the service.More
Friday night is pizza night. Book a table, order a bottle of wine (ask for a recommendation - ours was fabulous), and wait for your pizza to come. It’s fresh out of the wood-fired oven, and deliver to you a slice at a time so...you get to try all the delicious flavours. The pizzas are so amazingly good. The staff are relaxed, friendly and helpful. A very pleasant night out indeed.More
Beautiful building but not really a restaurant. Food was more tapas style, unless you want the $25 all you can eat pizza on certain days in the back open area. Loads of wine to choose from but add an extra $15 if you want to...drink it with your meal. Toilets are outside, females right down the back, not suitable for anyone with any mobility issues as there are stairs involved too.More
Even taking into account that they were busy on our arrival and we accepted with ease a wait of 40 minutes or more for food, assuming sitting in the sun having a drink was a great way to wait for lunch, service was pitiful, particularly...with Covid restrictions compliance. One was rude and the other couldn’t move out of his own way if he was on fire. In the 2 hour stay we saw only one table properly cleaned in between customers. Couldn’t get a drink for 25 minutes and getting a second one an hour later took three requests and still had to don mask and go inside to ask again. Food was good but the whole experience puts the once outstanding reputation and consistency in jeopardy - same thing a month ago. Not questioned about signing in either time! So no wonder contact tracers struggle!!!! Disappointing and unlikely to return Covid or no Covid.More
I have ordered sardines in their cute tin before but not left swimming in oil which has not at least been slightly drained. The salad was soggy with oil which had obviously been added much earlier in the day. I have eaten Thai fish cakes...many times and as a former restaurant owner, understand the difference in potato based fish cakes and the light tasty Thai fish cake. There is no excuse to make simply prepared food so poorly. Pity that a restaurant cannot accept some criticism without sinking themselves further in putting the customer down whilst defending their inadequacies.More
