I would like to "Thank" the amazing team at the "Northo" for catering and supplying incredible wholesome meals to our "Vintage Staff" at "Chandon Vineyards" over a 4 week period. Truely a pleasure to work with. Thanks

Two of us booked, arrived on time and were ignored, along with two other groups. Lady was working the cash register and attending the bar but did not acknowledge us at all. At that time only one table in the dining area was occupied. Sat down and ordered mains from Specials board. Then waited in excess of half an hour... More

We come to Benalla visiting friends a couple of times a year. We have always gone to the Northo for dinner once a visit and the last two times have been very average. We always get the bruschetta when we go out however the smell of the cheese was so overpowering we could smell it arriving. It tasted like vomit... More

As usual this restaurant lives up to it's reputation as Benalla's best. Both steaks and Barramundi were of the best quality. Our table service was excellent as well as friendly. Local wines are of great quality.

Popped in on a cold Friday night, fires roaring and a good vibe about the place. I was meeting up with my partner driving up from Bellarine peninsula and having had 4 hours to kill I decided to have a dinner. First time in town I took to trip advisor and found the Norto. You walk through the door and... More

The Positives. 1. When you walk in you are received in a most pleasant and inviting way, I have seldom experienced such a great feeling about a place. 2. The service personnel know what they are talking about and will always give you their honest opinion, especially in the regards to wines. 3. The food is honest, perfectly cooked; the... More

The internal modernisation of this external tired old looking hotel, in bar area and the two dining areas is very impressive. Ample off street parking at rear. I'm rating on both meals and their accommodation. If was only meals would nearly be 5 star. Accommodation pulls it down a little, but if you don't expect frills, and you can't get... More

Had a great meal here with my family. Good service friendly staff. Meals arrived promptly which is always a plus when you have the kids in tow. The menu was well completed by a good range of local wines which our wait was highly knowledgeable on. Also a good range of beers on tap. The highlight of the meal were... More

Service was ok, one knowledgable and enthusiastic waitress and the other not so. When we booked we were told we could not dine at our desired time but when we arrived later the restaurant was half empty so we could have dined earlier after all. Food was good. Full of flavour, fresh and arrived warm. One meal great one good... More

Thanks for your positive response to our food, wine and service. The reason we advised against your desired dining time was that there would be over 30 people being served at that time in the function room which is at the rear of the hotel. We aim to advise our guests honestly to avoid promising timely service we are unable... More

We were about to give up on there being anywhere to eat out in Benalla on a Monday night when we found the North Eastern Hotel and it was fantastic. Food was great, ambiance fantastic and the wait staff were all terrific - can't rate them highly enough.
