Delicious and variety of food top class. Great service, we weren't not hurried for our Sunday lunch. Great air-conditioning on a hot in Bendigo. Good variety of drinks.

Outstanding cocktail selection - didn’t venture beyond the Burnt Orange & Vanilla Bean Sour - wow! A cocktail to kick start a night. We were ‘walk-ups’, seated at the window, immediate service from clearly experienced, enthusiastic staff. Felt very welcomed - even though we were late arrivals and couldn’t stay for a meal. Coffee was great & wandering up Chancery Lane - a hidden treasure

The location of this restaurant is a great start to the experience - almost feels like it is hidden down a back lane and close to the Shamrock Hotel. Once inside you see the quality wines ready to go. Attentive service and more than enough food - you won't go hungry like some similar quality places. Scallops were great, mussels and pipis delectable! Stuffed zucchini superb and different. But what about the soft shelled crab?? Nice beers and cocktails as well. Be sure to order the potato cakes which will ensure you leave fully satisfied.

Had lunch here a couple of days ago.
The cuisine is Contemporary Asian.
We ate Tapas style and shared several dishes. All were very tasty.
The service was excellent.
We do recommend booking early as inside spaces are quite limited.
Would definitely recommend.

I booked the Dispensary for my 65th birthday dinner. I’d been for lunch 18 mths earlier when I visited the Elvis exhibition. Back then it had been a real delight on every level. It may have changed management but last night’s experience couldn’t have been more different. Our waitress was very professional and helpful and the wine we had by the glass very good, but the food was truly dreadful. We chose the Seven courses-chef’s choice. The lamb cutlet was fatty and tough, and the main meal of beef with noodles was, for me, inedible. Salty, thick pieces of
?corned beef(not sure). To call prawn crackers and edamame a course was pushing it. I was so disappointed.
