So much food, beautiful presentation, excellent service. They were happy to cater for a vegetarian with a garlic allergy (without prior notice which was our oversight!)
We had the set menu of what felt like 20 courses but was actually 5.
We were offered the wine pairing which we didn’t use. The serves are not tiny and it was a lot of very good food. Don’t fill up on the homemade bread. And don’t eat lunch before you go! A lovely experience and a reasonable price given the quality and quantity. Would recommend.

We travel to Bendigo from Melbourne about once a year and always book dinner at Masons. It is an absolute treat. The menu is altered frequently according to the availability of local produce, the flavours are blended beautifully and the presentation is outstanding. The service and ambience make for a relaxed and special evening.

Excellent innovative food.
Good pricing for the set 4 course menu.
A visual feast and feast for the culinary senses.
The service was impeccable.
I am from Sydney and this is my go to place when I am in Melbourne.
I catch the train from Southern Cross station ( get an early train) then visit the shops and Bendigo art gallery to match an exhibition that I want to see then finish off for lunch at Masons of Bendigo.
Definitely a must try and a great day out if you visit Melbourne.
The best restaurant I have ever experienced. Good background music too.

They say you eat with your eyes - our lunch was a feast for the eyes and tastebuds. We had a 4 course lunch that was seasonal, incredibly creative, textural and downright delicious. The sourcing of local ingredients was obvious even down to the vermouth and gin used in the outstanding Negroni! Looking forward to going back. Thankyou everyone.

Just when one thought that Masons couldn't be any better Chef creates an even better dining experience. The balance of items on the menu was even better than last time and the service and expertise of staff continues to be outstanding.
