What a waste of time, money and effort. The food was bland and bordered on tasteless. We had heard some reasonable reports about this restaraunt but found it lacking. Maybe just an off night!!!! Nandos across the road would have been better and way cheaper.

Last night was the second time my partner and I have eaten and Bouchon, and once again, it didn't disappoint. The ONLY downside was that the last time we were there there was a beautiful fresh duck salad on the menu which I was thinking about all day only to find it was no longer on there! Never mind! Charcuterie... More

Must return to try other items on menu - small celeriac salad just wasn't enough. had to order more with delicious pork dish. Our waitress Laura suggested a great wine too! So very happy with this dining experience in Bendigo 👍

Excellent service, ambiance and food. A small menu but enough to satisfy our one fussy diner. Would recommend visiting.

What a gem this bistro is. I dropped in with my book for dinner and as a solo diner it is the best way to see how a restaurant works from a service and food point of view. To my great delight I was seated in a good seat away from a large table but still in the centre of... More

Bouchon still continues to be one of the favourite restaurants in Bendigo. It maintains a consistently high standard for friendly, attentive, efficient service and very good meals in a French style of cooking. As with French cooking meat tends to be cooked a little rare which doesn't suit some people. Local wines are available.

Visited Friday night. The decor is a little under whelming but your certainly not there for that. Not too busy. Truly sensational food and service. We started with the charcuterie which was just enough. All home made and amazing flavours. Lots of people comment on the limited menu. It is very limited but so as you are a carnivore you'll...

My husband and I were walk-ins on a Wednesday night. The service was excellent. We were seated, given menus and water was poured for us. We were given delicious complimentary bread. For entrees we chose the garlic escargots and beef carpaccio; both well presented and tasty (I was glad for the bread to enjoy the gorgeous garlic butter from the... More

Excellent little French restaurant, has great character, small and intimate. First things first the service was excellent, the waitress was very knowledgeable, attentive without being intrusive. The food was exceptional made with fresh local produce. The menu was limited but to be expected when it is seasonal and it seemed as though it was probably a husband and wife team.... More
