The Gallery Cafe is the best in Bendigo by far, how can I state this! my wife and I eat there on a very regular basis either b/ fast or lunch. The owner Lorenzo is the chef and does all the prep and cooking and produces the food to an extremely high standard. The cafe does get very busy when... More

The cafe did a great dinner for our group with excellent food and service. As a vegetarian I really appreciated the delightful vegetable stack with haloumi they provided for me which was so much better than the usual risotto or pasta.

Food was excellent and a lovely surprise at the end of the exhibit area. We sat on the terrace and had lunch overlooking the park on a terrific spring Sunday. We chose from 'Greek' selection and enjoyed our meal. The wine selection was O.K and the coffee drinkable. Parking is nearby and the view from the patio is pleasant overlooking... More

Food is always excellent. The view is very calm and relaxing. Service is always great. We visit the Gallery Cafe whenever in Bendigo usually after wandering through the Art Gallery. A great reliable cafe well priced and a good place for morning/afternoon tea or lunch

Lunch here recently - and disappointingly, it was a poor finish to an enjoyable wander around the gallery. After being brusquely told it would be at least a 15 minute wait, which we were happy enough to accept - they didn't seem terribly pleased with our decision! - just another bloody customer to make us work - we were told...

This was not a tossed Caesar salad, and the salad dressing was scant. eating was hard work. If I went again, I wouldn't have this dish. My Wife's dish was OK. We... More

We waited for 15 minutes for water, got the water but no glasses. The table next to us meanwhile finally got their food but no cutlery. Pretty much sums up the experience unfortunately

Prior to going to an exhibition, we ate at the Gallery Cafe. Staff were friendly, if a little unsure of themselves. Although the floor manager was very friendly and professional. We ordered an antipasto platter and grilled octopus salad. Both were nicely presented and tasty. There was also a nice selection of wine available. We ordered the vanilla slice for... More

I had heard good reviews about this place, but when I went and checked this place out I found that the place was a mess. None of the waitresses would listen to the manager, I came to enjoy a nice lunch and all I could hear was trash talk about each other (which ended in one in tears). Food was... More
