When visiting BENDIGO's internationally renowned Art Gallery, make sur you have time to relax in the Gallery cafe out the back overlooking BENDIGO's beautiful Rosiland park. You will also be in view of the Art Galleries beautiful marble statues in the glassed walkway as you make your way to sumptuous cakes, and cafe styled fare.

Our food & wine appreciation group had a magnificent meal from Chef Renzo last night - beautifully conceived, prepared and presented menu spoilt only by the persistently harsh acoustics of a hard-surfaced modern space. Some soft furnishings, drapes etc would do wonders in so many of our modern public eating places.

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...

12.9.2014. Had the Chicken Caesar Salad. Full sized cos lettuce leaves, layered in the bottom of the bowl. All the other ingredients seemed to be layered as well. 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
