Tapas at Quills

We enjoyed a tapas platter with plenty of variety. There was enough food for our group of 6 people................ so much so only 3 of our group ordered main meals. Presentation good and wait staff very friendly and accommodating

This restaurant is located within the Bendigo Lakeview Motor Inn so once you check into your room it is only a short walk to dine in. It is located opposite the lake and park with contemporary furnishings had a nice vibe to it. Dinner was excellent with a nice menu and breakfast was good.

Lovely food & good service. Great ambience as you have a view of the lovely Lake Weeroona. Reasonably priced & variety on menu. We went on a Monday evening, it still got quite busy later on. Yes we had one waitress but she had everything under control & was quite attentive to all there, which was made up of couples,... More

Waited and eternity for our first drinks and then for our order. It seemed there was only one person attending the whole restaurant until another appeared. We were never asked again if we needed more drinks. Food however was quite nice, ruined by the unprofessional wait staff, the second of which (who seemed more senior) sat herself at a table... More

for a motel restaurant this one has a chef who has an imagination and knows how to blend flavours & textures. Not your usual schnitzel, burgers & chips with everything!

Taste was really good. I had salmon as a main and flavours blended very well. As I was full after my main dish I did not have the chance to try... More

This restaurant is attached to the Lakeview Motel. We chose to eat here after looking at menus and prices at other pubs and restaurants and decided it was about the same price as they were. This was a good choice as we ordered Lamb Shanks and they were "better than excellent". In fact they were so good we went back... More
