Good food, good wine, good atmosphere, good service and well priced!

I ate there 2 nights while staying in the motel when I was in Bendigo for work. Nothing outstanding but a good quiet place to eat; the service was prompt and good value for money. A nice view over the lake opposite and, even though it faces the main highway in & out of Bendigo it was quiet. Worth... read more

Caught up with friends for dinner at this restaurant. The food was more than disappointing and we had to wait over an hour for our food as there was a bigger group in the restaurant. The food was tasteless and in no way matched the menu. Presentation of the food was extremely poor. Service was curt and abrupt -delivered with... More

Good atmosphere in comfortable restaurant. Food was excellent with a good (but not basic bistro) selection on the menu. Caters for most tastes. Good wine selection as well. Specials were worth a try.

We stayed at the adjoining Lake View Motor Inn (was able to put the meal on that bill) so going to the restaurant was convenient. Both of us enjoyed our meals - mine pork and Helen's was salmon. The wines offered were of good quality at reasonable prices. Both of us agree that the best part of the evening was... More

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!
