An hour after ordering, we still had not received our meals. Waitress came over to advise that one main was not available so to pick another - overheard other diners being told that parts of their meals were not available. I would think that arborio rice and potato mash should be fairly staple products for a restaurant to have on... More

Sad to see a once premier restaurant decline so much. Food worse than average, each course came out on top of each other; entree still being eaten as main arrived. Don't waste your time and money.

Restaurant attached to a motel. Did not stay at this motel but at one close by where the restaurant was not open, which was fortunate for us because Quills is excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. The food came out after only a short wait and was perfectly cooked. If we are ever back in Bendigo would certainly return to... More

I stayed at the hotel and hosted a conference here at the function room in the restaurant. The function staff were so friendly and helpful and the function food was very decent (hot fresh muffins mmmm) Had dinner at Quills and my colleague and I were so pleasantly surprised! Perfectly cooked salmon and lamb shanks that melted off the bone...... More

We were taken for dinner at the Quills Restaurant which is part of a motel complex. Yes I know most of would expect the service and the food to be rather bland. Not this one! The service was outstanding-very professional.The menu was expansive but not over done. The food was really really good. A great tasting plate for 4 to... More

Business trip so it was just me, the staff were great, the menu had some interesting dishes as well as the more expected fare. It was all well prepared, fresh, and well executed. Good wine and beer range. Will be happy to go back.

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 a... More
