Description: Step into our restaurant and watch your senses ignite. Smell the delicious smokiness of Bendigo's only Redgum char-grill and dedicated steak house, as we use our unique "cooking with wood" techniques. In the finest tradition of steakhouses across the globe we use locally sourced meat and the very best in fresh, regional produce. Enjoy in-house and regionally prepared Charcuterie, beef carpaccio, organic lamb, or local chorizo styled sausage. Try our free-range pasture-fed porterhouse or smoked Wagyu. Meat is always the star of the show.

“Certainly different and worth a visit!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Went as a 4, we were seated at a nice table and promptly given water and drinks orders taken. The wines and beers offered were well priced and contained some good local and craft choices.The Charcuterie and Carpaccio were a highlite, offering real variety and well presented and the waiter explained each part very comprehensively. We had Pizzas which were excellent (Beetroot and Pumpkin, Tiger Prawn and Special). We saw some huge steaks and some other well presented steaks that were popular on other tables. The place was full and i could see why. Good ambience, Good food and Good service!

“Good service on a busy night”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

A last minute booking on a busy night meant we accepted a table slot 30 minutes later than our preference. The booking process was friendly and professional. Greeting and tabling was similar. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and thoughtful. She suggested entree to tide us over to mains because of the demands on the kitchen. As it turned out mains were ready soon after we completed entree and waits were not outrageous. Trio of oysters and sesame bread were both very well presented. The oysters were particularly delicious.

The Wagyu was well prepared and presented - just a little less melt in the mouth than I would have liked. My wife had the Wagyu burger and had a fruitful discussion with the waitrss which led to it being presented without the bun. An excellent suggestion as it turned out.

Overall the meal was very good. Service was thoughtful and attentive without being intrusive.

“Very slow service”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Food was great but painfully slow with drinks and food service. And this on a Tuesday night! We were there to spend money but they really missed out on multiple rounds of drinks with the lack of attention.
