Fodor's Review

One of Bendigo's most decorative old buildings is the perfect setting for this restaurant's fine French-accented food, starched white tablecloths and exemplary, yet friendly, service. The menu reflects the best of local produce, and you might start with ravioli of Crystal Bay prawns with leeks, peas and a sorrel emulsion; the gorgonzola souffle; or the spiced kangaroo salad. For the main course, try the butternut pumpkin fondant served with a pearl barley fritter, goats curd, pickled walnuts and a grain mustard dressing or the free range chicken breast with preserved lemon, cauliflower, almonds, and tarragon. Make sure you leave room for the passionfruit parfait or a chocolate treat. The wine list showcases local wineries.
