We were part of a 18 person group that dined here in a separate Dining room. It was a degustation menu that came in " waves". The food was exceptional, hard to express in words the exceptional quality ,taste, look etc. This was a first class experience. Can only recommend that one give it a try,you will not be disappointed.

This is an outstanding restaurant and would be to the fore in Melbourne, Sydney, London or New York. Service is outstanding; wine list excellent (with very good central Victorian wines by the glass); and food to die for. I recommend the chicken and ginger dumplings and the flat head tails. First rate. I will be back!

When we arrived at the surprisingly early time of 6, the only time we could book, the place was full! They encourage share plates so choosing the right amount of food may need some guidance, we over ordered, so dessert was off. The food itself is refined and thoughtful, with great use of local ingredients

We dined here as a group of 8 friends. Although we only booked for 6, adding 2 extras was no problem and done immediately. Venue a great place for all occasions. Service, menu, wine list and general ambiance excellent. This is the fourth time we have dined at Masons - and won's be the last! Each time we have been... More

Fantastic food - we opted for the roaming menu and were very impressed with the selection, quality and service. Each meal portion was perfect, the variety was excellent and the quality amazing.

It was a delight to discover 'Masons of Bendigo' on a recent trip. The 'roaming menu', a share-plate degustation of the best local produce, would not be out of place in a major metropolis. And excellent value at $62.50 a head. Thoroughly recommend it.

This restaurant can do no wrong. The menu was the most wonderful I have seen and when the chosen dishes arrived we were delighted with our choices. Staff were very helpful in their advice and service was 10 out of 10. The chefs are amazing. I would travel back to Bendigo just for the dining .

Living in country Victoria (Shepparton), coming across this restaurant close to us was a god send. Everything from the atmosphere to the food and of course the staff is nothing short of, in my opinion, excellence. We would travel 1.5 hours just to dine here, it's that good! Highly recommend the Roaming Banquet with lots of different dishes to excite... More

This is literally the best place to eat in bendigo. Always an amazing experience! My partner and I have been half a dozen times this year and actually cant get enough. Although I must warn that going here often makes other dining experiences at venues in the same price bracket disappointing. Its seriously that good.

Masons is hands down the best restaurant in Bendigo. The food is exceptional, the wait-staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Our waitress bent over backwards to ensure that our table were well looked after - specially catering the Roaming Banquet to satisfy food allergies and organising a special "vegan" version for one of our guests. Above and beyond. All this... More
