When looking for a great lunch spot in Bendigo (especially if you are off to an exhibit at the Art Gallery) The Wine Bank on Viewis hard to pass by. Tucked halfway down the hill the gallery resides in this old victorian bank now wine cellar/restaurant/bar was a fantastic recommendation by HD. The gang and I headed up to Bendigo the weekend before Easter for a fantastic day trip to see the Grace Kelly Exhibition and had been trying to find somewhere for lunch beforehand.

The Wine Bank on View is located in a stunning building with a handful of tables inside and out and lined to the rafters with bottles of wine. The menu had something to suit all five of us (even if three us ordered the same thing with a minor variation on the theme). Anyone ever work out why we do this?

The weather had been surprisingly hot so it was nice to step inside and soak in the beautiful atmosphere (and get our hands on water). We had thankfully reserved a table and the staff had no issues when we arrived a bit early in seating us.

Bean, HD and I all selected the Tuscan Bread Salad with Bean and HD adding sesame seared Tuna (there was no vegetarian protein option available), Dino opting for home made sausage role and Dee selecting the wild Barramundi. The meals took some time to arrive (we were warned) but were generous and tasty and we all agreed good value. Half the group had wine with strong recommendations from the waiters and were duly impressed.

I would say the majority of patrons were off to the exhibition (more about that tomorrow) so there was a great buzzy atmosphere and a disproportionate number of women at the restaurant all adding to the sense of adventure for our expedition. The staff were also kind enough to quickly and easily split our bill at the bar making life easier for our larger group.

I happily recommend this little find for a great lunch in Bendigo!
