Nestled under a chic black awning on Queen Street in the heart of Bendigo’s bustling CBD district awaits Masons of Bendigo – a modern, sophisticated restaurant with a welcoming relaxed ambience. First opened on March 26 2012, husband and wife chef team Nick and Sonia Anthony have carved out a unique place in Bendigo’s increasingly vibrant culinary scene. Providing lunch and dinner service 5 days a week, like a great Bordeaux, Masons of Bendigo is a unique expression of its location, its environment and the people.
With a culmination of local and international experience over a 20 year period, Nick and Sonia’s focus is to highlight the exceptional local produce of Central Victoria and to develop relationships with the farmers and primary producer’s creating a direct link from paddock to plate ethos. French and English food styles feature on Nick’s menus from his experiences in London and Melbourne, whilst Asian flavours have evolved from his time with Teage Ezard @ Ezards and as Executive Sous Chef at the Ritz Carlton Millenia in Singapore. Enjoy a dish of McIvor Farm Berkshire pork fillet, crisp belly and breaded shoulder with apple pudding, morcilla and crackle pinwheel or chicken and ginger steamed dumplings with laksa broth.
Thrilled to have been awarded GOLD at the 2016 Australian Tourism Awards 'Restaurant and Catering' category, Masons provides a range of products, services and experiences for visitors to the venue itself, and to Bendigo and the greater region. As always these are about showcasing the excellence in local produce and producers.
Masons of Bendigo has a choice of function spaces to suit. As well as the restaurant space downstairs, we offer four dining room options upstairs. A large sit down space for 32 guests, another for 22 guests with the remaining two spaces catering for up to 12 guests. Watch this cool video showing our function space:
The entire upstairs space is able to cater for cocktail style functions for 40 – 65 people.
The restaurant space is also available for larger events requiring the entire dining room. A banquet style menu is offered, in a similar share style as the a la carte menu, with alterations available for those with dietary requirements.
Masons of Bendigo is open from Tuesday to Saturday for lunch from 12 noon until 3pm and dinner from 6pm until late.
