For a flying visit to Bendigo we chose Rocks on Rosalind from a number of great sounding places in Bendigo to eat - a bit fancy but with better service and not as snooty as another well known place there. It was very good. Main courses were great - Spanner Crab angel hair was my choice and the vegetarian pasta met the needs of a quite particular teenager - but the pork buns for entrée were a bit tasteless and the bun not as fluffy as I have had elsewhere. The MD was very effusive in his assistance with choosing wine and was gracious in taking back a bottle of wine he had recommended to us that did not meet our tastes. I had a great funky XPA beer there too. If we lived in Bendigo we would be back!

We were there, for diner, with clients. We had the "Tasting Menu" and have not been disappointed. The food was well presented and fresh. The service was great. The cocktails delicious ! I would definitely recommend the restaurant and will surely book a table again should we have the occasion to return to the historic city of Bendigo.

The overall dining experience was fantastic. The waiters that served our table where fantastic, friendly and helped with the fussy eaters, they were very helpful with food choices but also with wine recommendations. The food exceeded expectations and we left feeling very full and satisfied, we came in with the expectation that we were going to need a trip to maccas drive through afterwards and that was definitely not the case.

We were very impressed and satisfied, so much so we couldn't help but tip the remainder of our vouchers. Thank you very much!

The meal was fantastic, more than you would expect from regional dinning; a credit to the chef. However some subtle elements were missing. For example, linen tablecloths in the old 'vault' would have created a heightened experience. In the bathrooms, we were surprised to find liquid soap commonly purchased at supermarkets in the racks; more disappointing was to find it was watered down so it would go further. This is a great restaurant for a business dinner but not a romantic dinner to make the ultimate impression. Think about changing the lighting in the vault to create more of an intimate ambience, think dimmers and perhaps candles on the tables.

Terrible experience for my birthday which I was really looking forward too! 😥 Booked a table at 7.15 and had to wait in the bar to be seated until 8pm. Ordered steaks which came out an hour later at 9pm, waiter told us the steaks took so long because they had to rest? Told the staff how unhappy we were and may as well been talking to a wet mop. Have been here before, but will not be back after this experience.

Such a fabulous way to celebrate International Women's Day 2018, with my 96 year old and 89 year old father. Finn is a born communicator who is clearly passionate about his restaurant and staff; and with good reason. I have celebrated a birthday here before in the bank vault, and joined in on an 18th celebration in the cellar and have never been disappointed. Their GF options are terrific too - and their chocolate tasting dish is to die for.

Very pretentious, poor service, real middle class snobbery.
The waiter was more concerned with returning to the bar to send massages than on providing service.
Food was good but not good enough to put up with that crap - I am, after all, the customer who pays his wage - reality check folks

The overall meal was good but my main steak dish was very ordinary. The steak was porterhouse and was a terrible steak. The meal itself lacked flavour overall, it just didn't make sense, and was a disappointment. When serving any dish there should always be notification of any nuts. We ordered ice cream and found nuts within the dish that we did not realise where there. The service was great... I would probably go again and appreciated the discount for my meal but must admit I was expecting a Wow factor that I just didn't get.....

Didn't get off to a great start, we were seated and offered water. After about 15min. our waiter came around to get our order. We ask if we could have a drinks list first, as there were none on the table. The waiter borrowed a drinks list from the table next to us. Entrees were really good, the curry for main had overcooked seafood, and the dessert was very good.

The Vault was too claustrophobic and we ate outside. For a highly priced meal, quality was great, quantity was not. Service was slow but staff were very friendly.

Booked on Friday online for Saturday night to celebrate an engagement, Finn called me about an hour afterwards and was very welcoming and asked me if there was anything at all he could help me with, then when we arrived every staff member congratulated us and were very professional, was the first time I’ve ever been there and it won’t be the last, i highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants an amazing night.
Also I’ve never had food that good in my life, I can’t thank these guys enough!

Our meal and general experience was great but we were left somewhat confused by the drinks waitress. At the start of the evening our waitress came to our table ask us what we'd like to drink but provided neither a drinks list nor any options about what was available. Unable to order, I suggested to her that we might need a drinks list before we could make a decision. She then advised me that there were no drinks lists available at present because they were busy and then continued stand and wait expectantly for an order. In the end we managed to fumble through some drink orders but I was left disappointed that we had to settle for generic orders such as 'a light beer' and 'a sparkling wine'.

I understand these things can happen on a busy night and possibly our waitress was a little inexperienced, but it would have been helpful if she could have explained the situation and then help us out rather than standing expectantly while we had to guess what might be on a drinks list. A drinks list was provided half way through our entree. Fortunately we did receive a dinner menu.

We were so impressed with the vegetarian options and the creativity from the kitchen. The flavours were excellent and unique with a good balance across all dishes. It was refreshing to see a clever menu that was not pretentious but very flavoursome. Pleasant floor staff also made the evening go well. Overall a great experience from start to finish.
