Top choice steak in Bendigo

In a warehouse-style space clad in warm brick tones, Woodhouse has some of the finest steaks you'll find in regional Victoria – all cooked on a red-gum wood-fired grill. The wagyu tasting plate ($68) is pricey but close to heaven for dedicated (and hungry) carnivores. The smoky wagyu burger also comes off the grill, while the thin-crust pizzas are seriously gourmet.

The $24 lunch special (Tuesday to Saturday) gets you pizza and a glass of wine or craft beer.
