The experience of looking out over all of Coonawarra is one thing, but the food and service make it an experience worth travelling a long way for. Great ambience set the scene even in the middle of winter, as the sun streamed in as we could see people pruning the vines in the distance. Will be back... read more

Recently visited for a Friday lunch with colleagues and was very impressed with the new menu. Tuna tataki for entree was cooked perfectly and flavour was great. Coffee rubbed eye fillet of beef ordered rare for main course was perfectly cooked and packed loads of flavour. Matched with a 2010 Wilgha Shiraz to top it all off, the whole experience... More

A delicious lunch in the sunshine with a view over the vines. Divine mushroom soufflé, handmade ravioli and steak cooked to perfection! Sumptuous dessert, and all well paired with Hollick wines. Highly recommended

What an experience. Seared tuna for entree. Lamb for mains & creme brûlée for sweets. Highlights are the wine that they had paired with each dish. The problem we did have was it's to far to walk back to Penola and there is no taxi service available locally. This meant no drinking for my dedicated driver. She missed out on... More

This establishment was recommended and we were not disappointed. It was a lovely sunny day - no wind and delicious food. The specially blended olive oil was sublime. I have never tasted such a flavoursome oil and was aware of it. If you are in the area, take a break from wine tasting and enjoy the view.

On the dinner trail in Red Wine Country The primary purpose of visiting wine country is to taste some wine(s) , but imbibing can bring on pangs of hunger and while most wine districts are relatively well served for lunch spots, the prospect of dinner – a good dinner can be more difficult. The Coonawarra district of South Australia is... More

Went here on a Sunday of a long weekend. We really enjoyed the whole experience. Came a little early to taste the wine and thoroughly enjoyed the personal and friendly service of the cellar door. Went upstairs when it was time for lunch and the staff were super friendly, drinks and water was prompt and the meals were delicious. The... More

Our favorite restaurant in Coonawarra. The atmosphere was great, the service was attentive and just right. I found the food to be of very good quality and the fish that we had as well as seared tuna tataki very very good. One comment on prices, this restaurant is priced in line with most fine dining restaurants in Australia, combined with... More
