Fantastic hospitality

We were sitting in a pool at Halls Gap the day before and some locals said we HAD to visit Hollick's. We only stopped by for a wine tasting and coffee, but the girls here were outstandingly the nicest and most accommodating team in the area.

My wife and I had lunch here last week, we booked unfortunately approx. 30 others didn't. With limited staff they were extremely busy. Service was excellent and the food was cooked to perfection. We had three courses plus a bottle of Hollick's Wine and all courses were brilliant. For main I had the Soft Shelled Crab which was on the... More

Wonderful hospitality and conversation from the gentlemen at the restaurant. Only wish the lady at the wine tasting bar could have been as attentive. We were there on Saturday 7th Feb and enjoyed an excellent coffee served with small slices of brownie...couldn't have been better. Sadly, moving on to the wine tasting, it coincided with another two couples travelling in... More

Oysters so fresh it like the ocean in your mouth. Mater stock pork belly, fresh trout, a chesse board to die for and Hollick's delicious wines. Can't think of a better way to spend a lazy sunny afternoon then on the balcony, sipping Sparkling Merlot and chatting with friends. Well done Hollick's, a truly amazing dining experience.

Overcast cold weather, feeling dejected we decided to go for a drive out Mt Gambier late one morning direction Coonawarra. Just about there we headed into Hollick Vineyard and discovered "Upstairs at Hollick" restaurant. Next thing...blown away big time. After perusing the menu we decided on Ocean trout served on black rice. Suffice it to say it was cooked to... More

We enjoyed lunch here on a very hot day in January. The food was very good, (particularly the pork belly) although it was a bit odd on a 40+ degree day for cauliflower soup to be one of the specials! The service was attentive without being intrusive. Lovely views over the vineyards. Highly recommended.

How nice is it to sample an excellent range of wines, then select that wine to have with the meal! At the table "half" glasses of wines can also be purchased allowing further sampling on a larger scale. Great food and a lovely quiet setting, until a bus load of people enjoying a day out arrived. Food quality was excellent... More

Had lunch here impromptu after booking in for afternoon tasting during 2014 Coonawarra weekend festival. Tasted most of the wines at cellar door to pick which ones to have with lunch. Soup was very good, my companion also complimented his duck roulade. Was going to return for dinner next night but decided to go somewhere within walking distance instead of... More
