Enjoyed a beautiful lunch. Pleasant vista, exciting flavours, good size mains, washed down with great wine.

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

The inside atmosphere at Hollicks is inviting, although the myriad of green walls was a little unsettling on my stomach! The food however was sensational. I had the gum smoked duck salad that was light and excitingly refreshing. We all had the sirloin which was cooked as ordered and melted in our mouths. It was dark outside and we were... More

As advertised, Upstairs at Hollick is located on the level above their cellar door; the restaurant has a warm and inviting atmosphere and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the vines. Our experience with the food here was mixed. The Angus sirloin was chewy and sinew-riddled, but cooked as ordered ($39). To their credit, when we mentioned that we were disappointed in the... More

We went along to first Friday lunch last month on a grape grazing trip to Coonawarra. Matched wines with an excellent selection of Hollicks own wines. The chef should take a bow, highly impressive menu. The winemaker Joe ate with us and it added a wonderful element to the day. This meal takes it tight to some of the more... More

As always stunning food. This visit we had a ravioli and a lamb dish between is. Both could not be faulted. We couldn't go past ordering a side of crispy potatoes and a serve of greens also, so completely over ordered between the two of us, it was all delicious. The waiter who looked after us provided excellent service, and... More

We've visited Upstairs many times since it opened following the refurb of the Hollicks cellar door many years back. Previously we've rated Upstairs highly - not so any more. Maybe it was an off night but, especially for a Saturday, there were too many slip ups - a nondescript salad containing duck which tasted as though it was cooked a... More

We booked and dined here for lunch on my Wife's birthday and were in no way disappointed. Mid week the restaurant was not crowded and the service was impeccable. The meals ordered, lamb and beef were excellent in presentation and taste. We accepted the Chefs recommendation on accompanying wines and these were well chosen. Penola has other fine dining and...
