Having dined in a Penola the night before, Upstairs at Hollick at a lot to live up to. It didn't disappoint! My entree was lovely, but I was not prepared for the main course of Black Angus Eye Fillet. It was the best steak I have eaten in years! The lamb was great according to my friends who had it....

We visited Hollicks for a birthday celebration - food was good, not excellent or outstanding but perfectly enjoyable, wines fairly average (Hollicks) - the Wilga shiraz being the pick. The service was appalling - wait for water, reminder re wine which didnt arrive until halfway through the main... reminders ready to order ( for both courses). The staff seemed to... More

We always eat at Hollicks when in the Coonawarra. This time we went to the long lunch (1st Friday of every month) hosted by Wendy Hollick and only for 20 Pax. It was just great. Wine matched degustation menu (5 courses) with 2 wines per course (current vintage and a cellared older vintage). Supurb. Do yourselves a favour and eat... More

A fabulous lunch was had by the five of us here today and not one of us was disappointed in any of the courses. Spot on attentive service by the friendly wait staff and the food was just perfect. I had the braised ham hock and mustard butter terrine for an entree which was simply to die for, for mains... More

Once again we had a wonderful meal, which is why we keep going back. Great front of house service to compliment the exceptional meal. Entree was a good size. As always, steak was cooked to both our liking - one medium and one well done. If you ever want to have a steak cooked to (your) perfection a trip here... More

Having read the great reviews on trip advisor we visited Hollick Winery for wine tasting and lunch and had a great experience. Staff we're very welcoming and provided excellent service, the food was faultless, wide range of menu choices with some daily specials, local produce where possible. The restaurant overlooks the vineyard with a deck outside and the wine barrels... More

Food was fantastic, scenary was just amazing. Service was great. We wld go back in a heart beat. Pricy, but we felt we got great value for money. We sat inside to have our lunch then moved out the verandah for dessert and coffee. it was a very memorable relaxing 2 hrs of lunch in the best wine region.

An excellent restaurant with great service. The menu was great with local foods featured as much as possible. The dessert I had there was the best I've ever eaten and I've eaten a lot of desserts. It was a white chocolate panna cotta with dark belgian chocolate and salted caramel - Yum! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone ..

At the end of a long morning of wine tasting we arrived at Hollicks where we'd booked for a late lunch. Serving staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, the food was really tasty and the general ambience of the restaurant was perfect.

We had lunch at Hollicks and enjoyed the lovely spring view over the vineyards. Both entrees of sweet potato soup and turkey liver pate were excellent. The beef dish was also wonderful. My wife's dish of duck with bok Choy and noodles was only partially successful. The duck itself was lovely as was the steamed bok Choy however the noodles... More
