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...

Six of us ate lunch over the June long weekend. All of the food was stunning including entrees, mains and deserts - every one of us was impressed. We kept ordering, so much so that we missed a few wineries as a result. Friendly service too allowing us to take our deserts outside to eat on the balcony with coffee.

Passed by on our way back to Mount Gambier from Naracoorte. Decided to pop by for lunch at the last minute. We were very fortunate they were able to accommodate us (we have 9 people in our traveling party) as we didn't have a reservation. Service was good and the view of the vineyards was fantastic. I have to say... More

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....
