Friendly service and generous serves

We visited Penola Station on a very quiet Wednesday night. The waitress was extremely friendly and happy to chat about local wineries, even researching the location of a winery we wanted to visit.

The food here was fabulous!!! Had a three course dinner here and was not disappointed; meals were tasty, well presented and portion sizes were generous. Waiting staff were also prompt, courteous and very helpful. It all made for a very pleasant night.

A not so busy place but no lamb,champagne, off wine and limited deserts. Apart from all that it was great. Was told they had a busy day Friday... Got discount and all is well. Poor female waiter had to do it all...A brave effort cheers..

There were only the five of us in the restaurant at the time, but the atmosphere was cosy and warm out of the cold night air. I come here quite often so I've had pretty much everything on the menu.

We went to Penola Station Restaurant last Monday night and it was a delightful experience. The young manager who has an infectious personality was very helpful in explaining the menu and looked after us so well. The restaurant is in the centre of town and quite large. Monday night was quiet so no problem getting a table but recommend bookings... More
