Great meal

Had a great meal recently at now named Coonawarra Station, although the place was very busy,our front of house Tayla provided excellent service, friendly,prompt and very professional. The meal was excellent, right sized potions and expertly put together. Can recommend unreservedly.

The food was of reasonably well prepared with a good range of wine in pleasant surroundings. It just lacked something to give it the boost to make it a great dining experience. However, our waitress was outstanding, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly

In some of the restaurant reviews I've done on Trip Advisor I've expressed the opinion that the restaurant in question might be fine for where it is, but would be found out if you put it somewhere else. Coonawarra (I hope I wouldn't be saying anything too bad in this) is off the beaten track, but Penola/Coonawarra Station is excellent,... More

I very much enjoyed eating at this restaurant! Lovely food, good prices, and such friendly service! We felt very looked after by the lovely young waitress. My husband and I enjoyed our dinner so much that we went back for lunch the next day! Would highly recommend this place.

Had a great meal here which was delivered to us by a friendly waitress. Could not have been more happier with the service we received as we felt comfortable and welcomed.

We were very impressed with this restaurant. We dropped in early in the evening and had a chat to a friendly and helpful waitress to check on the 'gluten free' options. We were assured that the chef could accommodate and modify most of the meals to ensure GF. We had a delicious meal and were impressed with the quality. The... More

Sunday January long weekend this restaurant was very busy. We did not book and was told that we could eat outside because they were fully booked but it was quite cool. The seated us around a wine barrel where they were cooking pizzas and could not do enough to help us. My partner was feeling cold and the next minute... More

The food was delicious, reasonably priced and the service was excellent. A talkative young lady, interesting and genuine. A great ambassador for her establishment. We'll visit there again.

Thanks Tayla for your welcoming service. You were able to provide for the many tables with professionalism. But the food was exceptional. There were four of us and we ordered risotto, pork belly for entree. Also lamb rack, barrimundi and steak for main. All cooked to perfection. A great evening after a great day with our friends wine tasting. Again... More
