What a wonderful meal! On a romantic trip away we stopped in to have dinner after hearing so much about it! The meal was cooked to perfection and the young lady serving was excellent! Tayla made our night by bringing the dessert out with a candle, as it was my husbands birthday. Thanks tayla for a wonderful night!!!

After an enjoyable light lunch we decided to go back for dinner. The lunch waitress, Tayla, was there again for the dinner service. What a bubbly personality! Our meals were excellent and chef went out of his way to provide a hot dessert when we expressed our disappointment that no 'warm pudding' was available. The wine list is impressive with... More

Spur of the moment, thought we'd drop in for lunch, based on reports of new and improved management. First indication of things not being altogether tickety boo was the heathy carpet of algae on the bottom & sides of the complimentary water bottle. Given we are not aquatic snails, this probably wasn't necessary, though if we were, it would have... More

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

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.
