we were traveling from the ocean road to Adelaide, and we stopped just one night in Penola... i think it is a very nice place, and this restaurant has been one of the best food experience in Australia.. good food, cooked with passion... we had also a very good bottle of wine... this place is really suggested!

Went for lunch as a couple and ordered the only gluten free meal available on the menu (Thai beef salad with noodles). Checked with the waitress to ensure it definitely was GF of which we were assured. Another waitress brought the meal to the table and it was quite obvious the noodles were not rice. The meal was swiftly removed,... More

$35 for rice, a small piece of fish, and tasteless capsicum cubes. Both our meals were a complete disappointment. Heavy metal music in the background just topped off the whole experience.

Heard this restaurant recently changed name and chef. Tried it out on a Friday night with my wife and parents. Very good menu, everything sounds delicious! We had the camembert and rosemary bread to share. It was a pizza like thin crispy bread, just out of oven, very different and tasty. Dad and I had the black Angus fillet, cooked... More

Very disappointing quality and portion size, for the price charged. Won't be coming back or recommending it to anyone. I ordered the veggie stack (only vegetarian option), and it came, and I actually wondered if it was a joke. It was a few slivers of vegetables, grilled, and served with a blasé mayonnaise based sauce. I was dining with a... More

Disappointing. Super expensive but quality of food rather bad. The salad came without dressing and the risotto with fish had only a few pieces of low quality in it.

A group of us went for tea recently, two people ordered steak and asked for them to be cooked to medium rare. The meals arrived promptly and both steaks were very rare and very cold. When the waiter asked about the meals, she asked the chef to come out. He was very abrupt and rude about his food, and almost... More
