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

Can't give a regional resteraunt a perfect score but this one came close. Waitress Tayla was a delight though I did not have the heart to tell her that "yous" was not a word recognized in any dictionary sanctioned by any English speaking nation. That said, the food was fantastic. Diana's "wild caught" barramundi deep fried was a triumph whilst... More

Now called Coonawarra Station, the change of management was much needed. Staff were attentive, friendly and delightful to deal with (thanks Tayla!) . The restaurant allows for different dining options. Pizza out the back, a la carte dining inside and a great outdoor area. The menu was well thought out. Well done.

In Penola for the night, we stopped at this restaurant, glad that we found a place open on this a Monday night. As six tables in the restaurant were occupied and a fair amount of patrons were dining in the alfresco area at the back, we had the chance to watch the waitress running the show by herself. Slightly too... More

A real surprise. Walked in for a meal after grape grazing and stumbled on the outside pizza ovens and casual seating. The main menu looks fabulous but the pizza's were excellent. Lots of locals chatting in this relaxed friendly spot. Definitely worth while on a Friday night again.
