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

Have been here twice in the last 2 months and both times the food and service was poor. If you're paying over $35 for a main course your expectations are high, but we were let down. Our waitress was curt and certainly didn't look like she wanted to be there. Much better quality and value for money meals available elsewhere... More
