“A very nice dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Myself & 4 other people dined here on the 16th of November for lunch & the meals where superb. The restaurant was clean & tidy. Table service was excellent & efficient. We dined at lunch & had the following meals: Pumpkin soup, beef burger, Thai beef salad, Fettacini pasta, Ceaser salad & a tuna salad. The meals where well presented & tasted as good as it looked.

“Fantastic service and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

After traveling a few weeks, it's great to get such excellent service and wonderful food. Many places charge in that $25 -$35 main meal price range but few deliver a great experience. Penola station definitely delivers. The Spatchcock and Pork Belly dishes were tops.

“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We were told it was a new chef, and he was incredible. All five of us had different Entree, main course, and desert, and each one was incredible flavours and presentation. Meals came out not too early or late, service was prompt but not overbearing, and the music and atmosphere was just right. Overall an incredibly first class night out, and it only came to $60 a head (we thought it was a mistake. it wasn't.), including all beers and wine.

“A breath of fresh air in Penola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Great to see a new resturant in Penola.The meals were beautifully presented with high quality ingredients. Our food was all cooked perfectly - we ate the Spatchcock, Calamari and Salmon followed by lavender pannacotta and a pear crumble.

The new operators took over in September and have given the resturant a breath of fresh air and we were very delighted with the new management.

Very resonably priced for the standard of dining and a lovely evening out.
