Tried the wines here and enjoyed most and made several purchases. Only went into the restaurant for a coffee before heading on. Coffee very nice, view over vineyard fantastic, will have to have lunch here next time we come here. Considerable savings on wine if you join their club. Staff were friendly, helpful and lovely to deal with, definitely want... More

Was looking forward to a romantic evening with delicious food accompanied with good wine. Had heard this place was pretty good. While we enjoyed the wine the food was not memorable. The menu was less than inspiring with fairly basic choices. We could have cooked a better steak on the webber Q at home. The steak we were served was... More

We arrived at Hollicks and had previously booked for the first Friday of the month luncheon with the winemaker. This was the second time we have done this and it was a brilliant experience. Before lunch we went with the winemaker and barrel tasted some up and coming wines. Lunch was excellent. High end food with matching wines. We had... More

Four of us on a road trip around South Australia stopped in the Coonawarra, Penola to be precise. Pleasant place and we visited a couple of wineries which was enjoyable. We had lunch at Hollicks. The people were very pleasant. The lunch was pricier than we wanted. Two of us had duck which was very good. One had salmon -... More

We had lunch here on our last day and we were less then impressed after all l had read about it. The setting is lovely and we were lucky enough to be there on a beautiful day and could enjoy a wine out side but the food for the price was just average. The lady down stairs doing the tastings...

We have eaten here before and really liked everything about the place. This time however, the food seemed to be below the standard of previous visits. The welcome and winetasting were as friendly and enjoyable as always and the welcome and service by our waitress was excellent. She provided knowledgeable, efficient and friendly service throughout the meal. Our entrees of... More

I was going to have the pasta but next table volunteered that it was not good and warned against it!. One waitress was wonderful - informative and helpful the... More

We had lunch with friends here during our wine exploration in the coonawarra region. The foods are not as great as what we have heard from other people. I ordered a steak to be cooked to rare but it came medium done and the mashed potato had chunks in it and wasn't neatly served on the plate. For the price... More
