Attended Hollicks early December for a Christmas function. The atmosphere was amazing, service sufficient, however the food and wine was a real let down. The barramundi was watery and flavorless, the duck was dismal and on a very sad bed of iceberg lettuce, the beef appeared dry with very little else on the plate. As a collective we decided to...

I took my husband to Upstairs at Hollicks for his birthday. We didn't know what to expect and were blown away with incredible meals and perfect portion sizes. I had the beetroot ravioli and my husband ordered the eye fillet. Our waiter was professional and courteous with a good sense of humor. The accompanying wines were great and dessert was... More

We had a fabulous lunch here with friends visiting from overseas. In fact they went so far as to say this was the best meal they had had whilst in Australia. The food was amazing. The duck just superb but what really had us talking was the kids menu. We have never come across such fresh and appealing food from... More

We went for dinner and found the menu uninspiring - one choice each of ravioli, steak, duck, fish and chicken. The meals were nice but certainly not worth the high prices charged. Was interested to read the recent review about the quality of service because again, we found the service lacking with no consistency between the three waitresses allocated to... More

Saturday lunch and the setting is magnificent. Hannah who appeared to be in charge of front of house, was welcoming and professional. But from then on it goes down hill for us. Around the table for entrees we had the cauliflower soufflé and the duck salad. I think calling the soufflé a soufflé was done with poetic license. It was... More

This was the best restaurant we came across in Penola. The service was fantastic, the food was spectacular and the wine really nice. All topped off with a relaxing venue and great outlook onto vines.

The food was absolutely beautiful, in particular, there was a dessert with panna cotta and kaffir lime that I am still raving about!

Upstairs at Hollicks is a must for anyone visiting the Coonawarra. The food, staff, views and of course the wine list is sensational. This is our fourth visit and every time it has been everything we could hope for. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff are both knowledgeable and friendly. Love this place

We visited this lovely restaurant after visiting many fine Coonawarra vineyards. The restaurant has a decent range of dishes and found quality is excellent. Service friendly but they could have had an extra floor staffer. An excellent meal and worth revisiting. Don't forget to book as this place is favored by locals
