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.

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.

We booked for dinner at the last minute on a Monday night when very little else in town was open, thinking that the place looked pleasant enough and the food was probably O.K. and the only alternative for dinner was in one of the pubs.

Quite frankly we were amazed with the level of service and the quality of the food.

Starting with the beautiful bread which must have been home made, we continued with the entree tasting plate for two, which was a beautifully presented board of well-executed delicacies.

For a main course, I had wallaby which was cooked to pefection and my wife had marron which she really enjoyed.

The sevice was friendly, the waitress was extremely helpful and there were good wines served by the glass. What was supposed to be a low key meal to stave off hunger, turned into a delightful evening.
