On a visit to Penola my wife and I dined at the Penola Station following a recommendation from our motel. We were very pleased with our choice as the meal was excellent. Service was very good and the cost was very moderate. A good dining experience.

Solely on the basis of other reviews on this site I booked dinner for nine foodie friends at Penola Station on the Saturday night of the 2013 Coonawarra Arts Festival. The reputation of this restaurant is well deserved! The room is warm and welcoming, the menu creative, the meals beautifully prepared and presented, the food and wine service knowledgeable and prompt. Congratulations and thanks to our waiter Paula, chef Tom and his apprentice Andy. Please support this fantastic young team. ***** Highly recommended.

When you travel to penola you can't miss penola station restaurant the kind of food you would expect in the heart of Melbourne. Food was cooked to perfection, the lamb rack was breathtaking so juicy every mouthful was a treat. Extensive wine list as you would expect in coonawarra excellent service. We will certainly be back *****

We were told that few cafes would be open in Coonawarra due to it being a holiday. But Penola Station was -- and it was excellent. Service was great (even with it being the waiter's first day on the job), and the food was beautifully prepared and served. Our expectations were not so high, so this turned into a wonderful surprise -- all expectations were exceeded!

Had a night with friends and work colleagues, five of us in all. Food was beautiful and menu had good choices. The quality and size of meal was more than acceptable and overall I would recommend this venue for a nice evening of fine dining.
