Food and staff was lovely. I really Love the gnocchi and lamb my wife loved the scallops. The waitress was very nice and service was good too. The restaurant was beautiful overlooking the vines and being a winery the wine was great too. Will definitely be back when I come down again from Adelaide. Thanks for a lovely time. Ian

My husband and I called in to Hollicks for lunch on Saturday knowing that they had a special on as part of the Coonawarra Cabernet Celebrations. Even though we didn't have a booking they had room for us outside on the deck which was beautiful due partly to the weather as well as the wonderful views overlooking the vineyards. My... More

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

We LOVED our desert and coffee. Staff were all very friendly. Our next trip to Penola we will be sure to visit here for dinner or... 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
