Pipers of Penola with WineWalkabout
Looking to take your lovely lady or significant other out
for a special meal. Usually not to hard to find a swanky upscale restaurant if
you put your mind to it. But what if you are in the country side of South East
South Australia in the tiny town of Penola. Population 1,300 or so. Well have no
fear as Pipers of Penola will do just fine. A nicely refurbish little Church
with a very comfortable feel elegantly furnished and with a not too cramped yet
cozy feel. First and foremost they have a fantastic wine list with a very
reasonable markup (nice) and a next to nothing $10 corkage although only two
bottles per table (that’s doable with that wine list). The food here is
definitely foodie style and maybe not for the meat and potato with nothing touching
kind of bloke or Sheila. The menu is a little limited but covers all the bases
and is presented beautifully. It tasted as good as it looked. This place has been around a while and has
collected a number of awards;

That’s a fairly impressive list of awards and probably
Koala and his lovely lady had a nice dinner experience
and the food by Chef Simon was delicious and the table service from Erika was
on the money.
For a fancy dinner date while in Penola or the Coonawara
area, Koala give’s Pipers of Penola a “Recommend”. So go check it out.
