Wine & Dine

The quaint towns of Penola and Coonawarra offer a range of casual and formal dining establishments and food outlets. From South Australia’s number 22 best-ranked fine dining restaurant, Pipers of Penola, to the multi-award winning Royal Oak Hotel Pub and the ever popular Windara Bakery.

Local eateries place great emphasis on using seasonal and local produce. The list of fresh Limestone Coast ingredients is limited only by the seasons, but the passion that goes into producing clean, green local produce is guaranteed year-round.

Penola’s Award-winning local IGA offers an extensive gourmet range including lovely cheeses, sauces and antipasti, and prides itself on supporting local producers. Popular local producers include Robe Dairy yoghurts, Limestone Coast Cheese Company in nearby Lucindale and Coonawarra Honey.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Please note that as a result of COVID-19, trading has changed for many regional businesses, including the number of guests able to be seated in a dining establishment at any given time.

We highly recommend you contact dining establishments to place your booking in advance.
