We decided to dine at Piper's whilst on our wine tour of the Coonawarra. We had heard good things about this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The room is a lovely converted church, tastefully decorated with spaciously placed tables. We had starters of scallops,...More

Pipers of Penola provided one of the best dining experiences I have had. The food was delicious, the wine list extensive, the surroundings comfortable and the service was impeccable. I wish I lived closer so I could return.

A converted small church is allegedly the best restaurant in Coonawarra. Service and food was fine if not remarkable. Wine was good - a bit more age than locally readily available with a tolerable mark-up.

This is set in an old church right in the middle of town. It is not a large restaurant but the quality of the food is excellent. It is a very creative menu. The duck with a Szechuan glaze was terrific. Bookings are definitely recommended

Pipers was a great surprise. It was recommended by a winery we visited and can I say it lived up to the recommendation. Great service, great local food and wine.

Pipers is normally open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday and shut on Sunday and Monday. So, I don't think they will be open on Anzac Day
