Reasonable prices for excellent food. We had steak, lamb stew, and fish - all really well-prepared. Service is friendly and well-organized. The building is quaintly rustic - perfect for the setting!

Staying at Vivonne Bay this was the closest restaurant, although still half hour drive. It's a rustic and casual place and we thought prices a little high for this type of dining experience. We had mixed feeling about the food. The honey and bacon loaf...More

Given that this is the only restaurant within a 75km radius serving dinner, one might expect average service and quality. However based on the 2 dinners we ate there it was not the case, Great food and great service. A real pleasure.

Staff were lovely and the food was homely - I felt like the prices were high for the quality, but this may be due to the remote location. Limited vegetarian options also.

This restaurant is attached to the Wilderness Retreat. The food is really good with a nice range of options including 2 for vegetarians. The wine list is predominantly Kangaroo Island producers. The staff were attentive with out being overbearing.

Very impressed with the food. Great variety and quality highlighting local produce. Also recommend gourmet lunch packs that you pre-order.

It is hard to run a restaurant in a remote location like this. There were 2 staff (chef and front of house) who did their jobs, and that's about it. The food was OK and the prices slightly on the high side. The service was...More

Wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the kangaroo and the lamb and both were amazing, particularly the kangaroo which was perfect. The cheesecake also was divine. The staff were lovely, and went out of their way to make sure we had a...More
