“Good but a little too old fashioned.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

The wines were nice, however, I found the place needs a freshen up as the fittings and decore is too eclectic for my liking.

“Great wine, food, art and character(s)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

This is one of Kangaroo Island's hidden gems. Get a table on the verandah, a bottle of their wine (recommend the rosé) and settle in for the afternoon. The mixed platter is for which to die - various meats, vegies, salads and so on - KI produce where possible and local where not. I'd love to know how they do the crisp salami.

Before you wander off, don't forget to have a look at the art inside.

They're closed Tuesday and Wednesday and in the depths of winter - give them a ring to check availability on 08 8553 1371

“Great platter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

A somewhat eccentric place which looks a little tired on first approach. Turned out to be a delightul lunch with a number of families enjoying the play equipment which kept the children well entertained. Platter was very good and ample washed down with some decent wine. Would be very easy to settle in here for the afternoon as long as you have a designated driver.

“Superb food and wine, and you can fly in!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

Fantastic platter for two, brilliant tastes complimented by more than one bottle of delicious rose. Our visit included chatting with Bruce and Diana, looking at the wonderful local art, and a game of bocce. The little airstrip tops off this wonderful place. A 'must' while on Kangaroo Island! Oh, the lemon curd cheesecake is brilliant!
