When on Kangaroo Island you don't have much choice for evening meals unless your in Kingscote as the rest of the island pretty much shuts at 5pm. Parndana Hotel is in the center of the island and serves food till around 8.30pm/9pm. We arrived it looked cosy and was busy so we thought we would be fine. Having arrived around 7.30 we decided to order food then sit and enjoy a drink. at around 8.20 once all those who were served in front of us including what looked like a sports team we noticed the serving staff sitting down to eat. On inquiring we heard dishes being washed in the kitchen... eventually we were told that the kitchen hadn't received our order and could we decide whether we still wanted to eat. When I asked what they would do about this mistake we were told we could have some free garlic bread whilst we waited without the hint of an apology. We were also asked why didn't we ask sooner where our meals were... shocking service. eventually they also brought us a free drink but there was no apology and the staff continued to eat their meal whilst our were quickly put together by kitchen staff, The food was OK but in most cases quickly fried or warmed and my wife's mash potato well not mashed!
Never would I recommend or go back to this place and should have decided to drive the extra 100km to Kingscote to eat out. Don't go here!
