Places To Dine Out

The Flavours of Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island offers an impressive selection of cafes, restaurants, farm gates and cellar doors where you can taste some of the delightful local produce and treat yourself to a dining out experience. Admittedly, daytime options are more abundant, whereas evening dining a little less so, which is the reason many visitors eat out during their day’s adventures, and eat in back in their Retreat, on their return. This beautifully complements your self-cooking dining-in experience at Ecopia.

Here is our list of favourite eating and drinking places around the Island:
