The food was reasonably priced, freshly cooked and well presented. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Served one of the best pot's of tea in South Australia.

Like everything else on the island, burgers were quite expensive, and the salmon was even more so. We enjoyed the beef burgers (decent patties) but walked away feeling like we could've cooked up some on a BBQ and it would've tasted about the same for a third of the cost.

Food was reasonable - we had a vegetarian baguette and a turkey cranberry baguette. Prices were quite high but that is usual for KI. One staff member rather rude when I asked if I was in the right queue. But others were helpful and friendly. Nice outdoors seating area.

There aren't many options to eat in this area however I suggest you avoid this one if possible. We arrived for a late lunch at 2pm and were told after ordering and paying that there was a 'bit of a wait' for the food to be served. After waiting 45mins we were told if would be no longer than another... More

There are few places to eat at or near Flinders Chase and this is a good option for a quick lunch. Busy when we were there but staff pleasant and had a sense of urgency to get people fed.

Nice sandwiches, deserts, and snacks. As with most of the island, flies are annoying outside - get one of the few tables inside if possible. Eat quickly then get out and hike!!!!

This is the only place to get food in and around the Flinders Chase National Park. The food was good though at an expectedly higher price.

Dropped in for last meal before the 5 day wilderness trail and had the burger combo. Enjoyed it, albeit priced a little higher than I may have normally paid elsewhere. Quality was good though but offset by the staff who seemed to be working for a wage, rather than working in the happiest place on earth.

Thank Steve W
