Go here!! Three of us booked at short notice and thankfully got a table at 8.15pm. A set 5 course “trust the chef” $80/head menu. Heck - I’d trust this chef WITH MY LIFE! Fabulous share plates of 2-3-4 items per course of fresh, interesting...flavours which worked so well together. Balanced and beautifully surprising, without being pretentious. Service was attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and well paced. Neat and varied local KI and SA wine list. Don’t miss this one if you are visiting. Well worth with visit.More

Visited for dinner as part of our Truly Tribal K.I. Tour. From the moment we entered to the moment we left the service was exceptional. The food was plentiful and the flavours and textures were superb. I have eaten in many fine dining restaurants around...the world and this little establishment is up there with the big guys. Each course was just right and none outshone the other. The whole experience is one I will never forget.More

We are big fans of a set price shared menu concept and the Odd Plate did it really well. The vegetable and fish dishes were the stand out - really interesting, delicious flavours and textures. Lovely dining area and friendly staff. Good reasonably priced wine’...list - although it would have been nice to have a decent cider as an option. Thoroughly recommend the experience.More

We loved everything about our dining experience at The Odd Plate. We had the Feed Me menu and for a group of 3 we had plenty of food to eat. Staff were attentive and helpful and it would have been helpful to have a copy...of the menu as ingredients were so varied that you forgot what the waiter had said. Innovative food and lovely dining experience in a beautiful old buildingMore

My husband Trevor took me to this restuarant for my birthday. Wonderful food, went to the kitchen to thank the chefs and my husband paid for the meal $202,00. As we were leaving the head waiter/owner? stopped my husband and accused him of not paying....He had to show her our receipt - disgraceful. Never have I been so humiliated and accused of leaving without paying. Beware of this restuarant and the Chinese owner.More

A wonderful dining experience on KI. Food was excellent, the menu creative and the service attentive. Chef’s selection degustation is definitely the way to go.

Best food that I have had in years. Small plates of delicious food to share. Excellent service and interesting cocktails. Finding the restaurant was difficult- there is no signage - but we would definitely recommend!

Superb experience. Best tasting menu I have ever experienced. We were given eight courses from the attached menu. Excellent service. Drank a Kangaroo Island gin and a lovely glass of red wine from Adelaide Hills. I could not recommend this experience more highly.

An absolute culinary delight in Kingscote! We were a table of 4 who enjoyed every morsel placed in front of us that evening> From the starter of Chorizo jam, house cured salmon pastrami, slow cooked lamb shoulder and our dessert. But the stand out was...the roasted cabbage in a garlic emulsion - so simple and yet so perfect, we are all still talking about it. You will not regret a visit to The Odd Plate, food, service and atmosphere were all a 10/10More

We had a wonderful meal here, the food was innovative and delicious and the service and wine recommendations were perfect. Our only issue was finding the place, it is adjacent to the Seaside Motel and we didn't see any sign saying The Odd Plate so...stood outside and Googled to check the address and read that it was in a heritage building so we knew were in the right place.More

Went to the odd plate for a special dinner. Just a hop and skip from Ozone Hotel so was very close to accomodation in Kingscote. The menu was excellent and good value. Service was impeccable. You can ask for byo for that special bottle you...have and they will email if ok or not. But we had no problems. The restaurant is in an old foreshore building next to a motel but quite easy to find. We loved the food which easily is as good as any we have had in the city. Really worth a visit.More

The Odd Plate are currently only serving a feed-me menu. However, they varied the dishes to suit our tastes. We were told the chef's were previously at the $2000+ per night Southern Ocean Lodge resort, which burnt down in the 2020 bushfires, and it shows....The food portions were appropriate and each course was full of interesting and unusual flavour combinations. We particularly liked the smoked snook taramasalata, but the rare KI beef served with olives (salty), jus, roasted cabbage (charred and slightly bitter) and heirloom tomatoes (sweet) was a wonderful combination. Highly recommended.More
