Fast and Friendly service

We visited here twice on a 3 night stay on Kangaroo Island and loved it each time. We particularly loved the King George Whiting so fresh and cooked just right. Staff were friendly and efficient. Great job guys.

The place stocks some nice fresh seafood, like oysters. We bought oysters few times. Even took a pack with us to Adelaide. The service was terrific. This is also a great place to have a beautiful fried seafood dinner. We ate here couple times. And I can say that we were satisfied.

Went for dinner and ordered Combo Park and a whiting. The food is ok and the combo pack is great value at only $25. If you want to eat here, you go to hurry. They are closing from 31May15 after 9 years. Due to health reason.

Came to this place because of the good reviews on TripAdviser but got huge shock with my visit today. We ordered a quite few things including grilled fish, tiger prawns and the Combo Pack. Except from the prawn, the others were not fresh. It might has a bit to do with the off peak season and the place is pretty... More

Firstly I am a little bemused by your review I myself served you on 3 occasions no sorry 4 occasions, we were very busy last night and I spent considerable time with you before you made any decisions, and changes to your order.

You could miss this little place if you weren't aware of it - but it's worth looking for (next to Caltex) if you like really fresh seafood in a no-frills setting. We picked up a bottle of wine from the local bottle shop as they allow BYO. A constant stream of locals while we were there reinforced our impression that... More

Good reasonable size platters and nice friendly staff. You can also get a good range of fish and seafood by either having them prepare it for you or bringing it home to cook. Seafood is so fresh and amazing. It's not a nice high end restaurant but a good takeaway or quite eat in place if you need a quick... More

Next to the Caltex service station in Kingscote, Kangaroo Island Fresh Seafoods is friendly, yummy & affordable fish & chips & fresh seafood. Eat in or takeaway is available. On a sunny day, grab some chips & hang out at the Kingscote pool in the sea.

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor I did expect something better, The shop is incongruously hidden next to a petrol station and is bland but clean. Service is friendly as far as a fish and chip shop can be from behind a counter. Prices are reasonable and there is a limited selection of grilled or breaded fish and seafood with... More

Thankyou for taking the time to review us, I know our location is a bit strange but due to the fisherman being able to unload their catch this location has easy access for them to drive their boats in and unload, this could not be done in the main street of town. As for the seafood side we are limited... More

This is one of the most amazing places to get fish. First night we got take away and got grilled fish. The next night we had to go back, and the battered fish and chips and fish combo pack did not disappoint. Would be amazing to have this place closer to home but I will drive back there some day...
