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...

The fish is fresh and yummy, staff is friendly, and nothing is a problem. The seafood shop is located next to the Caltex petrol station. You can eat in or out. We ate our fish at one of the picnic tables across the road.

Fish and Chips, but *local* fish and chips. Fresh and high quality. We'd certainly go back. The lady who served us was the friendliest person we met on our whole trip.

Recommended to try this seafood shop by my tour guide on my kangaroo island trip. A short walk from the seafront, beside a petrol station is this great seafood shop. Everything is fresh. The fish and chips were very yummy and a generous portion size. Can eat in or take out. Used by the locals, so you know it is... More

If you want some fresh seafood, this is the place to go in Kingscote. It's a fish and chip style outlet attached to a gas station but don't let that fool you. You can get a great variety of fresh seafood and they will either sell it to you that way or cook it up the way you like it... More
