“You must eat here when on KI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014 via mobile

The ONLY place on the whole island for your fish dinner. Deceptively plain in appearance and in its location besides the Caltex in Kingscote, it has friendly staff and deliciously cooked fish. I can vouch for the King George Whiting and the Butterfish myself. Chips were just right too. Ditch those little boxes though - everyone knows the best fish and chips only come wrapped in paper.

Thankyou for your review and yes I too remember as a kid getting our fish and chips all wrapped up together It was great. The reason we don't do it is because they used a tempura batter which held the fish better but these days people want a light crispy batter and I have found it sweats to much especially when the fish is supa fresh, but in saying that we do have customers that will ask for it all to be wrapped. again thankyou for talking the time to review us and if in the future you visit us again ask for it to be wrapped and we will be more than happy to do so. Regards Tina

“Great feed of fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Great feed of fish, genuine friendly service. We shared a seafood combo and a couple of pieces of fish, the calamari strips were melt in the mouth, and salt and pepper squid was very nice too. The service was friendly and you could buy fresh fish also, local fish was highlighted with a yellow tag to make it easy to identify, I would definitely go back again.

“The best takeaway fish & chips ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Really wanted to have fish and chips on KI since we were on an island and was recommended to come here. Great advice as we were very happy with the great country service and the excellent fresh seafood. WE decided to go and eat on the beach but if the weather isn't good you can dine in. Highly recommend!

“Fresh seafood and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

An island and fresh seafood go hand in hand! KI Fresh Seafoods in Kingscote ( at the garage) did not disappoint. We made our way from Penneshaw after disembarking the ferry straight to this eatery for lunch.
Sophie ( hope I remembered correctly!) was terrific. Staff advice and service was really appreciated and ended up with us eating in and having a delicious seafood banquet!
Cooked perfectly, presented perfectly - the whiting, scallops , calamari ( and chips of course!) were succulent and the prices were very reasonable.
We were so impressed we went out of our way to return for lunch before we left 2 days later! And it was just as good second time around!
Tonight we are cooking up fresh fish the staff packaged up for us to bring home...
Fresh seafood and friendly staff! Wow!
