Had a few really good meals here while staying at the apartments across the road. Food was fresh and very tasty and the service was good and staff very friendly. I do recommend that you book in advance so as not to miss out. Very...relaxing looking out to the water sipping on a wine or two or a couple of cocktails on another night.More

Rack of lamb advertised as medium- rare was so overcooked and dry the bones were charcoal and this after the food arrived 10 mins after ordering! Partner’s chicken swam in a revolting cream soup. No follow up offers for drinks or dessert. Probably worst pub...meal in a very long time! 2 stars is generous.More

The Zone offers fairly standard pub food. It’s good quality and a good amount. We got table service but this may have been under Covid19 restrictions. I had fish and chips which was delicious and my daughter had a chicken breast, also very good. Prices...a teeny bit high but still ok. A good mealMore

Hi there. Thank you so much for taking the time to review our restaurant. We are glad you enjoyed your meals and service. We do table service during dinner but bistro style during lunch as it is more casual.

A very disappointing evening for the 4 of us. Started when waiter came with pencil & pad wanting to take our orders when we had received menus less than 10 seconds prior!! After ordering, the Entrees were delivered promptly by a pleasant waitress. But 5...seconds later a waiter came to our table with 2 of our main course dishes in his hands!!! Of course the waiter took the two main course dishes back to the kitchen where they sat, along with a third dish, under an inefficient heating lamp drying out until being returned to our table upon completion of the entrees and a few minutes of digestion. But only 3 main course dishes were delivered - the fourth had been forgotten and hadn't been cooked!!! And the attitude of the head waitress was that all of this was our fault???? There are obviously some serious problems in the kitchen at the Zone Restaurant.More

It was a Monday so KI Fresh Seafoods was not an option for hot lunch. Tried the chicken party and SP squid at the Zone restaurant and was not disappointed. Excellent and fresh. Would have liked to see a seafood basket on offer. Just saying...

The lamb shanks were the best I have ever had. The service at the Zone Restaurant was very good - especially Maurice, he was exceptional.

My wife and I had dinner, I was sort of expecting more of the place because it is in a high priced hotel, but having got over not meeting expectations we did enjoy the experience, the service staff were friendly and very helpful, the food...service was quick, the quality of the food was average pub food, taste was ok, quantity of the serve was ok but the price was high. It is one of the few places to eat out in kingscoteMore

We were there for dinner, before the main season in December 2020. Generally a nice venue, friendly staff, finding a table for 2 without a booking. Unfortunately our docket did not print and the food took more than an hour to arrive. The lamb rack...was delicious, the risottto ok, but the rucola on top partly brown and had seen better days. However, staff were apologetic about the delay and gave us 10% off the food and upgraded to a large beer, rather than a small one. On the table next to ours there were three young men, who became louder and louder with the amount of alcohol consumed, leaving us with a pub feeling, rather than fine dining. All over not too bad, just not keeping up with the image they try to create.More

Unfortunately visitors have a misconceived idea that kangaroo Island is not a good place to visit during the colder months so with very few visitor numbers, restaurants cannot make an income and end up having to close. This... More
