Description: Leonards Mill is a regional restaurant in a 160 year old restored four mill. Our ethos is Eat Local and showcases the best that the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer. We are paddock to plate, nose to tail, root to leaf. At Leonards Mill our menu changes as the seasons do. Leonards Mill is home to a productive vegetable garden and vast array of fruit trees. Open for lunch Wednesday to Sunday and dinner on Friday and Saturday. Our wine list showcases local boutique wineries. Alfresco dining on the deck in warmer months and inside when it’s cold. The Mill is a stunning 75 minute drive from Adelaide through the most beautiful landscapes on the Fleurieu. Located ten minutes from Yankalilla and Normanville and 15 minutes to the Kangaroo Island Ferry at Cape Jervis. We look forward to seeing you soon.

We had the best experience dining at Leonard's Mill for a couple of birthdays!! The setting is glorious - it really is a beautiful spot. And the service, from the second we walked in the door, was second to none. Each of the three people that attended our table were a sheer delight and made us feel so welcome. They even took a group photo for us outside! Thank you!! The food was incredible, the degustation experience comprised of delicious, local ingredients. The salmon was amazing. All in all we had a wonderful day, and can't wait to visit Leonard's Mill for another occasion!!!

My friend and I ate here today. To maximise our tasting opportunities we chose the 4 entrées plus 2 sides. The menu is different and delicious.
It's based on seasonal local produce so it varies frequently.
Be warned however.....when I googled the restaurant,the first result was an ad for dimmi,the booking service. It indicated there was nothing available for lunch time. Fortunately I rang the restaurant direct and we were able to get a table. So don't be fooled....direct is best.
Thank you team....excellent experience.

This place was recommended to us as a great place to stop for lunch on our way back from Victor Harbor, unfortunately we didn't find that to be the case.
The prices on the menu were not for a lunch time menu and when we said we would just have a drink and leave we were shown another menu of platters and it was quite obvious that not choosing from the very limited main menu was not appreciated.
The platter was good food but not good value.
Will drive straight by next time.

Lovely venue that we have been to over the last 12 years
Use to be excellent food and good value for money but has become too expensive to the extent that when you order a three course meal an aperitif, a glass of wine and some sparkling water you leave hungry and $217 less in your pocket.
A case of less is not best.

Have been coming here for many years, love the venue and have been very happy with the previous owners and quality of food, service and value for money. So disappointed tonight and very glad we didn't have a booking with our usual gang. To offer a choice of 2 entrees and just 2 main courses in a full on restaurant is rediculous. When given the A5 sheet of paper I assumed it was the special's list but no it was the full Saturday night menu. Entree was a very small schnapper serve or a pumpkin dish and main was a choice of beef or chicken. We both had the schnapper, was ok but disappointing. I had the chicken and my partner the beef, both very small serves and both tough. Don't let your arrogance ruin the reputation previously built at this unique restaurant. You have inherited an amazing icon in one of the most beautiful area's of South Australia. Promote the amazing food and wines from this incredible area.
