Nicolas Baudin’s Restaurant  is a boutique dining experience utilizing the best local and South Australian produce. We serve various styles of local cuisines and our alacarte menu starts at 6pm.  The aim is to provide a selection of dining experiences for house guests and locals. The restaurant is open breakfast and dinner daily.  While we don’t open for lunch we offer, bbq packs to take on your day out or cook in the bbq area at the retreat, and a picnic pack to take with you on your day of touring the island.

At KI Wilderness Retreat it is important to support the local community, which is why we stock a fantastic range of Kangaroo Island wines, beers & spirits.  The wines, sold by the glass gives our guests the opportunity to sample a number of local wines to compliment their meal.


Breakfast is served from 7.30-9.30am all year round, open to our guests and also to the public.

Our Chef’s have created a delicious all-you-can-eat Continental Buffet, with a wide selection of items sourced from Kangaroo Island and South Australia. Cooked breakfast is also available on request.
