My husband and I had dinner 3 times at this restaurant when staying over new year period at Mercure American River and must stay to our surprise although selection was small the food was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful. The local oysters and King George Whiting were first class! Highly recommended!

Great big local oysters, caramelised scallops and Kangaroo Island lamb all came together with local False Cape Pinot Gris and friendly and efficient service. Plenty of variety to chose local produce. Very enjoyable.

On Previous visits to Kangaroo Island we have always experienced an issue in finding good places to eat. The reflections restaurant at Mercure KI Lodge in American River has certainly filled that void. We were greatly surprised by the menu and the food that followed. The dinning room was busy with a large table of French tourists and two large... More

You may not expect much from the dining room of the island's Mercure Hotel. Well hang onto your hat...this is good, very good! We enjoyed beautiful local fresh produce prepared by a clever kitchen, served by attentive floor staff. You can't get fresher oysters (natural or kilpatrick), or the plump seared scallops that preceded our tempura King George Whiting with... More
