Celebrated as Australia's culinary capital, the rich soils and pure rains of South Australia inspire artisan growers to produce a bounty of premium, fresh and often organic food and wines. The daily changing menu honors these fine local ingredients with a cuisine style at once sophisticated and simple to promote the intense purity of flavors and to create a very special dining experience, unique to the Island and to Southern Ocean Lodge.
