The Vivonne Bay Bistro

Kangaroo Island is the perfect place for animal lovers and those keen to explore some of the mesmerising outdoor scenes of Australia. This picturesque island is filled to the brim with pretty scenes of pristine beaches, sparkling shallows, and lush rainforests, all of which are home to an amazing array of native creatures.

Throughout the island, there are a number of quaint villages and towns that hark back to yesteryear, many of which still sport the trades they built themselves on. Vivonne Bay is one of the most popular areas on the island, and can be found to the south overlooking the Southern Ocean.

Here, white sands meet the lazily lapping sea in a show of paradisiacal beauty, and there are plenty of things for visitors to do, whether you want to discover the unique animal life, grab a bite to eat in one of the local restaurants, or dip in and out of craft stores that line the main street.

If you’re feeling hungry, we recommend visiting the Vivonne Bay Bistro, a stalwart in the restaurant world in this part of Australia. If you’re looking for a hearty meal, the filling menu and traditional dishes here will fuel you for any adventure, whether that’s exploring the underwater scenery that surrounds the bay or digging into the fascinating history of the town and its residents.

At the Bistro itself, you can tuck into a two or three course lunch and try some local homemade treats to boot. As well as a mouthwatering selection of meats and local cheeses, vegetables, and sauces, there is a dessert menu bursting with indulgent treats for your sweet tooth.

The staff are accommodating, too, with a range of options for vegetarians and those with food intolerances.

Once you’ve wolfed down a delicious lunch or dinner, you can continue exploring the offerings in Vivonne Bay and the rest of the island; maybe you’ve take a stroll along the Hanson Bay Koala Walk and spot koalas, or simply relax on the beach by the sea and soak up the warm island air.

Kangaroo Island is a must-visit for anyone in this part of Australia. Not only is a packed full of incredible animal encounters, but also plays host to some great restaurants to refuel in. If you find yourself in Vivonne Bay with an empty stomach, a meal at the Vivonne Bay Bistro will sort you right out.
