Sea Dragon Lodge - Food & Wine
At Sea Dragon Lodge we believe that food should be an integral part of the overall experience when staying on Kangaroo Island. As many great Aussie chefs have recently discovered, Kangaroo Island produce is becoming well known for its purity and is unique as the people who grow it, farm it and catch it...
At Sea Dragon Lodge we offer a great range of food and wine options as follows:
- Superb home-cooked evening meal hampers
- These come semi prepared and generally only need to be re-heated in the oven or microwave. There is minimal or no cooking required and of course no tedious shopping.
- Continental Breakfast is supplied standard with all accommodation. Full cooked breakfast upgrades are available as an option.
- We have included a range of Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten free options on our menu.
It is important to Pre-Order all MealsWe order all our food supplies to suit specific guests requirements. It is therefore very important that you pre-order your meals at least 2 to 3 weeks prior to arrival to ensure we have your selections available. We email you a menu order form and you simply choose from our menu selections before you arrive. The Lodge does not have a restaurant, all meals need to be pre-ordered. To view our menu, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Most Guests Dine in Their villas for Their Evening MealsIt is not safe to drive after dark due to the large amount of wildlife on Kangaroo Island’s roads and there are no restaurants near Lodge. For these reasons, most of our guests tend to eat in at the Lodge or Villas. The Lodge does not have a restaurant, but provides delicious home-cooked evening meal hampers as a room service. It is important to pre-order hampers at least 2-3 weeks prior to arrival to ensure we have your selections.
