WINE

THE REDS


Hog Bay River – Dudley wines

Cabernet Sauvignon

A big bold wine, deep in colour and flavour, the nose has hints of mint and eucalypt. The palate is full bodied with a delightful earthiness, mixed berry fruit and perfumed undertones. A wine with great potential to age if you can resist the desire to drink it now!


Sheaering red – Dudley Wines

Shiraz

This approachable blend of Shiraz Cabernet Merlot presents aromas of stewed plums and spicy fruitcake on the nose. It has a well-structured palate with fine long tannins and hints of rum and raisin chocolate, finishing with generosity and softness.

The Red – Islander estate

Shiraz

The Red 2017 is made from 100% elegant cool-climate Shiraz. One the nose there’s notes of pepper, eucalyptus, toasted vanilla. On the palatte it’s seriously tasty with flavours in the mulberry and red fruit spectrum, a hint of charry oak and slightly gamey notes working beautifully with the fleshy fruit. It has a generous round mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.


unknown sailor – False cape

Cabernet Merlot

Encrypted with just two words, ‘unknown sailor’, it pays tribute to the brave men and women who dared sail the rough South Aussie seas. Our 2013 ‘Unknown Sailor’ is a Bordeaux blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot.

    5 star ratingEating out in Kingscote We have been to Bella on a few occasions now. Previously buying a lunch with the most awesome combinations of flavours. So healthy and every mouthful a delight. Today we had a quicker lunch of the hamburger and I would have to say the absolute best you can get anywhere Bella is a must for a meal while in Kingscote on Kangaroo island

  • 5 star ratingOne nice pizza All thought only a small eating space, (you need to book early), I was not able to sit in. But still pizza only tables outside. And boy, what a pizza it was. A must try place for a meal on Kangaroo Island.

    Philip

    4 star ratingDelicious food We ate here twice while in Kingscote, trying the chicken and haloumi salad, burger, Beef cheek ragu and meat lovers pizza. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food arrived promptly and was well presented. In particular my chicken and haloumi salad and beef cheek ragu were very good.

  • 5 star ratingExcellent Food We were staying at the Seaside Inn, but their dining room was closed for a tour group so we drove into town. It was a few minutes before 6 and their dining room opened at six so we made a reservation. It was a good thing we did as the facility is small and it filled up shortly after we got there. The food was excellent. the service was a little slow as there was only one waitress, but she was very pleasant and did her best to accommodate everyone. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.

    5 star ratingGreat food and nice service We had dinner at Bella cafe. There was a good variety of comfort food. Just what we needed after a full day’s sightseeing at Kangaroo Island. Food was made with the heart and the staff was nice and professional. Thanks Bella Cafe.

  • 4 star ratingGood pizza Pizza was good; wait time was appropriate/as expected; had take-away.

    Tourists - just remember that food options can be limited or overwhelmed on KI, and places close earlier than many of us are used to. Remember to plan ahead/go early. (I’m embarrassed by the number of reviewers that don’t seem to understand/respect that.)

    SallyGolightly884

    4 star ratingSimple but nice Italian cafe Simple but fresh, fairly testy food. Decent choice of wines. Convenient location and opening lunch hours. Very friendly and efficient service. All of it made Bella the best choice among 3 cafes we managed to visit during our 3 days stay in KI
