We had a lovely time dining at Reflections. The food was delicious, the menu had several gluten-free options for me, fresh seafood selections for hubby, and several vegetarian options for my son! Tall order! The servers did a good job, although they did seem over-stretched and harried. It was a super full evening, and not many places seem to be... More

Went back twice, as the first time was mouth watering. Lamb cooked to perfection and the local oysters were an excellent entre. Great service and a well rounded menu. Very hard to pick a meal as all looked amazing. We ate the lemoncello oysters; the lamb and fish.

We did not get off to a good start, when I requested the wifi password, which was refused as reserved for guests, unless we paid $5pp. Hello, $184 for three doesn't qualify as guests? We are in 2017 not 1990. This restaurant is not geared up for pregnant females. My daughter's questions regarding the use of raw egg were met... More

We were staying in American River for a week and trying to sample as many of the island's eateries as we could fit in! This one was an obvious choice and we decided to blow out with a three course meal. We weren't staying at hotel so booked a table which was just as well as it was busy. Small... More

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.

We stayed three nights at the Mercure and given very little choice in American River dined in the in-house restaurant each night and simply loved the food. Not the cheapest but the food was wonderful. We were fortunate to get discounts because of our Accor membership so we were able to enjoy a couple of round of the local KI... More

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
