This was our second visit to Sunset. The food, wine and service are excellent and it is fully deserving of the accolades it receives.

Ivy our waitress was gorgeous and we really enjoyed chatting with her between courses.

Food was lovely and was a beautiful day to sit and enjoy the view outdoors on the deck

Order the generous feed me option, a bottle of wine and sit back and enjoy the terrific view. The food was fantastic from start to finish!

Excellent menu and food was magnificent. Well worth going. Some smaller tables would add to the ambience.

Amazing location and incredible views. I have not eaten there for about three years and it was not as good as it used to be. The fish did not hit the mark that it once was and also for the price.

Fabulous food. Meticulous attention to detail. The best food on KI by a long shot. We’ve dined there for lunch and dinner and both experiences were exceptional. If you’re on the island make sure you add Sunset into your itinerary once or twice. You won’t be disappointed .

Amazing food in an amazing location. The name really suits the location. We opted for the $80 feed me menu and the variety was excellent. This is a must-do for any foodie travelling KI.

Restaurant provided great options without gluten and red meat. Especially the stingray was exceptional. The wine package well complimented the different dishes and service was great. We were happy to hear little facts about the wines. Truly made our holiday in KI.

The staff were very happy and welcoming. The food was divine. There were little children there which could have been a distraction but it didn't spoil the view, the food or the service

The food was good, but service was poor. We paid a 50% deposit before our booking but this was not discounted from the total until I enquired.
The usual fee for the degustation is $95/head but we paid $110/head + public holiday surcharge. The day we dined was not even a public holiday. This surcharge was not removed when questioned.

Dear AMFood,, I'm very sorry to hear about your experience with the service. The day you dine was NYE dinner, which was a public holiday in SA. Our degustation menu is $95/pp but the NYE menu includes a glass of Moet/Mumm champagne on arrival, hence it was $110. We informed all our guest who booked with us over the phone before hand to make sure everyone is aware there is a surcharge. Again, my apologies for the surcharge misunderstanding and I hope to see you again. Vanessa Cu
