Was given a gift voucher for lunch, took our order and then no food for over an hour ...when it did arrive it was lukewarm and not particularly good. Couldn't recommend.
The Packingshed Cafe is not the easiest to find. Turn off the highway to Akaroa before TaiTapu where the sign says "Packingshed Cafe4km " but there is no sign at the Early Valley Road corner to direct you up there.
