What more can I say? Just say that to the head chef, roll up your sleeves and be ready for a gorgeous gastronomic experience.
We dined with friends at Vangioni's during a weekend stay in Akaroa. Like all eating establishments in the town it is a small place but it has seating indoors, close by the kitchen and bar, and a covered area outside with garden beyond.

We had a very good meal with good wines too. Shared 2 tapas style entrees. Had 2 style salmon as a main which was delicious as was the rib eye steak. Would strongly recommend.

The friendly staff made it a very pleasurable dining experience! I would recommend Vangionis... More
