Positioned in a fabulous location overlooking Akaroa harbour, this place has the potential to easily achieve 5 stars and be the top restaurant in Akaroa if they could get their service on point as the food is outstanding. We were there on a holiday weekend...More

A real jewel in "tired" Akaroa. Service was very French and professional. Food was better than expected and a decent portion. Recommend the Steak. Wine selection is excellent and designed to complement the menu.

Very quiet night. I was the only guest for a while. Blue cod was excellent, and the fries were crisp. Service mostly good, but a bit off-hand at the start. Was waved in the general direction of my table.

We chose to come here for the location and were not disappointed. The setting is great, the food is fine but the service is a bit lacking and the wine list over priced.

We popped in for an afternoon drink and found the place does a happy hour on house white/red & steinlager between 4 & 6pm. Bonus. The under-cover outdoor seating allows great lake views, though the day we visited, the area needed a bit of a...More

Seafood chowder was too floury and tasteless. I had the burger without the bun, asked for extra salad but this was skimpy. Disappointing meals for the price.

I was initially not impressed with the service, it was unorganised and vague, but then it improved immensely. What was a complete surprise was the outstanding food. It was five star, the mushroom risotto was first rate. And another member of our group said the...More
