We both had the seafood chowder and it was pretty good. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, too bad it was cold and windy or we would have sat on the patio overlooking the bay.

The place looks nice, the staff are nice, service was quick I had a quick lunch here, the place sits nicely on the waterfront. The coffee and poached eggs on toast were good. Would visit again.

Lovely setting by the beach. Decent service. Happy hour on drinks. Good quality burger but mustard not advertised on menu. One piece of fish delicious but the other less so. Chunky Chips and fries turned out to be the same thing and were very average.

We had a great meal. Tasty cocktails and I felt the portion sizes were just right. Sat outside, and enjoyed the sunset, noticed that they had blankets available if you got cold.

Overlooking Dailey's wharf and the Akaroa Harbour, Ma maison is one of Akaroa's hidden gems. The view speaks for itself! Set away from the hustle and bustle, our Restaurant offers a very private dining experience, one to be enjoyed and savoured.
