Chose this restaurant for dinner due to its lovely setting on the waterfront. Beautiful to watch the sun go down while eating dinner in the sheltered outside section. We started with the baguette as an entree, which was nice but quite pricy for what it was. I had the beef burger, which was good but not fantastic. My partner had the butter chicken, which he absolutely loved, describing it as probably the best butter chicken he's ever had. On the whole we enjoyed this restaurant, but we found the price to be pretty steep.

Wonderful entree choices. Then, Aged Beef, perfectly cooked, melting in my mouth! Creamy smoked garlic! Mmmmmm! The food was so good. Great wine list at reasonable prices too. Very happy!

We were lucky enough to be invited to the wedding of the year at this venue
SO
Let’s start with the location it couldn’t be better , the day was perfect as was the bride
The food was excellent, the staff are attentive but not in your face , I’m sure as the restaurant it’s as good
Will definitely come back
They have a commanding view and the sunset was just stunning

Although it is our second trip to Akaroa we decided to rely on local knowledge and we were not disappointed. From being greeted by very International Staff (our waiter was from Uruguay and the young lady from Poland) we were received warmly. My starter was scallops that melted in my mouth and my partner had vegetable samosas that he found excellent. Mains were lamb and blue cod that again well prepared and plated. All were washed down with refreshing craft IPA beer. Based on our experience, we would both highly recommend this restaurant. Thanks to Kerry for this brilliant recommendation.
