Great service to tantalise the taste buds!

A wonderful early evening in the olive tree covered court yard. The wine recommended by the waiter well suited the amazing two dishes that we were served whilst the last of the days sun rays filtered down through the silver leafed branches above us.

All the dishes came out in a timely manner even though the restaurant was full and they only had 3 wait staff on. They did a good job. We had several tapa's and all were good but all came out at a 'tepid' temperature, had they been hot, they would have been a lot yummier. Dessert was very good to... More

This is a very good restaurant with excellent service. The garden was most attractive. My dinner of ravioli and a starter with goat cheese and beet root were excellent. In a town with fine restaurants, this is a very good choice.

A degree of welcome sophistication. Good food and service. A little pricey, but that is true generally of Akaroa

A great menu, the pizza is a stand out. Unusual varieties and all delicious, washed down with Italian house wine. Enjoy the garden, verandah or sit inside, the service is great everywhere.

Our group of 8 booked in on a busy night and after a bit of a longer wait than expected were seated at our table and very attentively looked after by the friendly staff. The meals were enjoyed by all and the restaurant ambiance was great. Sadly, the people we all took to be the managers, didn't share the same... More

Our family dined here to celebrate a 50th b'day. We went straight to mains after getting drinks, ordering 4 goat shoulders, 1 ribeye, 1 tuna steak, 1 seafood risotto, and my dish was vege ravioli. We reeceived complimentary sour dough bread which was lovely. Everyone was very happy with their meals. I'd say my ravioli is one of the top... More

we were looking forward to a good Italian meal but it was disappointing. the portions were quite small, not especially tasy. the garlic bread we asked for was four small slices of not so nice bread. the place was very noisy. the price felt much too steep for what we had eaten.

I'm quite picky for good food, and my favourite restaurant in Christchurch sets the bar so high that I usually leave other restaurants disappointed, drawing the conclusion of not going back again. But if I want to be honest, Vangionis' home made ravioli was one of the best raviolis I have ever had in a restaurant. With the amazing combination... More
