We were booked for 8pm but didn't get seated until well after this time due to lack of room and previous diners hadn't left. Sent away to look for somewhere to have a drink.

We enjoyed our dinner so much the first time, we made another reservation for a few days later. On this second occasion we found the table we reserved had already been given away; the woman (who I believe is the owner) didn't specifically care about resolving the situation, though another table was found for us. The main course was nearly... More

On a cold winters night Vangionis is a cozy place to eat with a great atmosphere. The staff were friendly and the portions were generous. We got there early so were lucky enough to get a table for 2 immediately but I would recommend booking ahead as it was a popular place.

I booked a week before as the friends we were with had always wanted to eat here. We turned up 5 minutes early to find that our table wasn't ready. To help them out we went to a local pub for 20 minutes. When we came back our table was still being used and the place was filled with other... More

Public Holiday in Akaroa on a freezing evening could have spelt disaster for an eating experience but Vangionis proved us wrong! The welcoming lights of this cheerful little restaurant beckoned us in and as luck would have it a table was free. Menu was extensive and all our choices were superb. The wine list was excellent and the service friendly... More

We visit here twice. The first time we were served by the lovely French lady from Brittany. She is an absolute gem. The food was wonderful and the whole evening was so pleasant. It was so good we went back on Saturday. The owners were in charge this time and they are not nearly as much fun. The food was... More

After eating here at New Year and going back again two nights later because it was so good our experience last night was totally disappointing. We waited too long to be seated and too long to be served, this being due to what I presume were the owners doing other things while the sole delightful French waitress was run off... More

Restaurant owner and chef wouldn't know hospitality if it was a rotten fish dropped in their lap. Go elsewhere don't waste your time or money attending this place. Miserable petulant chef. Miserable, unreliable owner. Enjoy the sunset on the wharf with fish & chips.
