Best meal we have eat in New Zealand

We will finish tomorrow our 8 weeks trip to New Zealand. This is the best meal we eat here. Fresh, innovative, tasty, and very different from the standard NZ restaurants. Don't miss!! They are open only in the evenings and not every day so it is recommended to call in advance.

Small friendly restaurant with small outside garden area for dining as well as inside. Authentic Italienne food cooked to order. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal

We made a dinner reservation, arrived on time only to be seated by the open front door. The pizzas had very little toppings on and flavours weren't well balanced. The fish main was cold on the inside (not ideal for our pregnant friend). Many of the beers on the menu weren't available. Prices were overrated for the food served. Service... More

We had a tasty meal and a very enjoyable evening here on our last night in New Zealand. Service was warm, friendly and efficient and not at all intrusive. This was yet another restaurant willing to adapt dishes to suit our particular preferences.

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. Gave us a great warming experience of lovely cuisine nestled only meters from the street and... More

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
