Nice restaurant on a cold winters night

The food was good value, slightly expensive but that can be expected in a tourist area. Lovely roaring fire going in the winter. Staff friendly and helpful.

My husband couldn't stop commenting on how great the meal . I would say it is the same quality as the Loan star our regular in Christchurch . It was actually good that you didn't have spear ribs as it meant he had to try something new and he was very impressed with the beef cheek and I must say... More

Came here with a craving for a good chicken burger, was informed by staff that (understandably) they weren't seating anyone currently as they had just had a large rush and they needed time to clean up and for the kitchen to reset etc. they suggested I come back in 20 minutes. Seemed strange that they sent me away instead of... More

Called in for a late lunch. Very good staff delivered a shared seafood platter which we found excellent. Well priced for two and a great selection of seafood beautifully cooked. Accompanied by a very tasty salad. Great outlook. Recommended.

Apricot chicken pizza was our choice. This pizza was excellent and far exceeded our expectations of filling, flavour and size. In addition as it was Thursday night it was on a special at $15. There was plenty for the two of us and with a couple of drinks and coffee, the whole meal came to a very reasonable cost.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at L'Hotel. The service was excellent and the food was also very good. It was a wet day outside but inside we forgot about the weather!

We went on Thursday night which had pizzas for $15 - well worth it as a saving of around $10. The vegetarian pizza was absolutely delicious.
