Average service! Should try harder with their customer service skills. No real issues just not the most pleasant of staff. It was as if they did not want to be there! & not enjoying their job!

My husband had the catch of the day and said it was his best fish so far! It had a larger piece of fish, done perfectly. I only had a pizza, but it was better than my favorite pizza back at home. Waitress was very cute and lively....and did a good job. Some of the reviews are bad and I... More

Food took over an hour to be served with an expensive price tag. This was okay until the Caesar salad was very dry with minimal meat. The steak sandwich looked nice but was cold. We were very disappointed and were allowed the meal free of charge. A Highly disappointing lunch.

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent view of harbor, and excellent seating outside. When the temperature/weather is just right, with no bugs, I really enjoy eating outdoors. This was such a place. Thank you.

Being early spring, the restaurants in Akaroa close early. However, we dined at L'Hotel two evenings as it was the only restaurant open. We had pizza the second night and it was extra special. Both meals were very good, with happy and attentive service. Full bar.

It was a lovely place to sit in the sun overlooking the water. Some mussells in garlic wine sauce and a NZ SB..perfect. Food slightly overpriced. ..so far New Zealand seems more expensive than Perth. But worth the extra for the view.

After taking a day trip to Akaroa we decided to stop and have a drink at the hotel and something to eat. Apart from 2 other people we were the only ones there. We ordered our meal and sat outside to enjoy the view. After 35 minutes my husband went and asked where our food was. The lady looked at... More
