Great lunch spot by the water (patio)

Nice patio right by the water - good spot for lunch or afternoon drinks after a day on the water. WiFi available as well.

We recently spent the weekend in Akaroa and decided to head out for a meal. Akaroa was very busy and we settled on having tea at L'Hotel. The menu was great and the food delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and dining experience. The staff were very accommodating and efficient. We would highly recommend them and will certainly return there... More

Three of us shared a seafood platter on a perfect summer evening. The platter was advertised for two but the new owner was happy to accommodate us. They were busy but friendly and efficient. Yummy food...fine wine (city prices). And the ocean right there. Quinessential Akaroa. Was tempted to buy a piece of the local art they displayed to mark... More

We ate lunch and dinner here over our 2 day stay in Akaroa. The grouper plate was so good we decided to get it again. The ambiance is so so, but the location and service is good. A bit on the pricey side.

My husband and I stayed in a room above the restaurant, so we went downstairs to dine for the night. The staff were very attentive and pleasant and the food was delicious. The meals were plenty for us (in fact I couldn't get through all of mine) and the pricing for them was reasonable. They had a good selection, covering... More

Mac's is a New Zealand brand beer and must be tried before you say things like VB or XXXX (Australian Beer) is it. You might actually like it and ask for a second glass. BUT drink responsibly - as the advertisement goes. L'Hotel Boutique Htel is a pleasant place were you may actually meet some people who speak French. Akaroa... More
