We booked our accommodation at L'Hotel Boutique Hotel in Akaroa via the local tourist office. Our room was large, spotlessly clean, and had a large balcony overlooking the bay. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly - we could not have asked for more. I can recommend the restaurant and bar which has a very good a la carte menu... More

Visited Akaroa today and whilst wandering around decided a spot of lunch at this place would be good. What a bad decision. Walked in and the wait person (woman with blonde hair) told us we could take s seat anywhere. We sat down and waited, and waited and after 10 minutes (being generous as it would have been longer) with... More

We were only offered a menu that showed burgers and pizzas. We chose a fish burger and the works burger with a kids menu choice of chicken and chips. The meals were nice for what they were but over priced ($28 for burgers and $12 for the kids menu). The service was average and we probably wouldn't go back.

We both ordered Pork Belly and enjoyed a beautiful mulled wine as part of the meal deal. The service was excellent, attentive and friendly. The fire was super and much appreciated on a cold night. The belly of pork was superb. Beautifully presented, tender and delicious. We will highly recommend this as an eatery in Akaroa for our guests. The... More

We were seated at a table in the corner, under a TV screen, so not great. But the TV was turned off at our request and it wasn't so bad. The salt and pepper calamari entree was the best I've had in years, and the steak meal adequate. Good service and a pleasant evening in paradise

Very obliging wait staff. A busy night and our order was served pleasantly and promptly. I ordered the Groper with Prawns - excellent and my husband chose the Pasta. Both very good and generous servings. Thank you guys, keep up the good work!!

L'Hotel is a waterfront restaurant with plenty outdoor seating. We only had lunch there as we were on a day trip to Akaroa. We had salt and pepper squid which was an enormous plateful of the most tender squid I have ever tasted, and a friend had the "dozen mussels" which totalled about 20 of the shellfish. Definitely value for... More

We ate lunch and dinner here over our weekend stay and enjoyed the food. Have eaten here on a previous visit too. We were having a wine and beer one afternoon when the staff bought out a large platter to snacks free for patrons to eat! Amazing, my Irish in-laws couldn't believe, they've never seen the like. I must admit... More

Arrived at L'Hotel for dinner without booking at 7pm the restaurant was3/4 empty. The staff after ignoring us for 10 minutes suggested we come back at 7.45. We went for a walk and returned at 7.45 to find the restaurant almost full, but we got seated right away. We ordered drinks and waited 25mins for the drinks to arrive. We... More
