We had a nice relaxing lunch at Ma Maison today. Local salmon for me, the flat bread entree was fantastic.

My wife and I and our daughter who lives in Queenstown spent two weeks touring the South Island and had heard so much about the attraction of Akaroa. What a delightful place! Eating here was going to be a special occasion. We strolled around Akaroa and there were lots of choices but we decided to try "Ma Maison" as the... More

Great food in a relaxed but still "grown up" setting, if that makes sense, environment. We still felt welcome with the children 7 & 11 which in lovely quite places like this you sometimes don't (don't get me wrong, my children know how to behave at a nice restaurant but sometimes that doesn't seem to matter to some people).

This meal was superb. It was fine dinning at it's best. The chef is a genius and the food was exquisite. The service was great too. Very pricey but worth every cent. Recommend for a romantic occasion.

Beautiful restaurant, great options for children. The steak was amazing, very tender, but the highlight was definitely the desserts! Friendly waitstaff.

A night away in Akaroa during Winter on a Monday night leaves slim pickings if you want to dine out. Some eateries close for the quiet season, & others understandably choose that night to have off. Lucky for us Ma Maison was open. The waiter was friendly & attentive enough to be comfortable. Our table chose mains & desserts &... More

Tucked in by seascape and wharf this is a delightful spot. Food and service are good too as is the ambience of the restaurant. Well worth a visit when you are next in that delightful spot, Akaroa.

The restaurant has a nice ambience with log fire and lounge seating around it. The service is good. We ate at night so didn't see the view but it is right on the water's edge. The food was lovely - especially the duck pate!

Great quality food, great location and atmosphere, there is also plenty of parking nearby which is a bonus on a busy weakened. This is the second time my wife and I dined at this restaurant, the food is exceptional, probably the best in Akaroa. Our only negative comment would that you tend to wait a relatively long time for your... More
