“Great food, service, views...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2008

Bully Hayes offers a cafe-type ambiance, with outside dining when weather permits, and glassed-in indoor dining anytime. Nice views of Akaroa Harbor (Harbour). The fish chowder is not to be missed. Delicious breads, enticing menu. Several good brews on tap, friendly service. Have eaten there several times on repeat visits to Akaroa and have never been disappointed.
