Food was overcooked and service was poor - no one came to check whether our food was ok even though we didn't touch it for 10 minutes. We left only paying for our drinks. This is a real shame - we have been here a few years ago and it was the best restaurant in Akaroa.

Nice surroundings but the food and wine is way overpriced ! There are a lot better options available in this beautiful little French town . I can't recommend this eatery

We visited this for Lunch (pizza) which was lovely.Unfortunately the lady who served us could do with some lessons in customer she was also very rude to a poor man asking for a takeaway container already in the resturant. We were able to overlook the this as the pizza was very nice. But after calling to try and book a... More

Went to Vagionis on Saturday night with my husband. On entry there was about ten people in the restaurant. We were seated in the covered courtyard. Offered menus, my husband got the ribeye steak with seasonal vegetables which were potatoes and carrots. Ribeye steak was cooked fine, vegetables were lukewarm would have been better if the plates were warmed. I... More

Went last night with a group of friends on a grabone deal and we wouldn't recommend it. The service was extremely unprofessional and we were made to feel both unwelcome and uncomfortable. We were not even allowed to sit together even though the tables were not reserved and the place was hardly busy. In addition it was so cold as... More

Food was tasty especially the sea food Paella & Baked Salmon. The Paella was nicely presented & had a good portion of seafood. Salmon was another good choice which was served with generous salad. Staff was friendly & helpful. We finished our meal with a chocolate Mousse which was light & served with Gelato. Definitely return when summer comes around.... More

Not many healthy options available & my friends shared a paella- $48 for a "double" so glad I didn't order it. Service was ok. I had a nice pizza, but foods was over all uninspired.

What a complete disappointment! We arrived to a very unfriendly waitress which we later found out was the owner. The meals were very average to say the least -I ordered the steak which was very overdone, small and char grilled (burnt) served with beans and sloppy slices of potato! (and from memory this was $45. My husband had the ravioli... More

I think this Italian trattoria style establishment is called after a colonising Italian family. There is a full bar and menu on offer, but my favourite thing to order here is a range of tapas and just share at the table. It's very congenial. The courtyard is charming.
