Food was very mediocre - fat soaked fish, small under seasoned burger with little flavour. Very expensive price and staff member who took my payment rude. I will not go back.

What was on the board as 'catch-of-the day' turned out to be deep fried, over-cooked frozen fillets served on a pile of chips with a helping of shrimps on shredded lettuce on the side. It was so fried it was rock solid, virtually inedible. At $32 per serve a total rip-off - the local fish and chip shop do a lot better for a lot less.

A big thank you to owners Meg and Tom who really went out of their way to ensure our hen's group had an excellent time in their bar. From the moment we set foot in the door of L'Hotel we were impressed with the lovely and very helpful attitude of the owners and their staff. We had an amazing night and would recommend L'Hotel to anyone wanting to experience good old Kiwi hospitality!

Thanks for the fantastic vegetarian and gluten free burger! One of the best lunches I've ever had! My hubby loved his fish lunch.
Service was a little slow and in attentive and it was annoying that someone was refilling the stinky kerosene lamps/heaters as we were eating. Overall -great. Wod definitely go back!

What a dissapointment, me and my partner wanted to get a bite to eat whilst in akaroa today and found this lovely little place where the food looked great, we looked at the menu and decided to stop here for lunch. We asked the waitress is it ok to get some food and she said yes, go take a seat. So we did, 15 mins later we thought perhaps you have to get your own menus and order your self so my partner went to the bar and asked the chap there and he said he'll send someone out straight away he even had our table number. Another 10 minutes later and seeing other people being seen to who arrived after us, tables being cleared and others being checked if they were ok for drinks etc we hadnt even been acknowledge, not even a glance to where we were sitting. We understand if its busy, you have to wait,but it wasnt, we were just completely ignored couldnt get anyones attention unless we stood up and waved our arms like a fool so with that we left, again with no acknowlegdement from anyone almost like we were invisible. Perhaps they weren't fans of the british!
