This restaurant would be my top choice in Akaroa. The food is faultless and for good reason, it is always popular.

Visiting from Australia. The Little Bistro was recommended to us (by our motel) and it certainly did not disappoint. As the name implies, this is a small restaurant located in the main street of this delightful French village. The food is simply to die for. Pan cooked local fish, risotto, rich chocolate desert - all superbly presented and with explosions of taste in every bite. Reasonably priced, full of character and with excellent service, this little bistro is highly recommended.

Visited on a busy day. They found me a table although I was alone.Food was great with some nice twists. I loved the approach to the wine list.I had three courses so probably stayed a little longer than anticipated and the booking for the table turned up.
I wasnt hasseled to leave and I rather think the other folk got a complimentary drink at the bar.
Visit if you get the chance but pobably best to book as very popular.

What a nice place. Food was excellent. very good wine selection. Intimate atmosphere. The only thing that wasn't so good was the size of the meals - they were just too big, considering the restaurant is based in the most French part of NZ. We had no room for dessert. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing!! :)

Dont be put off by the size of this place. The food is excellent and the wine list was also extensive with some good wines by the glass. The waiters were also great. A definite must while in Akaroa.
