Great food, great service. If you visit Akaroa, you should definitely eat at The Little Bistro. Make sure you book in advance, as it is extremely popular.

Food was fantastic and good value as well considering the quality of it. Service was good but it felt like they were juggling quite a lot and the table was a bit small. Only being picky really. We loved our evening and would come back again!

We did our NYE dinner here and were really happy we did.
The food is phenomenal - creative, tasty, fresh and of good quality.
The place is small, cosy and comfortable.
You MUST have at least one meal here if you're in Akaroa.

Reservations are a must. There are two seatings.

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.
