“Adorable”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Delicious food and very good advice for wine to accompany various dishes. Best dishes we had were the steak for main and scallop starter - all round great though, we went twice!

“4.5 out of 5!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

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!

“Everything you read and hear about it is true”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

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.
