We came here due to the highest of reviews and because Akaroa is very small and has limited options. This place has a cool feel, very tiny, service was good, but unfortunately the food did not live up to its price tag. If you can afford to drop $35 a plate for dinner without expectations, then you might have a different outlook, but we expected good flavour, and were very disappointed. I had the pork belly and thought it was terrible. The skin was supposed to be crispy, but was so hard it was inedible, and the bottom of the dish had so much oil, maybe its just me, but not enough vegetables. My wife had the salmon which was cooked perfectly, but her potatoes has no flavour... The value is not there for me and we would not return.
