“Dinner”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

The owner gave us a table for 4 on the footpath which was very pleasant given the lovely evening and given our restaurant with a booking wasn't open! Lovely meal, very helpful staff, good value.

“Scrumptious!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Brilliant food, great atmosphere. Very small so often had a waiter's 'bum' in our face as they squeezed past the table

“Not bad, but not that amazing either”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

The entrees (the day's special) were good. The mains (two different types of steak) were very average. Nothing special at all. The service is good, nothing to complain. If you go there with no expectations, I guess you could be pleasantly surprised, but if you go with high expectations (that is the best in the region) than it's a different story.

“Highly recommend this little restaurant”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Delightfully, delicious food in this tiny but homely restaurant.
Food fresh with fabulous imagination in the preparation, I did not want my seafood chowder to end, superb. French waitress charming and owner friendlyand full of fun. Akaroa's premier eating place as far as we are concerned. We tried 3 other recommended restaurants in Akaroa and The Little Bistro won hands down. Would definitely return.

“Brilliant meal”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

If you're going to have one nice meal in Akaroa, go here. Small and friendly and bistro with a great wine list. Go hungry, eat it all.
