“Great pub dinner”
Review of The Madeira Hotel

The Madeira Hotel
Ranked #7 of 7 Quick Bites in Akaroa
Price range: $16 - $32
Cuisines: International
Description: Warm, atmospheric traditional Kiwi pub. Come on in and watch sports, listen to good, music at the weekends, and enjoy our variety of Gastropub food. The upstairs hostel is great for meeting new people, enjoying the beauty of Akaroa for a few days, and to enjoy a night out without having to even exit the building!

We came here with friends on our first night in Akaroa. The food was simple but well done which is just what you hope for in New Zealand. Flavours were awesome and the price was reasonable. Winston the owner was friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend if you want a good pub meal.

Came from Canada not sure what to expect but the Madeira surpassed my wildest dreams in food and atmosphere...such a homey atmosphere with fantastic waiters and bar tenders!! Very friendly and helpful in every way! The food is excellent!! The chef should get an award for what comes out of that kitchen.. The nachos are the best I've had ever! The lamb is even better!! Changed my mind on lamb for sure!! Could eat there everyday and still want more! Can't go wrong stopping there!

If you visit Akaroa, don't miss this Jem of a place. We returned to visit Akaroa because we loved it so much the first time and the Madeira was one of our first stops.

We treated ourselves to dessert and when it came out we were blown away by the detail and love that was put into creating it. The chefs Charmaine and Vernon are incredibly talented at what they do.

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. We can't wait for the day we can come back.

This is a great little pub. Its undergoing some refurbishments but don't let that put you off as there are still plenty of charming places to sit and eat. We had a table inside nearest the street. It was like a private dining room so was very cosy. The food (I had Beef Nachos....not very French Haha) and my partner had the salmon and both were superb! The bar man let us sample the various beers before ordering so that we found something we liked (not being familiar with local beer). All in all.....excellent!
