Good beers, even better wine and beautifully fresh cooked food. The green lipped muscles where a delight in the sauce expertly prepared

Lovely setting ruined by poor customer service. No idea how to treat a croissant. You never microwave it! When we complained, they brought the same one back to us. Unbelievable. We won't be coming back.

My fiance and I visited Akaroa from Christchurch in February 2014. We stopped by The Brasserie for lunch. Both had lovely meals. In fact, after a month, I'm still lusting over the the salad I ate there-- fresh greens, roasted chicken, kumara/sweet potato, and excellent dressing. Coffee was also excellent. Service was good. We'll definitely be back.

Service and food were good, surroundings made it lovely. It was one of the first experiences of eating out in this area, and we were well pleased with the overall evening.

We have been transhipping for 3 months between Australia and New Zealand on various cruise ships. Stopping at Akaroa on several occasions. We've only just discovered 'The Brasserie'...fantastic! Impressed with the service....so keep it up guys. Free Internet, which is great for Cruisers out there.
Set back away from the road, with the most delightful gardens, private little areas where you can tuck yourself's away. It's one place you should put on your "Must To Go" list.
Anyone looking for the perfect place for a wedding....check it out!...The perfect setting!
