Decent seafood restaurant with great selection. The seafood chowder was one of the best we had all over New Zealand! The presentation of the food and taste was great. The prices were slightly steep for a lunch spot, but comparable to the restaurants nearby.

This resturant was in a very good location over looking the harbour. The night we went they were very busy but our meals came out in a timely fashion. The food was tasty and worth the money we paid and the staff were friendly. If you are going for dinner I would suggest that you reserve a table. I would not hesitate in recommending this restaurant.

Not great, not bad. Only had snacks and drinks here but would not choose to go out here for an evening meal. Not a great wine list, looks like a good menu selection, but if our drinks and snacks were anything to go by its going to be preety standard cafe/pub stuff, nothing special.

After walking the town and checking menu selection and price at all the restaurants, we settled on Bully Hayes and were not dissappointed. Very good atitude of staff, prompt service and the meal was well presented. While enjoying the meal, we also enjoyed looking out over the Akaroa Harbour - beautiful!

Akaroa was exetremely busy, due to large cruise liner in the bay and we were lucky enough to find a table at this little cafe. We ordered a chicken burger and blue cod ( a little pricy); our waiter was efficient and pleasant; food was hot and tasted ok, I was pleasantly surprised that it came out in a timely manner, as I was half expecting a delay because of how busy they were, but the staff dealt with the service well.
