We have the chowder every time we go to Akaroa. It has a wide and unusual variety of fish, shellfish, and cephalopods in it, and is served with a chunk of toasted garlic bread. Yum!

What can I say! We had the most appalling service we have ever encountered anywhere.
The waitress took everyone's orders and then went to walk away, I asked if I could please order too...what do yah want she asked! I ordered the horse club sandwich(basically a chicken club) with no bacon as I cannot eat pork, the sandwich duly arrived with bacon, when I pointed this out to the waitress she told me to 'just eat it'! I handed it back to return to the kitchen. Seconds later she was back and threw the sandwich down in front of me, I asked for a fresh one with no traces of bacon. It was taken away but returned to me 10 minutes later with the others meals, it was the same sandwich stale and cold.
Whilst we were there the staff stood folding towels in the restaurant, the towels were all full of holes and looked dirty...not a good look!
The others at the tables meals were ok but nothing fantastic.
Overall, dreadful service, dreadful food. We often go to Akaroa for the day but will never visit this establishment again

Really enjoyed this restaurant - the only negative would be the number of sparrows and sea gulls hovering around but that is not the fault of the restaurant in any way.

We stopped in for lunch on our drive out to Akaroa from Christchurch. My husband and I shared garlic bread and the battered blue cod with chips & salad. Everything we had was very nice, and the fish was beautifully fresh. The service was good and the brightness & position of the restaurant very pleasant. It was a very windy that day, so it was nice to be in the shelter but not feel closed in.
