“Delicious food and great staff.”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

We arrived in Akaroa on a huge cruise ship and swarmed the streets of Akaroa along with our fellow passengers and passengers from another equally large cruise ship. We managed to get a table at this restaurant during the lunch rush and cannot say how impressed we were with the way the staff handled the masses. They were efficient and smiling and no matter what, kept their sense of humour. Given the pressure they were under, we certainly admired their ability to carry on undaunted. And best of all, the food was excellent. Well done Trading Rooms!

Reviewed February 9, 2012

fresh flowers always impress me. quite a large dining area but plenty of space between tables. old fashioned decor (intentional) but good music. good food well cooked and presented.
