We really struggled for food in Akaroa. We came across this place just prior to the kitchen closing (2pm) and it was quiet. We ordered two portions of fish and chips plus a drink each and it was perfect. The fish was fresh, the mushy peas were delicious (I think they were more crushed than mushy which is fine by me) and the portion side large. The service was pleasant and spot on with interactions. We had a thoroughly good experience and would definitely recommend (more reasonable than next door as well).

The menu at the door promised great things but overall we were a little disappointed by the food. The seafood chowder was quite bland and the salmon tasting plate light on salmon and heavy on salad. The restaurant was also cold - we only spotted a couple of heaters one of which was in an uninhabited section. On the positive side the kids fish and chips meal looked very good value with sparkling fresh fish, good chips and delicious mushy peas (even the 7 year old liked them.)

We stopped here for lunch and shared the seafood platter, which had all kinds of fresh seafood, which had been brought from the local man on the wharf, and lots of shellfish,prawns, bread and dips. It was really well cooked and tasted great. Nice wine selection to enjoy as well.
