We popped in here during the 4-6 Happy Hour for a glass of SB and booked to return for dinner a couple of hours later...it was perfectly fine but unremarkable (less than a week later, neither of us can remember what we ate!).

We had a quick lunch here. I had the seafood chowder which was good (the fresh bad was exceptional, it's a shame they only give you one small piece!). The chicken quesadilla was also tasty.

Another great suggestion from David at the Akoroa Motel, a packed Friday evening he managed to get a late table and thank goodness for that, superb staff explained the menu with passion, making suggestions when we couldn’t decide and delivered an evening meal to remember.
A shared starter of Garlic Bread with Olive paste, for mains I had a wonderful Confit Duck with accompanying veg and I ordered a caesar side salad to finish it off, Sue had Lamb fillet dusted with cumin & garlic and lamb shank pie, followed by sticky date pudding and caramel sauce x 2 and a cheese plate to share (diet out of the window tonight!) washed down with two bottles of excellent Merlot, and superb coffees, sublime!!

We stopped at Ma Maison for some Mussels and a Caesar Salad on the recommendation of a local, and weren't disappointed.

The mussels were fresh and flavour filled, in a creamy white wine sauce and the Caesar Salad had lashes of bacon and a perfectly poached egg on top.

Add in a nice glass of Marlborough wine and we were set.

Solid service and a reasonable bill made this a lunch that hit the spot.

To be honest, I don't remember what I ate, but it was very nice indeed and the staff were great! The menu is well thought out with good quality wines. The view over the harbour is lovely and on a good day, the doors are flung open for the indoor/outdoor flow. We saw large groups and couples, all having a good time. We rolled out of there and strolled back to our hotel. I would go back.
