Great traditional Kiwi service, very good food and coffee.
This captures the old and new Lyttelton spirit of the people and the place.
When in town we always drop in.

Quirky and quaint, the PortHole Bar epitomizes all that's good about the repairing of Christchurch in general, and Lyttelton specifically. Constructed from 3 containers, with linking rooves, clear plastic blinds, innovative decor, imaginative entertainment, tasty food and atmosphere, the PortHole Bar welcomes, entertains, and leaves you feeling great for having visited. The already great service was enhanced when our food wasn't quite heated through, and was returned to us accompanied by a glass of Pinot Gris each. What more could you ask! We will return.

This little bar, had a great guitarist entertaining the night we were there. The atmosphere was friendly and it was a fun place to drop in on. If you take your drinks out the back and up some steps you get a wonderful view of the Port. We just dropped in to enjoy the entertainment and the view.

Wow! We were just nosing around Lyttleton and came across this great spot! What a find - lovely platters, cold beers and a casual but relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Great to see the kiwi ingenuity and creativity still prevails even in little old Lyttleton. Will definitely return....
