Murphy’s was recommended by the guy at the reception where we stayed in Akaroa and he was 100% on the money. We had lemon fish and salmon - the salmon was incredible - cooked perfectly as was the lemon fish. The batter was really light...More

Can recommend this place 100%. While the restaurant itself is not very pretty the fish and chips are so delicious and the portions are massive. Fish and chips cost $9 ($7 without the chips) and the portion was actually big enough for two!

Family based business providing daily fresh fish for our yummy fish and chips, seafood, burgers, milkshakes and delicious coffee. Our new business is an addition to Murphy's Seafoods that is based on the Main Wharf of Akaroa, but with a wee twist. We are a takeaway restaurant but we are perfect & try to cater for everyone whether it may just be yourself to large families.
