A quiet early evening dinner on a beautiful spring day. Sitting outside with beautiful view of water and boats just across the street. Relaxed warm owner serving us. My peanut noodles were 5/5. My friends prawns and pork curry were also great

I was not sure which meat to have with my curry. The young woman behind the counter recommended fish. She was right it was perfect. Lovely to have some good advice when not sure. The food was top class.

We ate here about 10 days ago. It's the first time we have been in the restaurant but, we will definitely go again. Its not the plushest of places but for a good feed at a reasonable price. It wins hands down. Lovely people too....More

Food options are limited in Akaroa. Especially for travelers on a budget. We are not travelers but a family of four who visited Akaroa for the day. For families and travelers, it would be nice if Akaroa has some more food options that are healthy...More
