We enjoyed having dinner here and the view of the bay. Tried the whitebait fish fritter for the first time and it was delicious.

We only had beer and coffee there but the food looked great. They make their own brew and it
was really good. Except for all the bugs flying around, it was a great experience.

The triple garlic bread entree is to die for!! We then enjoyed the venison which was also amazing and very filling we could not fit in dessert :{ The view from the restaurant across the harbour is simply stunning!!

Nothing is more fun than just happening in to a great restaurant ...like we did in Akaroa. Bully Hayes serves fantastic food while keeping a super cool relaxed atmosphere. Friendly, happy staff and very welcoming to the tourists.... A great choice

We had read reviews about this place on Tripadvisor and were not surprised to find it jam packed with diners. We had to wait for a free table and were glad we did. We sat outside and were happy to do so as it was such a nice day. Both of us opted for Blue Cod and it came with all the trimmings: chips, lemon, salad (with a tasty honey mustard dressing) all served up by a very pleasant Chilean waitress. Great food in terrific picturesque location.
