Great food for all meals. We loved pur lunch so much we went back for an outstanding breakfast before our dolphin cruise. Very friendly staff, great food and great setting right on the waterfront in Akaroa.

It was a bit of a rushed lunch for us because we were on a tight schedule, but the staff welcomed us in, even meeting us at the door. They were very accommodating, the food was great and brought out very quickly.

We recently had lunch at Bully Hayes Restaurant & Bar. The service was great, friendly staff and great views. As it was a bit chilly, we dined inside, but on a better day it would be nice dining outside. I had the sticky date pudding and it was awesome.

Thought the food was OK but not great for the money. We sat outside in the garden at the rear of the property and both ordered Fish and Chips. It was ok but the batter very thick and soggy, not quite cooked on the inside so if you took the fish out it probably weighed about 2oz 60gms The chips were nothing special and we did consider that we should've ordered something else especially considering the price.
