“Beautiful Fresh Fish!!”
Review of Murphy's Seafood

Murphy's Seafood
Ranked #10 of 30 Restaurants in Akaroa
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$7 - US$11
Cuisines: Seafood
Description: Local, self caught, daily, fresh fish optional to buy fresh or have served up as a hot lunch! Our range of fish changes daily based on what is caught that morning, we then fillet it ourselves. Our lunch range consists of the classic fish and chips with a twist - we only grill our fish! Or you can have your fish served in a toasted bun with sour cream, grilled fish of your choice and lemon juice.

“Beautiful Fresh Fish!!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We strolled down to explore and found this guy down on the wharf with a hot plate doing a real trade! - Clearly a local favourite - always a good sign.

Beautiful fresh fish (a great selection) cooked on the hot plate and served with chips and fresh lemon juice - no batter and just beautiful!! Well done Murph - keep up the good work!!.
Definitely recommend either to eat in the Akaroa sunshine or take back to accommodation.

“Great fresh fish”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Fish fresh from the ocean cooked on a grill while you wait. A bargain price and excellent quality. It is run by Murph and his wife who do all the preparation and cooking. Portions are huge, so consider sharing.

“Great salmon”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We ate a delicious Salmon Panini after our boat trip with Akoroa Sailing Cruises. Murphy's Seafood came highly recommended and we now know why. It was great.

“So Fresh!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Popped in to get some fresh fish right on closing time - they were wonderfully accommodating and helpful. We Just got fish to take home and cook, very impressed by the selection, freshness and service. Will eat there next time...

“Fresh fish from a cart on the wharf”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Walk onto the wharf, up to the cart, and they will BBQ the fish they got off the boats that very day, in front of your own eyes. Absolutely delicious.
