Evening was clear, cold & windy. This made the warmth of the venue even more appealing.
Food quality and service were very good. The menu was both expansive and inviting.

We had one day in Akaroa and it was dreadful weatherwise. Many shops and restaurants were not even open, but Bully Hayes was there for lunch, afternoon coffee and dinner. At lunchtime our service was reasonable and the food quite satisfactory; at coffeetime it was very impersonal, and at dinnertime we had a lovely friendly waitress who made the experience more enjoyable. There was a very wide selection on the menus and what we chose was tasty and good. The atmosphere was warm and views out to the water were an added bonus.

My partner and I have tried seafood chowder all over New Zealand, in Australia and San Francisco. Bully's is THE best. Hands down. We're coming back to work our way through the menu.

Stopped in here on a quiet night in Akaroa, food was delish and prompt, Rosemary Brulee was delightful. Staff were friendly and efficient, reasonable prices too. And a bigscreen for the football!
