“Nice lunch”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

me and my girlfriend we decided to stop there for lunch. Nice combination of salmon and lovely wine list! I loved every single aspect of the restaurant and that's why they deserve a 5 *

“Good food with good value”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

It was a warm and sunny day, we had lunch after our cruise. The food was great ! All 12 of us enjoyed our food and we had dozens of Bluff Oysters which was in season.

“Hands down, best restaurant in Akaroa.”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Every time I dine here the food is amazing, the view is stunning, the staff are super super friendly and knowledgeable, the building is spotless and the experience is always a special one. I am a huge fan of the Fruits De Mer seafood platter, Oysters and the chocolate fondant - must haves. The menu really showcases the local produce and seafood and the wine list has some gems on it. Always an enjoyable experience. Thank you Stephen and Kathryn and The Trading Rooms - 10/10.

“Second visit even better!!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

This was our second visit to the trading rooms, we ate here a while ago and really enjoyed it so on our latest visit to akaroa we decided to return for dinner and we were not disappointed! My partner had terrine with a yummy Fijoa chutney follow by venison! He loved it! I chose the beef fillet which was cooked perfectly for how I like it! I wanted to lick the plate but restrained myself! The service was friendly and efficient with out being intrusive. Thank you the trading rooms
