Overall Rating


The Little Bistro is a very small farm-to-plate style restaurant serving french inspired dishes. Virtually everything is made in-house and most dishes can be adjusted to cater to dietary requirements. The chef is very careful and knowledgeable and even made the gluten free liquorice on the creme brûlée himself! I’ve been here a few times and never had an issue, definitely a highlight of the Akaroa dining scene.
