Waeckerle’s Restaurant

Waeckerle’s a la carte restaurant offers relaxed country-style hospitality and our menu features delicious seasonal seafood and produce such as bluff oysters and whitebait.

The restaurant has lovely garden views and in summer you may prefer to dine on the balcony or enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the garden. We have an extensive wine list and the largest range of Craft Beers in Akaroa.

Open from 6pm Friday to Sunday during winter, we are also open by arrangement for weddings, private functions, conferences and events. We can design a menu to suit the occasion and can cater for up to 80 people.  Click here to see our restaurant menu and wine list.
