I have been to Orleans a couple of times now. The dessert is always incredible. The chocolate pie with the orange peel is a delight and even the pecan pie was a really nice surprise. The mains menu didn’t have a huge selection on it...More

I hit the Orleans every time i am in Christchurch for a meal and a pint or two. The chicken and waffles is exceptionally good and the deep fried burger is also very good. Setting is very cool with live music every now and then.
