About Us

Emma Mettrick and Welshman Paul Howells
met working in Galway, Ireland in 2007.
On returning to/being dragged to New Zealand they set up the Little Bistro in Akaroa in 2010.
Post quakes, a longing to return to Emma’s home town Christchurch meant selling up and opening Twenty Seven Steps in August 2015.

They are supported by a fantastic team of passionate and hard working staff.

The true boss Finn came along in 2010. 
Finn continues to believe it would be better if they had a cool job like being firefighters,
however he has the chef towel on the shoulder down when barbecuing.
