Emma Mettrick and Welshman Paul Howells met while 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 though he does now top and tail beans and picks herbs every Saturday morning…
