Rude older women but young staff nice

Unfortunately the food here is too good not to return. The white base pizza with mushrooms truffle oil and pancetta and marscapone one of the best meals I have had in years. The cheese soufflé with red wine poached pear roasted parsnip and nuts amazing together. We had an unreal wait when we... read more

We were so happy to find this store last Saturday (we're new to Christchurch) We had been searching for Gingerbread syrup everywhere and finally found it here. $25 a bottle but we were happy to pay this. We picked up a few other little treats while we were there (Pickled onions, corn fritters, mozzarella & some mango chutney) When we... More

Tucked away down Tuam Street, the establishment has something for everyone. Great foods for foodies. Great coffee for coffee snobs and best of all fantastic service. I love the dog friendly courtyard. Nice.

I am reviewing just the pizza as I only had pizzas at Mediterranean Unfortunately I did not find a great pizza in Christchurch, however the pizza here at Mediterranean food is ok. Similar to some pizzerias in Italy (not the best ones), it is thin and crispy. There is a large choice of pizzas and many combinations are very good.... More

Even though the marguerite pizza with mushrooms was pretty good (kind of cinchy with the cheese) we gave this restaurant 3 stars as the service was barely mediocre. Add to that, the manager rolled her eyes at us when we asked for mushrooms on our pizza and insinuated that our choice was less than chic. Her reaction put us in... More

This is how Tiramisu should be - the sponge soaked up with liquid, real mascapone and dark chocolate/coffee sprinkles... They sure know how to rock the socks off a tiramisu!! Great service and their woodfired pizzas are amazing too! Definitely go back here. Want an outside table next time to really take in the sun with the food! They also... More

We eat outside on a beautiful summers day under the shade. The salads were tasty, the potted and cold smoked salmon so scrummy, the wine melted on your tongue and as for the highlight, what can I say but the best damn Tiramisu I've ever had! I'll be back, soon!

Sunny day and perfect for lunch despite the rebuilding going on. Pizza are simple but true to origins. Range of other dishes from mediterranean, tasty and fresh. Service friendly and helpful. Not cheap but value for money. Good atmosphere. and excellent shop.
