Pleasant environment and wonderful store offering an abundance of meditarrean food. The lamb tagine was tasty and the pasta and pizza was enjoyed by the friends and family dining with me. Lovely cafe.

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.

You get the best of both worlds here, a very well stocked delicatessen and after you have picked and shopped your good value genuine European items, there is a very cool small cafe. It serves great tasting authentic pizza and a good variety of excellently presented lunch plates with gorgeous tasty food. Excellent coffee too or tea! Sadly this place... More

Went for lunch here with my boyfriend on a sunny Saturday and absolutely loved the food. Had a bruschetta to share and for our main we had a garlic & chili pizza and mushroom & lemon pasta. I can honestly say this is the best food we’ve had in Christchurch over the last 2.5 years. Service was ok. One very... More

Lovely meal here, food was amazing, fresh and authentic. Would be awesome though if they had a new location. But all in all we had a great meal here. My husband and I had a pizza which was to die for and a salad. Made a perfect light lunch. Will definitely be coming back again!

Have had great food there before, but last week was served a miniscule Spanikopita tartlet with small salad. This tasted only ok, and was far too small for a lunch option. I often choose this when I dine out, as I love it, but I have never had such a tiny one before. Moreover, the spinach was stringy as it... More
