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

I regularly dine at the Mediterranean Food Cafe for lunch. They put on an excellent, authentic Mediterranean lunch. I particularly recommend their pizzas - none of this nonesense putting on every flavour imaginable. I try a different one each time and am never disappointed with the variety offered. It is a great affordable option if you are after a delicious... More

Dropping off a broken espresso machine around midday on Tuam Street ...Medi Food seemed our best option. The building is scarred by quake damage. Propped up. Our second visit as diners. Greeted and seated in the outdoor area by a lovely lady. Simple double sided paper menu...Antipasto, Pasta, Salad and Pizza on the 'flip' side. We decide on Breads with... More

Since the departure of Nick Mavromatis, this foodie's delight has gone backwards. Gone are the helpful, knowledgeable deli staff and the 3 varities of my favourite Greek olive oil. The haughty, unfriendly maitre de guards the cafe like a scorpion! Many of the things that have always made this cafe so pleasurable for lunch have gone.... no wine list (scribbled... More

I have been here several times and each time including last week was enjoyable for the tasty Italian food and atmosphere. We enjoyed a delicious tasting plate and pizza. We enjoy a bit of grocery shopping before and after lunch and will definitely be returning. Good coffee too. Don't be put off by the earthquake battered outside as it's all... More
