“superb customer orientation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Chosen via tripadvisor, we confirm the food is very good, the price fair, the atmosphere relaxing. Special mention for the staff and their appreciated customer orientation: smiling and very nice with us, they also offered us to seat at a better table during the dinner.

“Highly recommend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

First time diners, not disappointed. Earlier reviews pretty much sum it up - terrific food, good service, meals came out quickly, good parking. Loved the idea of mini desserts - however could not even manage that after my Roast Lamb Souvlaki platter. Will certainly go back.

“Nice food -love the mini desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This was our first visit. The food was good for all three of us. We love the mini desserts as we were full after the mains but wanted to try the desserts. Wait staff was attentive and service good.
Would go again.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This was my first time going to costas and I was not disappointed! The restaurant itself is amazing looking with heaps of blue lights. I ordered the chicken souvlaki and it was the best I've ever tasted! The meal was massive!! The dipping sauces and the juicy chicken really made the meal, I couldn't even finish and I
Never can not finish a meal. The only down fall I thought was we ordered the 'mini meatballs' as a started and for around $12 you got 4 meatballs they were so tasty but for that price left us wanting more!
Would recommend booking at this place before visiting as it was packed when we went.
Would 100% go back and would recommend to others!
