This restaurant was near our hotel and serves until 10pm. Enjoyed the decor and atmosphere - they have a front that opens in the hot weather. Food was served quickly and was of a good quality. I had a panini with blue cheese in it - tasty. Staff very friendly and attentive.

We visited for a quick bite to eat in the evening and a couple of beers, have to say both people who served us were really friendly and gave great service (even the newbie who got stuck on the tills). We have a couple of the snacks and sharers which went down a treat, so did the beer!

I happened to be in Christchurch for work reasons and needed to do some work on my laptop and eat something as I was starving, I didn't fancy the pubs in the town so came here instead. Most tables were occupied which is a good sign but a friendly member of staff later found out his name was Micky got me a table out of the way and checked I was ok through the evening. I was happy sat people watching and there was a real mix of clientele. Good food, a decent & thought about range of drinks and great service so I can see why. Don't let the decor put you off, may look like your Nan's living room but it all adds to the experience. Well done Micky and team I'll be back and I urge others to give it a go.

Dine in style. Very retro. Great atmosphere. Staff excellent. Good food. May a bit more of a selection on the menu would have helped but what we had was enjoyable. Would recommend a visit.

I'd like to recommend Arcado's. It doesn't look like it'd be a great place to eat somehow.. but it is. Faultless staff - friendly, helpful, easy to talk to. You can see inside the kitchen from the bar, which is great. Great beer and some lovely (if pricey) cocktails. Most of all, the food is sublime. The menu has personality - and there's some lovely surprises. You don't get that at Pizza Express next door! Some of the nicest food around.
