“One of the best...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Everything about Edesia is superb- modern decor, the best food and service you will find.anywhere. The extensive wine list caters for all occasions. The food is prepared with such care producing wonderful flavours each complimenting the main event. Each plate is photographic quality.

“Really pleasant dining experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

Frequented this place on many occasions with friends, as a couple and with a teenage son.all have been very nice experiences.
Decor nice , fresh and spacious. With a bar and seating for those pre diner drinks-looks comfortable.
Food has always been tasty and well presented.
Best to book in the evenings at least several days before.
Done a few impromptu lunch dates here and managed to get a table without any trouble.

“An oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Fortunately we had a local guide to direct us to one of the best on a recent business trip to Christchurch. We were there for lunch and although getting a drink while waiting for others to arrive proved difficult, the food coming out of the kitchen was superb.

Fresh fish, with a sauce that didn't kill off the subtle fish flavours, was well cooked and delicious.

“A very enjoyable evening at Edesia.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

A recent addition to Christchurch's restaurant scene (in the last couple of years) Edesia is very popular with local diners, so bookings are preferable, especially for evening dining. There is a comfortable bar area for pre-dinner drinks, decor is modern and elegant, and the food is excellent. Service is friendly and parking is almost at the door.

The new rugby venue in Addington is only a few minutes walk from this restaurant.
