“Amazing food”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Well what can I say , coming from London with such a choice of high class and differing cuisines costas taverna is up there with the best london has to offer . The lamb is to die for it just melts in your mouth with all the flavours coming through.
The wine list is small but has some really good wines on the list .i would highly recommend this restaurant .

“Kleftiko is my absolute favorite.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Welcome back to Costas Taverna. It has been a long hard road from February 22 2011. How wonderful to have you all back. On our first visit to your new restaurant site I had to have kleftiko as it is my absolute favorite. The lamb just melts in your mouth. The new dessert minis, no more deciding which dessert to have. Now I can have a little of them all. Baklava ice cream is
amazing. When you come to Christchurch plan to have dinner at Costas taverna at least twice, even then you will feel like you are missing out.
