“Good food, prices, location - but a few neg points”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We dined last Sunday evening, a table of 8 for my birthday at the late sitting of 8pm (Costas does 2 sittings, 6.30pm and 8pm). We were a table of mid 20s - 30s (4 couples). We were asked if we wanted to order any drinks first by our waitress when we were seated. When we placed our order with her - she asked for ID. 2 of us didnt have ID - we didnt bring our bags, our husbands were paying. I thought this was strange to be asked for ID at dinner when ordering a drink with a main meal. The waitress referred to me as Mam, yet thought i was young enough to be under under 18! - In the end my husband left and went home and picked up my ID.
The food is really good, flavorsome and really great prices. good for a small group, dining area isnt very large, but do enjoy this restaurant. Loctaed in a business style park. Downside - no outdoor dining or courtyard etc. Would def go again - but will remember my ID!!!!!!
Free desert as it was my birthday.

“Made a 50th even better”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Fabulous venue and meal for a 50th Birthday celebration with family and friends that surpassed everyones expectations. A wonderful atmosphere, the service was excellent (Sarah from Villa.... you rock) the meals were authentic, tasty and generously sized... one of the best dining experiences we have ever had and will be back when we next revisit Christchurch....

“Good greek food”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Good food, good ambiance and good service. Had calamari, not bad; mini moussaka, disapoointed that it was fried shell, but tasted delicious, lamb stew was tender and rich tasting.
