We are so happy that this restaurant was recommended to us! It's definitely one of my top 3 restaurants while traveling around in New Zealand and very reasonably priced!

We enjoyed our meal very much. The food was very creative compared to most nationally focused restaurants. I had the Mediterranean grilled lamb salad. Everyone in our party was happy with the meal. Service was adequate but there was room to improve here.

This place has one of the best lamb we have ever had. Great place, great interior and what a great price!! Highly recommended to anyone that likes some grilled meat.

New to Christchurch, we arrived without a reservation and accepted a bar table (the restaurant was packed on a Tuesday night). The hostess was so kind and quickly moved us to a table in the restaurant when one became available. The waitress gladly made little modifications to the dishes to suit our preferences and the food was delivered in a timely manner.

Some notes regarding the actual food: it was very good but not great - for example, the veggies were julienned and sauteed. Great would have been grilled, and they'd have included eggplant. The falafel patties were big and soggy - great would have been smaller and crispier. The lamb was braised and was very good tasting - had it been roasted to finish, it would have been spectacular. The little salad was not memorable or even very Greek.

Nice wine offering and great bar menu including a huge Ouzo selection.

We visited on a Sunday night and had one of the most memorable family meals we remember. From the very beginning the atmosphere of the restaurant, set the scene of an evening that made me think I was In gastronomical heaven. Our table of 3 all rated it 10/10. That was a first for us. Staff, Atmosphere, Menu and Ohhhh yes lets not forget the food. It was to die for! We will return definitely and I don't think it would be possible to be dissappointed at this restaurant. Only perhaps if you forget to book first. Its well liked.
